Disney+ Hotstar has confirmed Japanese live-action and anime crossover series “Dragons of Wonderhatch” will be streaming exclusively on the platform from 20 December 2023.
Born in our “real world” with sound-color synesthesia – a unique ability that allows her to see colors when she hears certain sounds – Nagi has spent her entire life feeling like she doesn’t belong. Dreaming of one day being able to fly, Nagi will soon come face to face with Thaim, another misfit from a different world. Born in Upananta, Thaim has long been treated like an outcast for his inability to hear the voices of the dragons that inhabit his land.
With the floating islands of Upananta slowly beginning to fall from the sky, the two misfits will set off on an epic adventure spanning both live-action and animated worlds in Dragons of Wonderhatch, coming this December exclusively to Disney+ (Hotstar).
This series stars Sena Nakajima (We Are Little Zombies) as “real world” high school student Nagi; Daiken Okudaira (Nemesis, Mother) as Thaim – a dragon rider from Upananta; and Mackenyu (One Piece) as dragon rider hero Aktha, Dragons of Wonderhatch is directed by live-action director Kentaro Hagiwara, animation director Takashi Otsuka, is produced by Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045), and features breathtaking work from character designer and concept artist Posuka Demizu (The Promised Neverland).
