I watched this title with Keira, my 3 year old and regretted not watching it ahead of time myself to check it out to make sure it was age appropriate. So up front. This is not appropriate for younger children in my opinion. Keira was scared by several scenes (a skeleton, a frightening dragon and even a dragon that tries to commit suicide).
There were also artistic choices that I feel were poorly made for a movie aimed at children. I was also pretty disappointed to see that female characters were either evil or vapid.
Add to the mix the poor animation quality and you have a movie worthy of the bottom of the bargain bin.
While Keira did enjoy one song on the DVD, it unfortunately that was not enough to turn around our experience and make it worth a replay.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the above mentioned DVD in order to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are honest and my own.
