The Dragon Prince

This came out on Netflix recently. Anyone see it?

It's by one of the creators of Avatar, and seems to fit the same age bracket and mix of drama and humor as Netflix's Voltron. Which is great.

It's set in a fantasy, WoW-type world. Humans vs. elves and dragons. The story, voice acting and dialogue is all really enjoyable. A standard fantasy setting but it's got that Lore Building (TM) that Herochat loves.

The animation is... different. It looks like a combination of CGI and cell-shaded pictures. The character designs are outstanding. If you pause it, it looks fantastic. But the movements can be a bit jerky. It doesn't bother me at all, but it has been a source of criticism.

I loved this show. Looking forward to Season 2.

I noticed that each character is basically a DnD archetype (Fighter, wizard, warlock, ranger, rogue and even barbarian.)
