    Ignitus: In the Year of the Dragon,
    Ignitus: in a world beyond the realms,
    Ignitus: I, like all the others, awaited the birth of the dragon of whom the
             prophecies foretold.
    Ignitus: But the Dark Master heard the prophecies as well.
    Ignitus: I should have hidden the eggs long before, but I... I thought we were
             ready, I thought they were safe...
    Ignitus: oh... how I was wrong.
    Volteer: Save them! The Dark Armies have come!
    Ignitus: May the Ancestors look after you. May they look after us all.
    Titles: Sierra Presents
    Titles: A Krome Studios Production
    Titles: starring Elijah Wood
    Titles: David Spade
    Titles: and Gary Oldman as Ignitus
    Ignitus: Eventually, the egg came to rest in a distant swamp,
    Ignitus: where a family of dragonflies gathered 'round,
    Ignitus: wondering what magnificent creature could possibly live inside.
    Ignitus: They didn't have to wonder for long.
    
                              o------------------------o

    Ignitus: What emerged from the egg frightened them at first, but finally amazed
             and astonished them.
    Spyro: ... eight, nine, ten... here I come!
    Ignitus: It was a purple dragon, who they eventually adopted and raised as one
             of their own.
    Ignitus: They named him Spyro and he grew up alongside Sparx,
    Ignitus: the young dragonfly who was born the same day.
    Ignitus: In fact, the two were almost like brothers.
    Ignitus: And a more oddly-matched, yet compatible pair of brothers the world
             has never seen.
    Sparx: Never catch me this time, purple boy!
    Ignitus: As for Spyro, he, like all of us,
    Ignitus: accepted the world into which he was born, believing he was one of
             them.
    Ignitus: A big purple one of them, true, but one of them nonetheless.
    
    
    
    Spyro: I see you, my little glowing friend.
    Sparx: Seeing and catching are two different things, big boy.
    Spyro: Yeah, you better run.
    
    
    
    Sparx: What's the matter, little Spyro? You can't fly?
    Sparx: Oh, that's right, you walk everywhere. Mmm, thatís too bad.
    Spyro: You're toast when I catch you!
    
    
    
    Sparx: Aaah, must be tough to lose all the time, Sp-...
    Sparx: Alright, let me outta here, you overgrown fungus!
    Sparx: Spyro, seriously, lend me a hand here, will ya brother?
    Spyro: Geez, Sparx, I dunno. Frogweed's gotta eat too.
    Sparx: Spyro, whack it! Do something. Iím your buddy, my wings are getting
           moldy.
    
    
    
    Sparx: Ugghhh... now I smell almost as bad as you do.
    Sparx: Oooh, and thatís pretty bad. See ya later sucker!
    Spyro: So much for gratitude.
    
    
    
    Spyro: Hey, that's cheating! We're not allowed in there!
    Sparx: Pffft... Excuses, excuses. Catch up or give up, chunky!
    
    
    
    Spyro: Where's that little gnat gone now?
    Sparx: Has anyone seen a giant purple thing around here? I seemed to have lost
           mine.
    
    
    
    Sparx: You know, this is getting a little boring... aah AAAH
    Spyro: Sparx!
    Leader: I thought all you guys was gone.
    Sparx: You miserable coward let me go!
    Leader: Grrrr. Ha ha ha ha. Don't let him get away.
    
    
    
    Sparx: Let me outta here and fight me like a... thing... whatever you are. You
           pathetic wretch!
    Leader: Nnnnnnnya! I've had about enough of you...
    Spyro: Sparx look out!
    Spyro: Noooooo... aaaahhhhhhhhhh!
    Sparx: Wha hoo... Was that fire dude?
    Leader: Take care of 'em... I gotta report to Cynder...
    
    
    
    Sparx: Get me outta here, Spyro... I think my wings are singed...
    Spyro: You okay?
    Sparx: You almost torched me, dude.
    Sparx: Wait...
    
    
    
    Sparx: You breathed fire!
    Sparx: So Iím just about ready to blow the top off that place and kick that
           guy's booty,
    Sparx: when Spyro let loose with some serious flame, dude... No Joke. Flames.
           From the mouth.
    Spyro: I was just trying to help.
    Sparx: Some help. You nearly turned me to ashes, dude.
    Sparx: Mom, dad, you shoulda seen him. He came out breathing fire... alright? I
           tell you, it was crazy!
    Sparx: You don't believe me? Spyro, tell 'em...
    Spyro: It's true, dad. I swear. I just got real mad, opened my mouth, and
           whoosh... flame city.
    Flash: It's not that, Spyro. I believe you both.
    Flash: It's just that your mother and I knew this day would come.
    Spyro: What day?
    Flash: The day when we would have to tell you the truth.
    Ignitus: So that was the night that Spyro learned he wasn't a dragonfly after
             all.
    Ignitus: But in fact an exile from an unknown, distant land.
    Spyro: So... you mean... I'm not your real son?
    Nina: You are our real son.
    Nina: It's just that you came from somewhere else.
    Nina: Far away, where wars rage on and on, and the innocent seem to always pay
          the price.
    Ignitus: It wasn't long after that night that Spyro decided to venture forth
             and find his home.
    Sparx: So that's it, huh? Leaving Sparx behind at the old homestead? Not a care
           in the world, donít look back.
    Spyro: This is your home, Sparx, but I just found out that my home is out there
           somewhere...
    Spyro: and I've got to find it.
    Spyro: Besides, I'm not leaving you behind. I'm just leaving you where you
           belong.
    Sparx: Well I thought I belonged with you, 'coz I'm always with you. But I
           guess I was wrong, huh?
    Sparx: I'm sure I'm wrong on a lot of things. You know what? You're right, I'm
           wrong.
    Flash: Don't worry about him, Spyro.
    Flash: You know how hotheaded he can be. You'll see him when you get back.
    Flash: Now, now, son, keep your head up, your nose clean, and use that breath
           of yours wisely.
    Flash: All gifts come with a price.
    Nina: Don't listen to your father's preaching, Spyro. Just be yourself. It's
          all any of us can do.
    
    
    
    Ignitus: So, hard as it was, Spyro left the only family he'd ever known, and
             journeyed on...
    Ignitus: to where he did not know.
    
    
    
    Sparx: Spyro, so, ah, me and the old man were chatting
    Sparx: and this whole belonging thing, you know, came up, and we decided that
           best friends belong together...
    Sparx: even if one of them is purple and does have some weight issues.
    Spyro: Weight issues, huh? At least I've never been turned into a lantern.
    Sparx: Oh please! Lantern shmantern. Let's see what's out there.
    
