Trivia

When Rian comments on Mira having wings, Mira responds saying "Of course I do, I'm a girl". This is most likely a parallel to the 1982 film. When Jen tells Kira that he doesn't have wings, Kira responds saying "Of course you don't, you're a boy" See more »

Quotes

The Scientist: Cruel, pernicious Emperor, preeminent minds are never properly appreciated in their time.
[grumbling]
The Scientist: But every problem obfuscates a solution waiting to be discovered. If the Crystal cannot draw enough power from Thra, then I must provide it with another source.

OMG
30 August 2019 | by aarongnrSee all my reviews

I was looking forward to this for many months, and it did NOT disappoint.

What an epic start! I personally didn't watch the original and knew basically nothing about it, but the trailers looked REALLY good.

I had chills twice during this episode... OMG this was really awesome.
