Streaming giant Netflix announced that it has renewed its animated series The Dragon Prince during the show’s panel at WonderCon 2019, unveiling key art for the forthcoming third season featuring the young titular dragon prince himself, Azymondias -- Zym for short -- and an adult dragon.

It follows young human princes Callum (voiced by Jack DeSena) and Ezran (Sasha Rojen), who set out on a journey with the Moonshadow Elf Rayla (Paula Burrows) to return the dragon prince to his mother. However, the journey is made all the more difficult by the king’s advisor Viren (Jason Simpson) and his children, Claudia (Racquel Belmonte) and Soren (Jesse Inocalla).

Created by Aaron Ehasz (Avatar: The Last Airbender) and Justin Richmond (Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception), The Dragon Prince Season 1 premiered on Netflix in September 2018, quickly earning a dedicated fan following.
