Don Bluth Announces Dragon’s Lair: The Movie November 25, 2015Posted by Maniac in Game News.
Visionary director Don Bluth (Land Before Time, An American Tale, Titan A.E.) has officially announced that he is seeking to turn the beloved arcade game Dragon’s Lair into a feature-length film. The problem is they need your help to do it.
Bluth and his production company have been interested in making a feature-length Dragon’s Lair film but have been unable to secure proper funding for it. They fully intend to make this film using traditional 2D hand-drawn animation techniques (matching the style of the original games), and it seems like Hollywood is only interested in funding 3D animated projects, even when it isn’t appropriate (Peanuts anyone?). Because of that, the film is going to be funded via crowdsourcing.
Dragon’s Lair was one of the most groundbreaking arcade titles of its day, and having played it via recent ports on iPhone and Blu-Ray Disc, it holds a special place in my heart.
