Dragon Quest: My Story

We’re back and this week we’re reviewing Netflix’s Original Animated film Dragon Quest: Your Story, an adaptation of Dragon Quest V from Square Enix and the manga. But we don’t do it alone, we’ve brought on Gran from Gilmore Ball Z. Having spent most of his quarantine time playing through the long Dragon Quest franchise, he brings the expertise to compare this CG animated film to its source material.

If you haven’t heard of the film before Dragon Quest: Your Story centers on Luca who is following in his father’s footsteps and must find the hero who wields the zenithian sword to save his mother from Ladja. That said, the film offers up meta commentary on gaming and the franchise that takes the movie from a basic adaptation to a film worth watching while you quarantine – especially if you’re using games to cope.
