But for the sake of easier human pronunciation, “Drago” will do.

Hmph. Sounds like “Hissyoxylammochogunther” to me.
Sir Ben Kingsley delivers a fine vocal performance for Drago, and the animators of Terminal FX Ukraine provide a splendid visual performance. Drago shares his heart with Gareth, played by Julian Morris, who in turn plays Prince Phillip in Once Upon a Time.
Drago comes to Earth inside a giant meteor. His purpose is to hatch a clutch of dragon eggs he’s brought with him, and train the newborns in the defense of mankind. But it’s a risky endeavor, as two of the nine eggs … explode … during the adventure. The direct-to-video story raises questions that, hopefully, will be answered by the filmmakers in interviews. Such as, why would extra-terrestrial dragons care about what happens to Man? Why would Drago land his meteor near a human population? Why not land in a remote area till the eggs are hatched and the younglings can fend for themselves? What has Drago sacrificed in his coming to Earth–distancing himself from family and friends? Have other Dragon-meteors landed elsewhere on the planet? Does Drago communicate with his home constellation? The concept is intriguing, but will the storytellers embellish it?
