As the egg hatches, Eragon becomes the dragon's rider, and together they embark on a journey to defeat the evil King Galbatorix who rules the land with an iron fist. Along the way, they meet numerous characters, including the wise Brom (Jeremy Irons), who teaches Eragon how to become a Dragon Rider, and the beautiful warrior princess, Arya (Sienna Guillory).

Eragon quickly learns that his newfound powers come with a great responsibility. As a Dragon Rider, he must help restore justice and peace to the land of Alagaesia. But this is not an easy task, as Galbatorix has an army of powerful and dangerous Magicians, known as Shade, at his disposal.
