The CGI adaption of Firebreather – a comic about a half-dragon, teenage superhero created by Phil Hester and Andy Kuhn – debuts November 24 at 7PM EST/PST on Cartoon Network.

The movie is directed by Peter Chung, creator of animated series Æon Flux (not to be confused with the live-action film), and written by Jim Kreig. [Lovejoy/Weasel Wordsmith]

Details according to Cartoon Network:

Firebreather delivers fierce action in the clash of two worlds where monsters roam the Earth and past secrets are exposed. At the center of it all, a teenage boy named Duncan struggles to find his place as half-Kaiju and half-human.

It's not easy being a teen like Duncan. His mom wants him to pay more attention to his homework, while his dad — a 120-foot, fire-breathing Kaiju from the depths of the earth — wants him to follow in his monstrous footsteps.

Duncan faces trials by fire from two worlds — in one, overcoming his father's challenges to prepare for the Kaiju throne; in the other, coping with life in a new high school. Ultimately, Firebreather is a story of a boy choosing between two different paths put before him by his parents. Through it all, only Duncan can determine his own future.

For those preferring to see their superheroes on dead trees, Amazon has vol. one, two and three, plus one-shot Firebreather vs. Dragon Prince.

Gotta be honest, I've read a number of the Firebreather issues and not really been impressed (most of those issues were bought in the hopes of seeing the full-blooded dragon father - who looks much better in the dead tree form also IMHO). The clip above also does not inspire much in the way of confidence.

Human mom and Dragon dad... who let that happen? Alright which one of you did it?

EDIT: just watched the video. I don't think it looks very good. I haven't read the comic but I can see that I wouldn't like this movie very much.

The concept just reeks too heavily of cliches.

Also, I predict a massive popularity for half-dragon DnD characters for the fans of the 4.5 edition.

Uhm, I don't know about you, But I am definitely NOT watching that movie. How did a '120-foot Dragon' and a maybe 5' 10" Woman make this horrific child. I think this movie might be worse than Elephant Man. Cartoon Network REALLY went downhill after Toonami died in a spaceship accident. I'm goona make this simple and pre-rate this movie 0/5 stars. Good Job on another fail Cartoon Network.
