Development Pitch

My story is all about a fun loving dragon named Hubert who ended up in this beautiful forest and was rescued by 2 amazing unicorns who surprised Hubert of their beauty. They were not just friends to him as they now became family to Hubert. Hubert loves the environment and has special songs he sings in the day and at night and this leaves him very positive throughout his life. He is very loving and friendly and changes colors many times . Hubert does not know why he changes colors but he feels good about it. When he needs to feel strong to help out friends in trouble, he changes to blue, and when he is excited and very happy his color goes to purple. I can see this book of mine becoming a movie for either TV or theater. Watching Hubert skipping along and helping all that he can is so fun loving. With all the characters in this manuscript of mine it is sweet to watch and read. I also have many extra pictures plus I am also about to publish another sweet 2nd book about Hubert the Miniature Dragon. I was told by many how they felt this book of mine would be an amazing animated movie or TV show! I am open for any discussions for anyone who is interested in making this book a movie!

Accuracy of Book Profile

Yes, the book profile accurately reflects the book.

Draw of Story

This a children's book about a purple dragon. This has already been done with Barney and I was interested if it would be similar or different.

Possible Drawbacks

The book seems to be broken down into individual stories. The stories are not well rounded. It is targeted for a very young age group but the stories are extremely simple. Hubert finds someone in need and helps, then it's over. As a book, it doesn't have an ending. It is the same story repeated.

Use of Special Effects

THE STORY RELIES HEAVILY ON SPECIAL EFFECTS

Primary Hook of Story

The hook is that a purple, color changing dinosaur helps out his animal friends. The color changing aspect of the dinosaur as it is associated with his feelings is interesting but is not explained thoroughly in the story.

Fanbase Potential

This could have a large fanbase because a purple dinosaur has worked before.

Awards Potential

This does not have awards potential. It is a children's book that is very simplistic with few lessons for growing children.

Envisioned Budget

MEDIUM BUDGET

What’s New About the Story

The story isn't original. A purple dinosaur children's story has been done and this is not as interesting as that. The story could be developed more. This would not hold children's interest.

Lead Characters

The lead character is a purple dinosaur that helps out his friends. He changes colors and was raised by unicorns. It is a good children story character but not very unique.

Uniqueness of Story

This is an average story that needs more development.

Possible Formats

TV Series - Streaming, TV Series - Network, TV Series - Cable

Analyst Recommendation

WORK IN PROGRESS

Justification

While the story has many positive points, it has room for improvement (see possible paths below). If you can't change the story at this point, my suggestion is using your notes as a guide to highlight the best aspects of it when taking the next steps, either putting a pitch page together, a treatment, or a presentation.

Tips for Improvement

This would be a consider if Hubert's world is developed. There is nothing to stimulate the imagination besides that he is a dinosaur. It has been done before and needs something more unique to differentiate this from past iterations. His unicorn family and color changing should be explained in the beginning and tied in to the other stories.
