Ages ago, when I was a younger (around 2010-2015), I watched a 3D animated movie where the world was entirely sky (blue with clouds and stuff). It was populated with little planets of varying size where people lived and farmed, and seemed feudal/medieval. I remember the only way to get from A to B was bridges or some other way?

The main plot was something to do with the world falling apart (planets and their buildings disintegrating and floating destroyed through the sky). This blind king/lord met the characters to task them with stopping it at the beginning. By the end, when they had succeeded, he wasn't blind anymore and didn't remember who they were.

The movie has this scrawny leader character, a big strong one, and a weird dog thing (I think it breathed fire?). Somewhere along the way, a girl joined them as well. I remember the leader character berating the strong one at the beginning and saying the dog thing was cooler than him, if that helps.

I think towards the climax, they all had a falling out, and then the most memorable scene of the movie happened when this huge cathedral was falling apart, flying across the sky during a thunderstorm.

I do believe it was a kids' movie.

Edit: The language was English.

  • The language was English, and I think my dad brought it home on a DVD or we watched it on our network TV box

The world has become a vast arrangement of floating islands of varying sizes and shapes. This dizzy universe is populated with rogues, peasants, and petty lords. Their main concerns are for survival, for this world has become plagued with hungry creatures, who are wreaking havoc, known as dragons.

Lian-Chu and Gwizdo are two dragon hunters, but they are a long way from being among the best. Lian Chu is a hulking brute with the heart of gold, and Gwizdo is an avaricious, high-strung young man with a talent for scams. Their private dream is to own a farm where they can relax and raise sheep.

A few floating islands away, there is a fortress owned by Lord Arnold. The lord has a problem. He has been living in fear of the return of World Eater, a monstrous dragon that rises every twenty years to spread terror and destruction. Nobody has been able to conquer him. And nobody has ever returned alive or sane enough to tell the tale. Lord Arnold's niece Zoe has decided to take matters into her own hands, and she finds Lian-Chu and Gwizdo to help her. She is convinced that they are the heroes of her dreams, and she goes with them to the end of the earth for a fantastic and dangerous adventure.
