George and the Dragon

Synopsis: The first crusade to free the Holy Land has ended. A mass of weary knights, squires, soldiers of fortune and priests are making their way home across a Europe that has changed forever. George, a handsome English knight, unsettled by the horrendous bloodletting he witnessed in Palestine, desires to hang up his sword and settle down to a quiet, peaceful life. On returning to England, George heads north where he's heard the land is good and the population sparse and of a kindly King named Edgaar. He finds King Edgaar in a terrible state. His beautiful daughter, Lunna has recently disappeared. In return for a small plot of land, George agrees to search for Princess Lunna. With Edgaar's faithful servant, Elmendorf, George sets out. George discovers both the princess and the truth behind her strange disappearance. The quest now set before them ends in a love, a lie and a legend that has lasted a thousand years.

As the elders explain it,

every story begins and ends

at the crossing of two paths.

So, for some, this story begins

on the shores of France.

Two men, once enemies,

whose paths first crossed

in battle,

now face different roads

in their journey as friends.


things won't be the same

without you.

What will I do with myself

when you're not praying

five times a day?

Do exactly the same thing

you wouId do when l was praying.

-No, that's impossible.


Because l was stealing

your food.

Come with me to England.

Come with me to Spain.

We'll find El Cabillo together.

-We'll continue our adventures.

-l can't.

Right now what l seek are two head

of cattle and an acre of farmland.

Always the hopeless romantic.

l hate it when you do that.

Others say it began the same day

with the escape of Father Bernard.

l was going to tie

your feet together,

but l want to see you kick.

Ashepherd on the run

from his flock.

But most say it began

right here in England

with the disappearance of Princess

Lunna on the eve of her wedding.

Would you look at this?

l'm busy.

Come here, you really need

to see this.

Maybe the old rope trick.

The oId rope trick.

Praise God, my son.

You saved my...

You're a Moor.

Yes, l am.

So Tarik headed off to Spain

in search of adventure and the

legendary mercenary, El Cabillo,

whilst George

rowed home to England.

The word of God warms the soul

but good wine warms the beIIy.


-I have to ask you...

How did a Christian knight

befriend a MusIim Moor?

WeII, it's quite simple, really.

He tried to cut my head off.

l was in Jerusalem,

in the ruins

of a small building.

There were two Arab men.

One was dead,

the other was mortally wounded.

l was kneeling over the man

when Tarik came into the building.

And why didn't he kill you?

Well, because he realised

l wasn't trying to kill the man.

l was giving him water

to ease his suffering.

The man was Tarik's own brother.

So what are your plans now?

Hopefully find a quiet place

to settle down.

Perhaps find a wife.

But first I have family to visit.

Here in the forest, men search

for the missing princess.

None more so than

Lord de Gurney.

For he had much to lose.

The king had given him

the princess's hand,

and once wed, he would have

the power and riches he coveted.

Even without the princess's love,

he'd marry her and rule the kingdom.

But no one thought "dragon."

They had long since

become legend.

But looking back,

this story really began when George

returned to the village of Loar

and our paths crossed

for the first time.

Are you lost, sir?

And where's your horse?

No, l'm not Iost

and l have no horse.

l'm here to find Sir Robert.

He'd be old now.

He's still here,

and he's still oId.

I'm Wryn.

l'm George.

Very pleased to meet you,


Sir Robert?

-l'll take you to him.

-Thank you, kind sir.

You be carefuI

with that lance, boy.


ls anybody home?

My eyes may be weak,

but even after 15 years

l know the voice of my own son.

Come here, my boy!


I never gave up hope.

l knew you'd come back.

You know, so often

l dreamt l was there,

fighting alongside of you.

Sir Robert?

May we come in?

Yes, yes, come in.

My son, the hero!

Prepare a feast.

Shall we cook

him first or heat him

on the hoof?

l don't know, Bulchar.

He looks a little tough.

Might need a little tenderising.

So, you're the famous El CabiIIo.

You know, l was hoping

you could teach me something.

lf you're looking for a teacher,

then you've made a very poor choice.

l only have four lessons, and sadly
