Network’s First-Ever Original CGI Movie Airs Wednesday, November 24 at 7 p.m. (ET/PT)
Cartoon Network’s first-ever CGI original movie event, Firebreather, premieres on Wednesday, November 24 at 7 p.m. (ET/PT). Directed by Peter Chung (Aeon Flux) and based on the comic book series by Phil Hester and Andy Kuhn, Firebreather delivers fierce action in the clash of two worlds where monsters roam the Earth and past secrets are exposed. At the center of it all, a teenage boy named Duncan struggles to find his place as half-Kaiju and half-human.
It’s not easy being a teen like Duncan. His mom wants him to pay more attention to his homework, while his dad — a 120-foot, fire-breathing Kaiju from the depths of the earth — wants him to follow in his monstrous footsteps. Duncan faces trials by fire from two worlds – in one, overcoming his father’s challenges to prepare for the Kaiju throne; in the other, coping with life in a new high school. Ultimately, Firebreather is a story of a boy choosing between two different paths put before him by his parents. Through it all, only Duncan can determine his own future.