    
    
    Sparx: Ahhhhhhhhh!
    Spyro: Ahhhhh!
    Sparx: Breathe, Sparx old boy... go to your happy place.
    Spyro: What in the world was that?
    Sparx: I have no idea, but I'm going this way... far from it.
    Ignitus: Which brings us to the moment that Spyro's journey really began.
    Ignitus: When he and I finally met... again... for the very first time... ahhh,
             it's a long story.
    Sparx: And I thought you were a big one. Goodness.
    Ignitus: You're... you're alive?
    Ignitus: But it's too late... too late...
    Spyro: Too late for what? Who are you? Do you know me? Where do I come from?
    Spyro: What are you?... What are we?... WHAT AM I?!?
    Ignitus: You mean you don't know?
    Sparx: Does it sound like he knows?
    Ignitus: You're a dragon. When you were just an egg, it was my job to protect
             you...
    Ignitus: ... it was my job to protect all of you.
    Spyro: There are others?
    Ignitus: Others?
    Ignitus: There were.
    Ignitus: There were four of us, Guardians that is, and we had one job: ensure
             that all the eggs were hatched.
    Ignitus: It was the Year of the Dragon, after all, and our very survival
             depended on those eggs...
    Ignitus: but the Temple and Grotto are now gone... overrun by...
    Spyro: Temple? What Temple? Can you take me? Can I see it? Where I came from, I
           mean?
    Ignitus: No, no.
    Ignitus: Who knows what forces occupy the Temple now. What state it's in.
    Ignitus: You don't understand. After they came for you...
    Spyro: They? Who is they? And why did they come for me?
    Ignitus: Because the prophecies spoke of a Purple Dragon, a dragon born only
             once every ten generations.
    Ignitus: You.
    Sparx: You? Does that mean him?
    Sparx: Wait, this guy? Spyro some special once in a purple thing?
    Sparx: Ha ha, I think you might have mixed that one up. Wooo, thatís a
           little... bit of a stretch.
    Sparx: I've heard some, ah, doozies in my day, but that takes the cake.
    Ignitus: Spyro is it? Well, Spyro, I assure you that I'm telling you the
             truth.
    Ignitus: The Dark Armies attacked, intent on destroying the eggs and killing
             the rest of us.
    Ignitus: They nearly succeeded... and then they lay siege to the other
             islands.
    Ignitus: We were at war.
    
    
    
    Ignitus: For many years we fought all over the islands.
    Ignitus: Brutal clashes with the armies of the Dark Master,
    Ignitus: who was intent on preventing the prophecies from coming true.
    Ignitus: The other three Guardians and I led our small but valiant forces into
             battle after battle against our ruthless,
    Ignitus: mercenary foe.
    Ignitus: Then, when we were beginning to turn the tide... Cynder came.
    Spyro: Cynder?
    Ignitus: Yes, Cynder.
    Ignitus: Cynder was... is... monstrous, horrific, ferocious,
    Ignitus: a black dragon that fills the skies with terror, an unstoppable force
             of nature...
    Sparx: Ah, yeah, you had me at ferocious. Listen, sounds like that thing that
           was chasing us, Spyro.
    Ignitus: Yes, she still searches for me...
    Ignitus: ... and years ago I watched as Cynder plucked the other Guardians from
             the fields of battle,
    Ignitus: like so many ripe grapes from a vine.
    Ignitus: Without them, our cause is lost.
    Ignitus: Only I, Ignitus, managed to escape.
    Ignitus: Not that it matters.
    Ignitus: Cynder now rules all... and I sit here wondering what might have been.
             What else I might have done.
    
    
    
    Sparx: Wow... sounds... fun. I wanna hang out with this guy.
    Spyro: Yeah, why have you given up?
    Spyro: I just find out that I'm this special dragon, and you tell me all is
           lost?
    Spyro: That I have no home or family left? I've come way too far to give up
           now.
    Spyro: I wanna see where I come from.
    Sparx: Hold up, savior boy, were you not listening to this guy?
    Sparx: Heís talking about flying dragons, and war, and horrible... this is bad
           stuff, alright? I donít know if weíre hearing the same thing...
    Ignitus: Yes, Spyro, it's not as simple as that.
    Ignitus: It's true, the prophecies spoke of a purple dragon destined to put his
             stamp on this age,
    Ignitus: but the prophecies didn't foretell the devastation that surrounds us
             now.
    Spyro: Maybe you're right, but I'm willing to try. I want to take the first
           step.
    Sparx: You're actually going to go along with this lunatic?
    Ignitus: Very well then. We'll go. You deserve to see your beginning before it
             all ends.
    Sparx: Am I the only one sane here? Heís telling us weíre doomed alright?
    Sparx: Thatís when I go, ah, maybe we should go back to the forest with the
           flowers and the fun stuff.
    
    
    
    Ignitus: Cynder's soldiers must have knocked the other two statues out of
             place... heathens.
    Spyro: What other two statues?
    Ignitus: On the other side of this door are two statues just like these.
    Ignitus: When all four statues are positioned correctly, the door opens.
    Sparx: Yeah, good. I was never good at geometry. So what do you want us to do?
    Ignitus: Spyro, I need you to get in there and move the statues in place.
    Spyro: Me? How?
    Ignitus: There's a small tunnel that animals use to access the caves. Find it
             and use it.
    Sparx: Yeah, animals, okay. You know what? You do that, and Iíll wait here.
    
    
    
    Sparx: Eh, when in doubt, break it right? Go nuts.
    
    
    
    Ignitus: Any trouble?
    Spyro: A little insect trouble... nothing I couldn't handle.
    Sparx: Little insects, my tail section.
    Ignitus: The past is prelude, tomorrow a dim promise. Allow us entrance, do not
             reject us.
    Sparx: Are you making that up?
    Ignitus: It should open for us.
    Ignitus: There is a... disturbance.
    Ignitus: It seems my fears have been realized: they've desecrated the interior
             as well.
    Ignitus: Guess we'll have to open it the old-fashioned way.
    Ignitus: Make your way through the connecting rooms, restoring every statue you
             can find.
    Sparx: Hey, you know what? Letís donít and say we didnít. Why donít you do it?
    Ignitus: You want my help? Very well. Hop up.
    Sparx: Alright... the old guyís coming to life.
    Ignitus: Careful, Spyro. Cynder's forces are surely on their way.
    Sparx: Oh, goody.
    
