so the story changes every time i think about it. my girlfriend has advised me to take a step back from the development and look at some original disney cartoons. hopefully a different approach will help to inspire the story.
so i looked at ferdinand the bull and the reluctant dragon.
i really enjoyed these cartoons, the thing that struck me the most was the contradiction in the characters personality with its physicality. this seems to be a good place to start, back to the drawing board.
