The trailer for this film, which originally premiered during 2019, shows everything from dragons to unicorns and fans can’t wait for this adventure to begin.
This animated feature film features the voice acting of Tom Holland and Chris Pratt, both formerly of Marvel movies Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
