It has all the ingredients to be a classic fairy tale - a knight, fire-breathing dragons, princess in distress, a trusty steed - but, as it turns out, new short '850 metres' from director Joeri Christiaen (opens in new tab) is anything but. Produced by Thuristar (opens in new tab) and Lunanime (opens in new tab), this is a refreshing, not to mention incredibly funny, take on the well-known 'rescue the princess' story.
At just under 15 minutes long, the short has been in development for a while now, with the teaser first released back in 2010. But the wait was totally worth it, with the team clearly putting in a huge amount of time, effort and precision to this after-hours project.
We won't spoil the suprise for you, but make sure you watch the short all the way to the end to see the brilliant and unexpected twist!
