Just in time for the 2021 holiday break, “Dragons: The Nine Realms,” is giving us a new series based on a loveable film. If you loved “How to Train Your Dragon”, you’re in for a treat with “The Nine Realms.” DreamWorks Animations is giving us all the feels and emotions from the film. But it’s updated in an undeniable way. You’ll notice some familiar voiceover actors when you tune in for the six-episode series. Although you may know him as Andre Junior or Junior from blackish, Marcus Scribner has an extensive voiceover background for animated films. In Hulu’s Dragons: The Nine Realms he plays he plays D’Angelo Baker who’s living in a universe that’s 1,300 years in the future.
I had the opportunity to interview Scribner and executive producer John Tellegen about some of the memorable, relatable moments in the streaming series. Check out my interview below where I ask them three key questions about “Dragons: The Nine Realms” and the topics it’ll inspire your family to discuss including: What similarities or differences will fans of the film notice in the series? How does Scribner compare to his character, D’Angelo Baker? How can parents and kids learn the difference between privacy and secrets in the series?