    
    
    Sparx: Hey Spyro, what was that about?
    Spyro: I don't really know.
    Spyro: I just felt like I had to hit it... and when I did,
    Spyro: the power of a thousand suns surged through my body.
    Sparx: Right, okay. Well you know what? You should really sleep better.
    Sparx: Y'know, I'm gonna stop buggin you. You really need to get eight hours.
    Spyro: Forget I said anything. Let's go.
    
    
    
    Ignitus: Thatís quite an entrance, young dragon. There might be hope for us
             yet.
    
    
    
    Spyro: What are these things?
    Ignitus: These are Spirit Gems... a gift from the Ancestors.
    Spyro: What kind of gift?
    Ignitus: A gift that speaks across generations...
    Ignitus: a gift that empowers you with the spirit of the past, strengthening
             you with the wisdom of the ages.
    Spyro: I feel more powerful already.
    
    
    
    Ignitus: Do you hear that?
    Spyro: What is it?
    Ignitus: Exactly what I feared.
    Ignitus: Look, Spyro, perhaps we should turn back.
    Spyro: What? After coming this far?
    Ignitus: If this door is closed, it means there are intruders behind.
    Ignitus: It's how the Temple protects itself.
    Sparx: Ah, yeah. Doesn't work too well, does it?
    Spyro: So what are you saying, Ignitus?
    Ignitus: What I'm saying is the only way the door will open...
    Sparx: Don't say it!
    Spyro: ... is if the intruders are kicked out of there.
    Sparx: Didn't I just say donít say it?
    
    
    
    Leader: Well, Ignitus, we nabbed your Guardian buddies but you managed to
            escape our clutches...
    Leader: ... until now...
    Ignitus: Stand back, Spyro, and let me show what a dragon trained in the
             ancient ways can do.
    Sparx: Woah! The big guy's got some moves.
    Spyro: Are you okay, Ignitus?
    Ignitus: Yes, as I get older it takes longer to recover...
    Spyro: You were incredible, Ignitus. Can you show me how to do that?
    Ignitus: Patience, young dragon. Soon enough you'll learn all I have to teach.
    Ignitus: But right now you must fight!
    
    
    
    Ignitus: If Cynder's forces were here, there will certainly be more of them in
             the Temple.
    Sparx: Oh goody.
    Spyro: They won't be there for long.
    Sparx: Wonderful... now he's getting cocky.

    Ignitus: Ahhh, home sweet home.
    
    
    
    Sparx: Spyro, we're not in Kansas anymore...
    Spyro: What happened here?
    Ignitus: This is what Cynder has done. Put all the islands under her iron
             rule.
    Spyro: I wanted to see where I came from... but I didn't know it was going to
           be like this.
    Sparx: Yeah, no offense, but this place is a bit of a dump.
    Ignitus: This was once our home, Spyro.
    Ignitus: Together we can make it our home once again... reclaim what's
             rightfully ours.
    Spyro: What do you mean?
    Ignitus: I mean that my time for heroics is past... but with your help, we
             might be able to beat Cynder.
    Spyro: I... I can't, Ignitus. I just learned what I am.
    Ignitus: You can, Spyro, you can. You are a purple dragon... a very special
             creature.
    Ignitus: You've given me hope again. Now it's time to give hope to all of
             them.
    Spyro: I'm not sure what help I can be, Ignitus, but I'll try...
    Spyro: ... I'll try.
    Ignitus: Good. That's all I can ask. Now come with me. I have something for
             you.
    Ignitus: The style you used earlier is crude, archaic, and obvious, Spyro, but
             you got the job done.
    Ignitus: Not bad, considering you haven't been taught anything about what it
             means to be a dragon.
    Spyro: Thanks...
    Spyro: ... I think.
    Ignitus: But if you're going to have a chance against Cynder and her army,
             you're going to need to learn a lot more.
    Sparx: Oh good... school.
    Ignitus: Unlike any school you've ever known, young friend.
    Ignitus: Now... it's time to unleash the true dragon within you.
    Ignitus: Each of the Guardians is master of an element.
    Ignitus: I, as you may have surmised, am master of fire.
    Ignitus: Pay attention and you may be someday too. Let's begin.
    
    
    
    Sparx: So what's with the pool, big guy?
    Ignitus: If you must know, certain dragons have the ability to see visions...
    Ignitus: the thoughts, memories, and dreams of others...
    Ignitus: and to see what's happening in places far, far away.
    Ignitus: I am one such dragon, and in this pool the visions come forth.
    Sparx: Oh really, is that so? Okay what am I thinking now?
    Sparx: What am I thinking now?
    Sparx: Okay, now? Now? Now, now, now, now, now?
    Ignitus: I'm afraid it's not that easy, Sparx. It takes time, reflection, and
             patience.
    Ignitus: What I do see in the Pool of Visions is that Volteer, one of the
             Guardians, is being held on Dante's Freezer.
    Ignitus: Spyro, while I look for details on the others, I want you to venture
             there and find out what you can.
    Ignitus: Remember, just look around. If you encounter Cynder, run... you're not
             ready to face her yet.
    Sparx: Okay, so when people are trying to kill me I run. Got it.
    Spyro: But Ignitus, how do we get there?
    Ignitus: I'm glad you asked.
    Sparx: Why are you smiling. I donít like it.
    Spyro: Let me get this straight, you're saying that I... can fly?
    Sparx: Maybe you've been hanging in those caves a little too long, Old Man.
           Spyro can't fly. We all know that.
    Spyro: Yeah, a bit of fresh air might do you good. I've never flown in my
           life.
    Ignitus: It's you that will be getting some fresh air, Spyro.
    Ignitus: Now... close your eyes, take a deep breath, and empty your mind...
    Ignitus: ... yes, yes, that's it.
    Ignitus: Now feel the power of your ancestors coursing through your body.
    Ignitus: In times of crisis they will come to you and teach you... unlocking
             powers you never knew you had.
    Sparx: Boy, this I gotta see.
    Ignitus: Just forget everything you ever thought you knew... forget yourself.
    Ignitus: Only through forgetting will you remember what your ancient blood
             already knows...
    Ignitus: ... you can fly.

