These big beasts remain most popular among fictional animals who continue to amaze us with their legendary wings and their breath of fire. Here is a list of our favourite movie dragons that we love and admire.

Saphira in Eragon

She may be a dragon, but she's one of the most important characters in the book. In fact, you could make the case that, although this book is called Eragon, without a Saphira there'd be no Eragon. Dude would still be in Carvahall, digging turnips with a spoon or whatever it was he was up to. Don't forget that it is Saphira's choice to find Eragon, and that his heroism is only the result of whatever dragon-y insights she had into his character. More than anyone, Saphira is responsible for unleashing the potential in her partner-in-flight.
