The 2016 movie’s synopsis is as follows: “In the majestic city of Bonta, 10-year-old Joris leads a happy sheltered life in the magic shop of his adopted father, KerubCrepin. Yet the day Joris defies Kerub and seeks out his idol, the great athlete Khan Karkass, a Gobbowl superstar, everything changes for the worst! Unfortunately, the terrifying vengeful witch Julith has returned to Bonta vowing to destroy the city, and she quickly seizes the opportunity to kidnap Joris. Only Julith knows that Joris has a Black Dragon soul hidden deep inside of him, as well as secret powers that will help her obtain all her evil desires.”