    Ignitus: Dante's Freezer is a desolate arctic expanse that's littered with the
             machinery of war...
    Ignitus: soldiers and weapons frozen forever in the posture of destruction.
    Ignitus: You must find Volteer before he's lost forever.
    Spyro: How the heck do I land?
    Spyro: Coming in too fast!
    Sparx: This... doesn't look good.
    Spyro: Incoming
    Sparx: Thatís gonna hurt.
    Sparx: Nice landing, ace.
    Spyro: Yeah. Maybe this flying thing aint for me.
    Sparx: Well, it sure doesn't help that you're carrying all that weight
    Sparx: You know, throw a salad in every once in a while. You might be okay.
    Spyro: Yeah, I think I'll stick to the ground for a while.
    Sparx: Good idea.
    Spyro: Not exactly a friendly place, huh? Wonder where we should start.
    Sparx: Well, I'm no hero like you, but maybe we should take that clearly marked
           path that leads to the interior.
    
    
    
    Sparx: Is it weird that that blinked at me?
    Spyro: Just keep moving.
    Sparx: Ice cubes alive!
    
    
    
    Sparx: Why don't we use this thing to knock that bad boy down?
    Spyro: Ha, ha. I knew I brought you along for a reason.
    
    
    
    Spyro: That was a good idea... glad I thought of it.
    Sparx: You, glad you? No.
    
    
    
    Sparx: You think that was Cynder?
    Spyro: I sure hope so.
    Sparx: What?
    Spyro: Well, if it wasn't, it means there's more than one giant evil dragon
           around here.
    Sparx: Oh yeah, I hope that was Cynder too.
    
    
    
    Sparx: Look out!
    Sparx: Spyro? You okay, buddy?
    Sparx: Wooo! I guess so.
    
    
    
    Sparx: Maybe we should head this way, genius.
    Sparx: Hey, Sp-...
    Sparx: Oh, check this out.

    Volteer: It borders on the miraculous, incredible, stupendous...
    Volteer: a dragon your size defeating that... that... thing. Thank you... ah...
             ah... ah...
    Spyro: Spyro.
    Volteer: A purple dragon named Spyro.
    Volteer: Amazing.
    Volteer: Of course, there were unsubstantiated rumors of a purple dragon
             countless generations ago,
    Volteer: but most considered it hearsay,
    Volteer: gossip, legend. It's hard to believe, difficult to fathom, amazing to
             comprehend... er... um...
    Sparx: No wonder they gagged this guy.
    Volteer: ... so much time has passed, so many things have been learned,
    Volteer: and now, here he is, standing right before me...
    Sparx: Excuse me... Mr. Volt.
    Volteer: Wha... wha... what is it?
    Sparx: Sir. Should... shouldn't we get going?
    Volteer: Oh, of course, but where to?
    Spyro: Well, back to the Temple.
    Sparx: A friend of yours is waiting.
    Volteer: Ignitus?
    Sparx: Yes, Ignitus.
    Volteer: Of course, much to tell him, many hypotheses to pose. I believe
             that...
    
    
    
    Ignitus: Yes, yes, Volteer, it's good to see you as well, but we don't have
             time to waste on sentiment.
    Ignitus: Back to Cynder... she was doing what to you?
    Sparx: Cynder's a chick?
    Volteer: It's hard to be absolutely sure, Ignitus,
    Volteer: but it seems she was using me as some sort of suspended, organic power
             source...
    Sparx: Huh?
    Spyro: She was using him as a battery.
    Sparx: Why didn't he just say so?
    Volteer: Not only that, she also left with a glowing yellow orb... and I
             believe that I somehow powered it.
    Volteer: Does this mean anything to you, Ignitus?
    Ignitus: Perhaps... perhaps. What I do know is that we need to rescue the other
             Guardians...
    Ignitus: before Cynder can power any more of those orbs.
    Volteer: I agree, Ignitus, but first I'd like to impart some useful knowledge
             to Spyro,
    Volteer: vis-a-vis his recently-acquired electricity-based exhalation device.
    Sparx: What?
    Spyro: He says he'd like to teach me some things about that Electricity
           Breath.
    Sparx: Oi! Why doesnít he just say so?
    
    
    
    Ignitus: Spyro... Cyril, the Ice Guardian, was taken to Tall Plains
    Ignitus: ... you and Sparx must go there at once... and find him.
    Spyro: Yes sir.
    Sparx: But if we see danger we should run... right?
    Ignitus: There are times when all of us need to stand up to danger, young
             Sparx.
    Sparx: Yeah, maybe next month, next summer, perhaps next year...
    Ignitus: Just go... now.
    Spyro: Yes sir.

    Ignitus: Tall Plains was once home to a proud ancient tribe called the Atlawa.
    Sparx: Bless you.
    Spyro: Sparx.
    Ignitus: The Atlawa were a people in tune with the rhythms of the seasons,
    Ignitus: focused on their relationship to crops, their surroundings, their
             gods.
    Ignitus: They've all been driven underground by Cynder and her forces, who've
             taken over the tribe's Shrine.
    Ignitus: I sense that's where Cynder is keeping Cyril, trying to power another
             crystal.
    Ignitus: You must find him before she succeeds.
    Sparx: Right, it's never easy, is it?
    Spyro: Nothing worthwhile ever is.
    Sparx: So now you're spouting wisdom, hero boy?
    Spyro: C'mon.
    
    
    
    Spyro: The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
    Sparx: Does that mean what I think it does?
    Spyro: Yeah, we've got to help him.
    Sparx: Oh brother.
    
    
    
    Kane: Watch it, would ya?
    Spyro: I was just trying to help.
    Kane: Well, the Atlawa and Kane need no help.
    Spyro: Oh, just about to spring into action, huh?
    Sparx: Forget this guy, Spyro. Come on.
    Spyro: What did they want with you anyway?
    Kane: It's none of your business. Now move... I've got a tribe to save.
    Sparx: Oh you're welcome!
    
    
    
    Spyro: We're going to have to use the waterwheels to move ahead.
    Sparx: Oh, itís never easy.
    
    
    
    Spyro: Kane!
    Sparx: Yeah, I know the guy's an ingrate, but you gotta do something, and
           fast!
    Sparx: Buddy, you're getting weirder and weirder by the second.
    
    
    
    Kane: You again?
    Kane: Why don't you get outta here and leave me in peace. I'm the boss here...
          nobody else.
    Sparx: Boss of what?
    Spyro: Shhh!
    Spyro: You're all alone?
    Kane: Only until I kick these bums out.
    Kane: Which reminds me, I can't stand here chatting with purple dragons and
          mosquitoes...
    Sparx: Hey, woah, woah. Who you calling a mosquito?
    Kane: Besides, itís not safe for you here.
    Sparx: Oh, concerned about our welfare now?
    Spyro: No need, we can take care of ourselves. Anyway, we need to get to the
           shrine.
    Kane: Youíll never make it.
    
