    DreamWorld Part 4

    DreamWorld Part 4

    Part 4:
    In Dreamworld's gripping finale, our story reaches its conclusion with the epic battle between the Redeemers and The Sleeper's army, both vying for control of the all-powerful golden egg. As the conflict unfolds, the fate of Earth and Dreamworld hangs in the balance. Will both realms be restored? And if so, will Cassidy find his way back home to his family?
    About DreamWorld
    "Dreamworld" transports us to a place far beyond imagination, where the fanciful inhabitants of bedtime stories roam free behind magic barriers. But when grief-stricken Cassidy arrives via Father Time’s whims, he discovers this wonderland in peril. The villainous Sleeper has shaken Dreamworld from its slumber after the untimely death of Princess Marigold, imposing a cruel new order devoid of “happily ever after.”
    Yet rebel Jack and his motley crew of fairy tale renegades still fight to restore their realm’s happily-ever-afters. These valiant “Redeemers” - Red Riding Hood’s feisty granddaughter Scarlett, lovesick ex-pirate Bluebeard, towering gentle giant Mastodon - join Cassidy on his time-twisting quest. Fantasy and reality collide as enemies become allies, innocence turns to experience, and make-believe becomes life or death.
    Layering postmodern wit atop old world sublimity, “Dreamworld” casts ageless characters in a newly complex light. The big bad wolf howls with regret, Cinderella asserts her dignity under oppression, and the skin-deep hero discovers his commanding heart. By making fantasy painfully real, the creator renews its power to inspire hope.
    Sword fights and sorcery abound on this spirited cinematic adventure, clearly crafted with epic spectacle in mind. Yet swashbuckling showmanship belies sensitivity. When forces of evil shatter to reveal frightened souls, when a sound heart guides a wayward giant home, “Dreamworld” transcends sensation to find timeless truth. We all must wake up and battle dragons, but castles await those brave enough to dream.
