Zog, the newest award-winning animation from Triggerfish, is now streaming on Showmax in Africa.
Zog is the liveliest but clumsiest pupil in his class at Dragon School, where he wants to win a gold star as he learns how to fly, roar and breathe fire. He meets a kindly young girl, who patches up his bumps and bruises, but can she help him with his trickiest school assignment yet: capturing a princess?
Hugh Skinner (Harlots) plays the clumsy dragon; Patsy Ferran (Jamestown) is the kindly young girl; Kit Harington (Jon Snow in Game of Thrones) is the bumbling knight Sir Gadabout; Sir Lenny Henry (Broadchurch) is the narrator; Tracey Ullman is Madame Dragon; and Rob Brydon is many characters, as usual for a Magic Light special.
Zog is the fourth series of BBC Christmas adaptations from Triggerfish and Magic Light, following the multi-award-winning Donaldson-Scheffler adaptations Stick Man (2015) and The Highway Rat (2017) as well as the Oscar-nominated Roald Dahl adaptation Revolting Rhymes (2016).