    
    
    Kane: The Shrine God has not been appeased since Cynder's forces came... he is
          not happy.
    Sparx: So, is anybody fun around here?
    Kane: You can't possibly face the God of the Shrine alone.
    Spyro: Not all of us are loners, Kane.
    Spyro: I'm not going alone.
    Spyro: Maybe some day you'll learn that two heads are better than one.
    Spyro: Even if they are pin heads.
    Sparx: Yeah... what?!
    
    
    
    Spyro: I'm not sure I like the looks of this thing.
    Sparx: Now you tell me.
    
    
    
    Sparx: Well, that was fun.
    
    
    
    Kane: I have to admit, you've done better than I thought possible.
    Sparx: Saying that had to hurt.
    Kane: More than you can imagine.
    Kane: There are some things you should know about the Shrine before you
          enter...
    Sparx: And I think we're done here...
    Spyro: Not before we rescue Cyril.
    Kane: The Atlawa Shrine has been desecrated
    Kane: and the God of the Shrine has not been given tribute since Cynder's
          forces arrived.
    Kane: But if you can subdue his anger, the balance will be returned... and my
          people can come home.
    Spyro: That's fine, but I came to free Cyril.
    Kane: You must go through the God of the Shrine to free him.
    Sparx: Knew you were going to say that.

           around this place.
    Sparx: When will I learn? When things look good, run for the hills.
    
    
    
    Kane: You have subdued the God of the Shrine, restored balance to seasons, the
          land, our world.
    Kane: The Atlawas want to worship you now.
    Sparx: Worship?
    Sparx: Okay, now that's what I'm talkin' about...
    Sparx: I've never gotten the respect I deserve... the praise that should be
           mine...
    Spyro: That's very nice, Kane, but we have to get back to our home,
    Spyro: figure out how to stop Cynder for good.
    Sparx: My dear Atlawas, I am the mighty Sparx, scourge of despots...
    Cyril: Yes, yes, old boy, we'd like nothing more than to stay and be a part of
           your
    Cyril: primitive, barbaric society, but
    Cyril: duty calls, duty calls...
    Kane: If you must, you must. But know that you're now part of the Atlawa
          tribe... one of us.
    Sparx: I am the mighty Spar... whatever.
    Kane: By the way... you were right.
    Spyro: About what?
    Kane: Maybe two heads are better than one.
    Kane: Even if one of them belongs to an annoying mosquito.
    Sparx: Mosquito, me? Is that... oh.

    Cyril: Yes, yes, Volteer, I see that months of tortured captivity has done
           nothing to slow that electric
    Cyril: tongue of yours from incessantly wagging.
    Volteer: It's just that it's all so exciting, exhilarating, enchanting,
             enthralling...
    Sparx: All right, no more thesaurus for you, pal.
    Ignitus: All of you please be quiet.
    Ignitus: It is certainly encouraging that Spyro has been able to free two of
             you to allow this reunion,
    Ignitus: but haven't we forgotten someone?
    Cyril: Yes, yes, of course... Terrador.
    Ignitus: Precisely. Now how do we proceed?
    Cyril: I believe I can help, Ignitus.
    Cyril: Well, young chap, since you learned a few things about ice on Tall
           Plains,
    Cyril: I suggest we adjourn to the Training Room so that I can teach you some
           more.
    Cyril: The legacy of the great Ice dragons of yore... my ancestors,
    Cyril: who come from the best of the best of this somewhat bedraggled
           lineage...
    Cyril: is long and storied.
    Cyril: With my help, rescuing Terrador should be a certainty.
    Volteer: Your pomposity, arrogance, and pretentiousness is odious to the
             extreme.
    Cyril: Shall we?
    
    
    
    Cyril: So what exactly are you saying, Ignitus?
    Volteer: Yes, your hypothesis is an intriguing one but it is perplexing to the
             extreme.
    Sparx: Huh?
    Spyro: He says he doesn't know what he's talking about.
    Sparx: Dude, I never know what heís saying.
    Ignitus: What I'm saying is that Cynder is harnessing the Guardians' power to
             unlock a portal
    Ignitus: that must never be opened.
    Spyro: Why, what's behind this portal?
    Ignitus: That doesn't concern you right now. What does concern you is getting
             to Munitions Forge -
    Ignitus: and freeing Terrador before she can create another crystal from his
             powers.
    Volteer: ... and before the volcano blows itís-...
    Ignitus: That's enough, Volteer, there's plenty of time... plenty of time.
    Sparx: Plenty of time? What we need more time to have horrible things happen to
           us?
    Sparx: Why didn't we just stay in Tall Plains? Oh, Iím a big deal there.
    Spyro: Quit complaining Sparx. Maybe there's a tribe on Munitions Forge you can
           save too.
    Sparx: Yeah, but there's always something special about the first tribe you
           save. Ya know?

    Ignitus: Munitions Forge is an island dominated by Boyzitbig,
    Ignitus: an unstable volcano that makes life on the surface very dicey.
    Ignitus: The locals, who live underground, have been forced to mine the metals
    Ignitus: that Cynder uses to forge her army's weapons.
    Spyro: What are the locals called?
    Ignitus: They're called Manweersmalls.
    Sparx: Right. Do I need to write that down?
    Ignitus: Rumor has it that Cynder is holding Terrador somewhere in the mines.
    Ignitus: We know she's using him to power the last of the crystals she needs to
             open the portal.
    Ignitus: Free him before she gets the chance.
    Sparx: Boy is it big!
    Spyro: Boy, itís big! But no time for sightseeing, Sparx.
    Spyro: Time to get serious, let's go.
    Sparx: Ohhh... not again.
    
