If you are looking for fast, high-quality and stable media streams on Kodi, The Magic Dragon is definitely your go-to addon. The Magic Dragon features a vast collection of movies, TV shows, Misc Episodes, Kids videos, Music, Radio, Sports, Entertainment, etc. and handy Real-Debrid authorization & integration. On this page, I'll show you the detailed guide on how to install the latest working The Magic Dragon on Kodi.
I'll demonstrate the installation on Kodi Nexus 20.2, this installation guide applies to all compatible devices including Amazon Firestick, Fire TV, Android & iOS, Mac, Android TV, Android Boxes, etc.
Important update:The Magic Dragon addon version 1.39 is updated and available from EzzerMacs Wizard Repository, the new official host repo of The Magic Dragon addon.
However, The Magic Dragon addon has lost support for its most sections, like Catch Up TV section as they claimed before. The Magic Dragon developer team now only formally maintains the New Releases section as a sideline. If you find The Magic Dragon not working, fails to launch or say error check the log, you're advised to try the developer's recommendation Asgard, or see our best Kodi addons list for tons of working alternatives.
Magic Dragon is one of the best Kodi addons, dedicated to providing all kinds of content in one place. It features mainly rich media inventory and navigable categories and presents steady, fast and high-quality streams for movies, Catch Up TV, Documentary, People Watching, New Screeners, New Movie Releases, Cams/HDTS Releases, 1 Click HD torrents, etc.
Soon to be a Real-Debrid only addon, The Magic Dragon has a much easier Real-Debrid integration approach than most popular Kodi addons like The Crew, Venom, Exodus Redux, Covenant, etc. From its Real-Debrid Authorization section, one can easily attach Real-Debrid URL resolvers to The Magic Dragon.
Add-on name: The Magic Dragon
Repo Name: ***Diamond Build Repo (Primary Server, Main Repo)***
