Dragon’s Lair The Movie?!


Bluth confirms the film is still in the works! I personally get excited about seeing ANY traditionally animated film by The Bluth, let alone a Dragon’s Lair film! Awesome…

April 27, 2007 – (From IGN) — The new Blu-ray release of the interactive movie/game Dragon’s Lair features interviews with creators Don Bluth, Rick Dyer and Gary Goldman, during which the trio confirms that a Dragon’s Lair feature film is still in the works.

“We’ve had a completed script for over three years now and we’ve had some very positive meetings with the studios,” says Goldman. “It shouldn’t be done as a CG movie, it should be done as traditional animation like the original game. But traditional animation is in a sort of limbo.”

Goldman comments that he’s hopeful since Disney is restarting their traditional animation division, but says there’s a log jam of CG projects out there and people can’t afford to go to every one.

Goldman adds that Bluth “has boarded some of it already. It’s a funny, funny script. … The movie is actually a prequel. You’ll follow Dirk from birth until he becomes a knight.”

Dyer seems to hint that an “unusual dragon” first featured in the Dragon’s Lair comic books would appear in the movie. “This dragon has amazing powers,” Dyer reveals, at which point Bluth cautions Dyer not to give anything else away and the commentary ends.

    This is amazing.  I cannot wait.  Can Space Ace be far behind?  Sadly somehow I expect this to come out, be under-promoted, make poor box office and set back 2D animation for another decade.  Sigh.  BUT STILL EXCITED – I HOPE IM WRONG!
