Films: Dolittle (2020)
Height/Weight: Twice that of an average elephant.
Summary: The classic tale of a man who can talk to animals has been told and told again. Whether it be a musical with Rex Harrison or a comedy starring Eddie Murphy, it seems to be a winning concept. Unfortunately, the most recent adaptation feels more like something you'd expect Adam Sandler to do on his off-days...but at least there's a dragon of all things in it!
History: Somewhere hidden from civilization, there lies the Eden Tree. It is said that its fruit can cure any disease there is, but also that there's a ferocious dragon guarding it. Countless people have tried and failed to get past the beast, but this has had a detrimental effect on it as well. The poor dragon has not only had to deal with the loss of her mate, but her eating so much junk attached trespassers has resulted in her power going haywire. And this is before the good doctor shows up looking for a cure for the Queen.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After managing to appeal to the dragon's emotions, Dolittle diagnoses the beast with major...anal blockage. Yes, this is the one film where you get to see a dragon undergo a colonoscopy. It only ends after they remove a large pair of bagpipes out the other end. After that, the grateful dragon, now glowing a florescent sea green instead of boiling orange red, guides them to the Eden Tree, and the mission is accomplished.
Powers/Abilities: Breathing fire, as well as a near-impenetrable hide.
Weakness: Bad diets, apparently, will cause her power to go haywire and leave her quite irritable.
Scariness Factor: 4-This is admittingly a very powerful dragon. Her fury is so great, she's literally glowing with it. And woe betide those who dare steal from her tree. However, her threat is slightly diminished by the fact that she's not malicious, just good at her job to a rather self-destructive degree. Aside from that, she can be agreeable, if a bit justifiably pushy.
Trivia: -The dragon was voiced by Frances de la Tour, an actress best known for her role in the British sitcom "Rising Damp" as Ruth Jones.
One would be forgiving for thinking that the original "Dr. Dolittle" stories had nothing as fantastical as dragons in them. But that couldn’t be farther than the truth. Just look at the Pushmi-Pullyu, a large gazelle/Unicorn hybrid with heads at each end of its body. There's also the Great Glass Sea Snail, a massive mollusk that serves as a sea mount, and the Giant Lunar Moth, a huge insect ambassador between the Earth and Moon.
