"The Lost Dragon" is set in a fantasy world, but there is also some advanced technology, too. The daughter of the king and queen of a village kingdom, Ayaba, is a Black teenager. The kingdom is basically an Afrofuturistic Medieval one. But the Invaders are coming. They want the village. Ayaba learns of a dragon hiding in one of the seven abandoned castles that ring the village. She convinces the adults to go find the dragon, since it could help them defeat the Invaders. But when they find no dragon in the first castle, the adults get skeptical. After finding no dragon in the second and third castles, they give up the quest and prepare to battle the invaders.

Convinced the dragon is real, Ayaba gathers her best friends and they have to find the dragon. The invaders soon kidnap her father and destroy the village's weapons cache and Ayaba and her friends are the last hope, and they can only save Ayaba's father and the village if they work together to find "The Lost Dragon."

I picture it as kind of Pixar-type animated movie.
