What a joy it is to be on the receiving end of a gift–especially when it’s a surprise from the fine folks at Wonderstorm, makers of The Dragon Prince on Netflix. This is what is known in the entertainment biz as “swag”–promotional goods or items. The swag of The Dragon Prince is extraordinary. It goes to show how classy the Wonderstorm studio is.
The package arrived November 28. It contained a color promotional card with a handwritten message in the back by Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond, the showrunners; a hat with the symbol of Katolis, and a box of chocolates.
The chocolates are not any run-of-the-mill chocolates. They are One-Up Chocolates, custom-made for the series. Each chocolate has different combos of flavor, styled after the prominent members of the cast: Callum, Rayla, Ezran, Aaravos, Claudia, and Soren. Click on the image to expand it, and you can see the flavors attributed to each cast member. Tasty custom-made chocolates. Amazing, isn’t it?
The backs of each piece are labeled!

The most valuable keepsake of the swag is this colorful card extolling the cracked mirror motif of Season Four: “Mystery of Aaravos.” Why so special? Because there’s a handwritten personal message from the show’s creators, Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond. It’s like getting a letter from Walt Disney or the Fleischer Bros. when their studios were gearing up. If you check out The Dragon Prince on Netflix, you can see the emphasis on quality, both visual and storytelling. This is just the beginning for Wonderstorm.
Thanks, Aaron and Justin, for these gifts, and for the gift of your show.
