We all know that Earth’s government is run by a shadowy cabal of shapeshifting lizard people called The Grand Reptilian Council. Now production company Truce Films has made a deal to create a sponsored documentary called Hail Draconis, disguised as an animated series.

We believe this is an ironic tribute to their skill in giving us Trump, Johnson, Morrison, Bolsonaro and Duterte at the same time.