    
    
    Spyro: Man... is he small!
    Mole-Yair: What's that? Who's there?
    Spyro: It's, it's me, Spyro...
    Sparx: ... and the former god of Tall Plains, Sparx.
    Mole-Yair: You don't carry the stench of Cynder's beasts, so you must be
               friends.
    Spyro: We are.
    Spyro: And who are you?
    Mole-Yair: I am Mole-Yair, leader of the Manweersmalls.
    Mole-Yair: But I'm not much of a leader anymore.
    Mole-Yair: Those of my people who aren't mining for Cynder are holed up in the
               caves,
    Mole-Yair: scared out of their little wits, waiting for Boyzitbig to blow.
    Mole-Yair: Which shouldn't be long.
    Mole-Yair: If you would help me free them, perhaps there's something I could do
               for you?
    Spyro: I don't know. We're here to rescue a big friend of ours.
    Mole-Yair: Is he a mighty dragon?
    Spyro: Yes... why?
    Mole-Yair: Because I know where he's being kept...
    Mole-Yair: in the mines near a large labor camp, where my own brother, Exhumor,
               toils away.
    Mole-Yair: We can help each other.
    Spyro: Well... which way do we go? What should we do next?
    Mole-Yair: Oh, it's simple enough, but we've got to hurry.
    Mole-Yair: Boyzitbig is getting more unstable by the minute.
    Mole-Yair: We must clear these caves before we can help your friend.
    Sparx: You're asking him for directions? Wow, talk about the blind leading the
           blind.
    Spyro: Forget him, Mole-Yair... we're in.
    
    
    
    Mole-Yair: Ha ha! You did it, you did it! A thousand thanks. Mwah, mwah, mwah!
    Spyro: It was nothing.
    Sparx: No problem, pal.
    Mole-Yair: Well... you did your part, now I'll do mine.
    Mole-Yair: Your friend is being kept in the center of the volcano,
    Mole-Yair: past the labor camp where my brother, Exhumor, is working.
    Mole-Yair: Find him and let him know we're friends, and he'll tell you how to
               proceed.
    Spyro: How will we know Exhumor?
    Sparx: Yeah, all you Man-are-we-smalls look the same to me.
    Mole-Yair: Oh, you'll know him. Trust me.
    Mole-Yair: He's the most cantankerous hard-nosed Manweersmall around.
    Mole-Yair: Whatever you do, don't get on his bad side.
    
    
    
    Sparx: I bet you can't ring that bell.
    Spyro: Why would I want to?
    Sparx: Oh, youíre scared.
    Spyro: I'm not scared.
    Sparx: Oh, the big special dragon is scared of the mean old bell...
    Sparx: Oh I didn't know, I'm sorry, oh no, I'm sorry baby, why don't I get your
           pillow all laid out...
    Sparx: SPYRO! Can you hear me? Are you okay, buddy?
    Sparx: Hey listen, forget about those cracks I made about your fatness and
           your,
    Sparx: being purple and stupid and fat, all right?
    Sparx: Just get outta there! Please, Spyro, don't be dead!
    Spyro: Did you say something?
    Sparx: Me? No. No, I was talking out loud, thinking of my day, I gotta do..
    Spyro: Oh, just thought I heard something before I blasted my way out.
    Sparx: Oh, thatís funny. Yeah, no, must be hearing things.
    
    
    
    Conductor: Come on, you worthless waste of flesh... let's go.
    Conductor: We've got to hop on Steam and get back to that flea-bitten dragon.
    Conductor: The crystal should be almost ready... and the volcano is right on
               the brink.
    Spyro: Come on, Sparx, we've got to catch them!
    
    
    
    Sparx: You don't know how to drive this thing.
    Spyro: How hard can it be? It's on rails.
    Sparx: Famous last words.
    
    
    
    Spyro: Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
    
    
    
    Spyro: Wait, wait, wait! We're on your side!
    Exhumor: More likely spies for the Conductor... or that flying beast Cynder!
    Spyro: Mole-Yair sent us!
    Exhumor: My brother is alive?
    Sparx: He sure is, pal, heís all safe and sound. But I gotta say, he's the
           friendly one in the family.
    Exhumor: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. In these dark times, one can't take chances.
    Exhumor: So Mole-Yair is alive. Wonderful news. But why did he send you here?
    Spyro: Well, he said you might be able to tell us where our friend, Terrador,
           is.
    Exhumor: If he's a big dragon, I certainly can.
    Exhumor: The majority of the Manweersmalls are kept here in this camp,
    Exhumor: forced to live above ground and mine for Cynder...
    Exhumor: and there are rumors that your dragon friend is being kept somewhere
             inside...
    Exhumor: in the darkest pits of the volcano.
    Exhumor: All of us are doomed...
    Spyro: Not if we have anything to say about it.
    Exhumor: What do you mean?
    Sparx: Yeah, what do you mean?
    Spyro: I mean we're going to free the Manweeersmalls,
    Spyro: venture to the darkest pits of Boyzitbig, and find Terrador.
    Sparx: Then itís off to karaoke!
    
    
    
    Sparx: Well, I see you two crazy kids found each other.
    Mole-Yair: Yes, at last... thanks to you.
    Exhumor: We're just disappointed you didn't leave any fun for us.
    Spyro: Maybe next time. So now, which way to Terrador?
    Exhumor: That way... but be careful. The Conductor and his maniacal locomotive
             will surely be close by.
    Sparx: When you say be careful, does that mean try not to die? Iím trying to do
           that anyway.
    Mole-Yair: Come, Exhumor, we must get all the Manweersmalls underground...
               where they belong.
    Exhumor: Yes, it won't be long now.

               in running you down!

    Sparx: He's got a name you know.
    Spyro: Yes, my name is Spyro... and you must be Terrador.
    Terrador: Yes, yes I am, and I must say I never thought I'd live to meet you,
              Spyro.
    Sparx: Look, Iíd love to sit here and hug everybody and chit chat,
    Sparx: but how Ďbout we leave before the volcano blows us up?
    Terrador: You're right.
    Terrador: I've got to tell the others what Cynder is up to.
    Sparx: Letís go. Iím right behind you. Actually, Iím right in front of you.
    Terrador: Run...
    Sparx: Look, when the guy says run, I think he knows something!
    Terrador: Go, Spyro! Fly like you've never flown before! I'll go back to the

              face Cynder yet.

    Spyro: It's just that the sight of Cynder so close, just... just...
    Sparx: ... made your heart stop? Put ice in your veins? Scared the crud out of
           you?
    Spyro: Yeah, something like that.
    Terrador: All warriors feel fear at one time or another, Spyro. There is no
              shame in that.
    Volteer: Yes, it's a proven scientific fact that the quotient between
             adrenaline and trepidation...
    Cyril: Volteer, please, I believe our good friend here was trying to make a
           point.
    Terrador: Thank you, Cyril.
    Terrador: What I was going to say is that all warriors feel fear, Spyro, but
              only the most valiant among us can face that fear... and master it.
    Terrador: From what I saw of you on Munitions Forge, you are one such warrior.
    Terrador: Young dragon, now is the time to complete your training... now is the
              time to face your fear.
    Terrador: Come.
    Sparx: Am I the only one still petrified?
    
