Dragons were large, fire-breathing reptiles.
Dragons appeared worldwide as creatures in fairy tales, though they did exist worldwide, namely in China, where dragons were revered as creatures of great and noble bearing. As they appeared in many different locations, their appearances differed depending on where they lived. All dragons could breathe fire, and some could fly. One particular dragon was said to guard the Scrolls of Thebes that were located in China, and the writings found there stated that disrespecting the creature would bring about destruction. The resurrected Chinese Emperor Han could morph into a large, three-headed dragon at will.
Behind the Scenes
The dragon shown in the third film was created with computer-graphic imagery that was edited in with the live-action performers.
