On Order



Buzz Lightyear of Star Command director Tad Stones teams with Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and Hellboy director Guillermo del Toro to follow the further adventures of the wisecracking demon who fights for the powers of light in the mortal realm. A folklore professor has become possessed by the ancient Japanese demons of Thunder and Lightning, and the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense has dispatched an experienced team of professionals to investigate. As Hellboy discovers a cursed samurai sword that transports him to a feudal supernatural dimension inhabited by malevolent ghosts and vicious monsters, Liz and Abe Sapien face off against a powerful and very angry dragon. In order to slay the giant beast, Liz and Abe are going to need the help of the Right Hand of Doom, but before he can help his friends, Hellboy will have to defeat two of the most ferocious spirits ever to unleash their wrath on man. It's not going to be an easy fight, and before the battle is over, Hellboy will find out just how vengeful the legendary duo of Thunder and Lightning can truly be. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
