What's with the new art??

The art of American Dragon has been in a state of continuous development since the very beginning.

However, the unusually long scheduling gap between the final episode of the first season and the beginning of the second season has forced the Disney Channel to repeatedly re-air the same few episodes (from the end of Season One) over and over for nearly a year now.

Long time viewers who have become accustomed to the "look" of that small handful of episodes from the end of last season may be surprised to finally see new changes going into the second season.

But once you get used to seeing new episodes again, I think you'll find the stories in the new season every bit as exciting as when you fell in love with the show in the first place. And you'll agree that the that the ongoing evolution of Jake's character and artwork remains true to the philosophy of the show...That Dragons change over time.

This is one of the things that makes American Dragon unique, and extremely different from traditional animated shows, where nothing ever changes, and villains are never really defeated, and the artwork tends to be very static from first episode to last.

On American Dragon, you will see Jake (and even Haley) continue to grow and develop. Jake learns from his mistakes, and gains additional powers. New characters will appear and develop. Stories will reach surprising conclusions, and new ones begin. Secrets will be revealed. And unlike typical cartoons where the bad guy always seems to get away in the end... Evil will be defeated. But perhaps I've said too much.

Cool things to look for: Catch a glimpse of the secret Magical Map of New York City during some of the scene transitions.
