Embark on the journey of a lifetime with Eragon, an action-packed fantasy adventure crammed full of mind-blowing special effects! Join the stellar cast of Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich, Robert Carlyle, Sienna Guillory and newcomer Ed Speleers in a thrilling quest to uncover a secret destiny. The one and two-disc versions of Eragon are released to buy and rent on 16th April 2007 by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Eragon (Speleers) is an ordinary farm boy living a quiet life, until, on a hunting trip in the King's forest, the adventure of a lifetime begins as, in a flash of light a glowing blue stone appears at his feet. When, later, he examines his unusual find, it begins to tremble and hatch, revealing a spectacular creature...
Unbeknownst to Eragon, he has witnessed the hatching of the last dragon, and has been chosen to become the last free dragon rider - a warrior with the power to change the fate of his world! The only other living man with this unique ability is Galbatorix (Malkovich, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) the tyrant King who destroyed all other riders in order to seize power over Alagaesia.
Out of his depth, Eragon seeks help from Brom (Irons, Kingdom of Heaven) a mysterious man with a dark past, and an in-depth knowledge of dragons. Help comes too late, however, as, in his quest to destroy the dragon, Galbatorix's magician Durza (Carlyle, The Full Monty) unleashes a horde of vicious beasts who raid the village burning everything to the ground.
As the last free dragon rider, Eragon must accept his destiny as warrior and wage a mighty war alongside Brom, the beautiful princess Arya (Guillory, Love Actually), and the last vestige of rebellion - The Vaden.
Sensational battle scenes and stunning special effects make Eragon one of the most spectacular DVD releases of the year. The two-disc version of the release includes an entire disc of featurettes, storyboards, audition footage and interviews.