    
    
    Terrador: You've done well, Spyro.
    Cyril: Yes, yes, pat on the back, good going, all that other rubbish, but we've
           got to get moving here.
    Volteer: Cyril is terribly obnoxious but in this case he happens to be right,
             Terrador.
    Volteer: Ignitus is the final piece to Cynder's puzzle.
    Volteer: If that last crystal is powered, the portal will open and we'll all be
             done for.
    Terrador: I know, I know.
    Terrador: When I was on Munitions Forge,
    Terrador: I overheard the Conductor say that Cynder's final preparations would
              take place at her lair,
    Terrador: where she lives in solitude among the clouds and the towers.
    Terrador: I am certain that's where she's taken Ignitus.
    Spyro: We have to go... come on.
    Terrador: I'd give anything to go with you, young warrior, but that crystal
              sapped the last of my will.
    Terrador: I fear my fighting days are over.
    Volteer: Every generation must pass the torch to the next, Terrador. Our time
             is done.
    Cyril: Yes, it is Spyro's time to shine.
    Cyril: Now go to it, young dragon!
    Spyro: Yes sir!
    Sparx: Wow, you guys make even me wanna face Cynder.
    Sparx: Did I say that out loud?

    Terrador: A dark, foreboding place in which Cynder broods and skulks and plans
              her next assault.
    Terrador: You must make your way to her fortress, where I'm sure Ignitus is
              being held.
    Sparx: Next time I say that I want to face Cynder, why donít you go ahead and
           punch me in the mouth.
    Spyro: No problem.

    Sparx: Her architect musta been a beauty.
    
    
    
    Sparx: I still don't like it.

           smaller... a lot smaller.

           smarter.
    Ignitus: Spyro... destroy the crystal... quickly...
    Spyro: Let's get him out of here before Cynder gets back!
    Cynder: If only life were that easy, little one.
    Sparx: S-s-s-s-s-s-so... b-b-b-b-b-big...
    Cynder: Time you learned how complicated life can be.
    Ignitus: Run, Spyro... save yourself.
    Spyro: Not this time. This time I fight.
    Cynder: Ha ha ha ha ha... Bring it!
    Sparx: um... Spyro.
    
    
    
    Cynder: It is so sad it must end this way.
    Cynder: Now... Where was I?
    Sparx: Does she ever use doors?
    Spyro: There was something in her eyes, Ignitus... something familiar.
    Ignitus: There should be, Spyro.
    Ignitus: You and Cynder share more than you know.
    Ignitus: It's time I told you the truth...
    Ignitus: ... all of it.
    Ignitus: You see, after I took your egg to the Silver River, I returned to the
             Grotto to find utter chaos.
    Ignitus: The other Guardians had been overrun,
    Ignitus: and all the other eggs had been smashed by the Dark Master's forces...
             all except one...
    Ignitus: You see, the Dark Master was torn.
    Ignitus: He wanted to destroy all the eggs to prevent the birth of the purple
             dragon
    Ignitus: ... but he also needed a dragon.
    Spyro: Why would he need a dragon?
    Ignitus: Because, Spyro,
    Ignitus: only one born in the Year of the Dragon could open the portal that
             served as the Dark Master's prison.
    Spyro: Cynder?
    Ignitus: I'm afraid so.
    Spyro: But if we come from the same place, why is she so, so... ?
    Sparx: Evil? Monstrous? Big? Sexy? Oops, did I just say that?
    Ignitus: Because, Spyro, after the night of the raid,
    Ignitus: she was corrupted by the Dark Master's poisonous powers
    Ignitus: ... twisted by his evil lore.
    Ignitus: She's become the Dark Master's monster.
    Spyro: But why? What does this Dark Master want?
    Ignitus: He wants to be freed from the portal of Convexity
    Ignitus: ... to wreak havoc across the realms.
    Ignitus: And if Cynder gets there, he just might succeed.
    Ignitus: I'm afraid we might be too late.
    Spyro: No, I refuse to give up... I'm going to stop Cynder and the Dark
           Master.
    Sparx: Wait you, you heard the Dragon, Spyro. He said, too late. Weíll get him
           next time.
    Sparx: Come on, champ, you did a great job and letís... letís take five.
    Spyro: No! I'm ready... now!
    Ignitus: Okay, okay, Spyro, you're right.
    Ignitus: At the very least, you have to try.
    Ignitus: If the Dark Master escapes, a shadow will fall over the land, and who
             knows what will happen then.
    Ignitus: May the Ancestors look after you. May they look after us all.

    Ignitus: Convexity acts as an airlock between our world and the Dark Realms
             beyond.
    Ignitus: You must stop Cynder before she inserts the final crystal and
             activates the portal,
    Ignitus: freeing the Dark Master.
    Sparx: Now... I've seen everything.
    Spyro: Yeah, if we don't hurry, I have a feeling you're going to see a whole
           lot more. Come on.

    Cynder: My Master returns.
    Spyro: We're too late!
    Cynder: Hmmmm! Persistent little fella, aren't you?
    Cynder: This is where it really ends.
    Spyro: Bring it!
    Cynder: No mercy this time.
    Sparx: I can't watch this.
    
    
    
    Spyro: She is just like me.
    Sparx: Dude, we've got to get out of here... NOW!
    Spyro: I can't leave her behind... I've got to save her.
    Sparx: What? Save the beast that's been trying to kill us?
    Spyro: That wasn't her fault... she was being used by the Dark Master!
    Spyro: Now we can go!
    Sparx: I'm right behind you buddy.
    Sparx: Mommy? Fluff my pillow?
    Ignitus: Feeling better, Spyro?
    Spyro: Not really, Ignitus.
    Spyro: That battle drained every last bit of my strength. I can hardly even
           lift my head.
    Ignitus: Yes, it will take some time for your powers to return.
    Ignitus: But they will in time, young dragon. They will in time.
    Ignitus: Cynder, ever since I failed the night of the raid, I've dreamed of
             this day.
    Volteer: It wasn't just you, Ignitus. We all failed.
    Ignitus: Be that as it may... we're together again now... thanks to Spyro.
    Ignitus: Well done, young dragon.
    Spyro: Thanks, Ignitus, but we still don't know what's happened to the Dark
           Master...
    Terrador: No matter, Spyro. There will be time to talk of the Dark Master
              later.
    Terrador: Now it's time to be grateful for your success.
    Sparx: His success? What about me?
    Sparx: Just because a bunch of weird stuff doesn't come flying out of my
           mouth,
    Sparx: doesn't mean that I didn't help, ya know!
    Spyro: You were a big help Sparx. No doubt about it.
    Spyro: But just for the record... a lot of weird stuff does come out of that
           little mouth of yours.
    Sparx: And what the heck is that supposed to mean?
    Sparx: You know, I don't need this. I could have stayed with the...
    Sparx: Llama people, whatever, where I was appreciated, but no.
    Sparx: No. I decided to help the poor helpless dragons rid the world of evil.
    Sparx: What a mistake that was because I get no thanks, no respect, no love, no
           credit...
    Ignitus: My goodness... and I thought Volteer talked a lot.
    Sparx: I left home too, you know. Iím a little guy. Yeah, thatís right.
    Sparx: Maybe you havenít noticed, but things are a lot bigger to me than they
           are to you.
    Sparx: And did I back away? Nah, nah, nah. Why? Because I've got moxy, I'm a
           tough cookie, I've got class...
    Sparx: I've got fro... (cough) I got a little frog in my throat.
    Sparx: ... as I was saying, on Tall Plains they knew a good thing when they saw
           it
    Sparx: ... they recognized the value of a quality dragonfly like me...
    Sparx: but here I get nothing... not even a thanks, hey, how are ya doing,
           good, let me buy you a drink.
    Sparx: I should go back to the swamp... mom'll make it all good... Mommy always
           does.
    
    
    
    Cynder: See anything, Spyro?
    Spyro: No, but I've got a bad feeling.
    Cynder: Me too.

    Elijah Wood: And I think whatís really great about this game and what Iím
                 excited about
    Elijah Wood: in regards to this game is that itís sort of telling the story of
                 Spyro from the beginning.
    Elijah Wood: Heís actually a small purple dragon that is raised by
                 dragonflies.
    Elijah Wood: He doesnít realize heís a dragon.
    Elijah Wood: And within the story, as the story progresses,
    Elijah Wood: he learns of his true self, where he comes from...
    Elijah Wood: you know that there are these Elders, these kind of guardian,
    Elijah Wood: giant dragons and that heís one of this ilk
    Elijah Wood: and throughout the game he starts to learn more about what heís
                 capable of as well.
    Elijah Wood: The significance of being a purple dragon is something special...
    Elijah Wood: the powers that come along with that
    Elijah Wood: and whatís really cool is as a player I think,
    Elijah Wood: is that you get to learn these different attributes throughout and
                 use them in different ways,
    Elijah Wood: such as breathing fire which is kind of typical to dragons or
    Elijah Wood: breathing ice or electricity and these things just kind of come
                 throughout the game and
    Elijah Wood: itís a really interesting story based game that I think is quite
                 immersive which is cool.
    Elijah Wood: If I could leave with one of Spyroís powers, what could it be?
    Elijah Wood: Itís tough, theyíre all pretty good,
    Elijah Wood: but the old standby, the ability to fly...
    Elijah Wood: you know thatís a big deal.
    Elijah Wood: Breathing fire... okay, that could be...
    Elijah Wood: I mean I could really run into some trouble that.
    Elijah Wood: You know, can you lessen the amount of fire that youíre
                 breathing?
    Elijah Wood: What if you only intend to like,
    Elijah Wood: I donít know, light a candle for instance, but then you light up
                 your couch?
    Elijah Wood: You know, that could be really problematic.
    Elijah Wood: Electricity could be good because you could probably turn,
    Elijah Wood: like infuse something with power,
    Elijah Wood: but then how do you know like how much power to infuse it with?
    Elijah Wood: Like how many amps it takes and what if you go overboard
    Elijah Wood: and then you burn out all of your electricity? Thatíd be bad.
    Elijah Wood: Ice could be good, but then I could see that being extremely
                 dangerous as well.
    Elijah Wood: I mean all of these things I think youíd have to learn how to
                 regulate because you could
    Elijah Wood: freeze yourself, you could...
    Elijah Wood: I donít know, I think thereís a lot of...
    Elijah Wood: flying the safest. Iíll go with flying.
    Elijah Wood: I mean heís a character that sort of starts out
    Elijah Wood: entering into a world that heís unfamiliar with
    Elijah Wood: and taking aboard something that is kind of quite massive.
    Elijah Wood: Itís not dissimilar from a journey that Iíd taken before,
    Elijah Wood: as someone who is embarking on something that is sort of
    Elijah Wood: bigger than they could conceive of or bigger than them.
    Elijah Wood: I came in to do this session today and I was told that...
    Elijah Wood: I didnít know who the rest of the cast were.
    Elijah Wood: I came in and I was told that Gary Oldman did the voice of
                 Ignitus,
    Elijah Wood: which blows my mind. I mean heís one of my favorite actors of all
                 time...
    Elijah Wood: a true, true chameleon, someone that you canít really peg.
    Elijah Wood: Has done every kind of voice, character imaginable...
    Elijah Wood: I mean that my time for heroics is past,
    Elijah Wood: but with your help we might be able to beat Cynder.
    Elijah Wood: I canít Ignitus. I just learned what I am.
    Elijah Wood: You can, Spyro, you can.
    Elijah Wood: You are a purple dragon... a very special creature.
    Elijah Wood: Itís a pleasure to be associated with him because Iím such a huge
                 fan
    Elijah Wood: and David Spade as Sparx as well.
    Elijah Wood: Iíve met David a couple of times and heís a really sweet guy
    Elijah Wood: and really funny and for this kind of character,
    Elijah Wood: itís so important to have someone thatís sort of biting and
                 sarcastic and funny.
    Elijah Wood: Sparx is definitely all those things and David Spadeís perfect for
                 that.
    Elijah Wood: Spyro, can you hear me? You okay buddy?
    Elijah Wood: Hey listen, forget about those cracks I made about your fatness
                 and your being purple and stupid and fat.
    Elijah Wood: Iím very much, as a gamer, Iím very much attracted to
    Elijah Wood: a game that includes a great story that I can sink my teeth
                 into...
    Elijah Wood: that will allow me to kind of continue to focus on the progress of
                 the game and lead to other games.
    Elijah Wood: My favorite games are story based games and if the storyís good
    Elijah Wood: and the actual game play is fun than thatís all you need really.
