At long last, the classic video game Dragon's Lair has a chance to be made into a movie...with your help! Creators Don Bluth and Gary Goldman are seeking your help to create a pitch to turn Dragon’s Lair into a feature-length movie through a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign. Watch this short video and read the official description below for details on the project:
Dragon's Lair continues to be loved by millions around the world since 1983, and fans have been waiting patiently to see Dirk and Daphne at it again. Join us in this adventure as we prepare to bring Dragon's Lair to a new generation. We’ve worked on '20' successful animation motion pictures, some of them “iconic”, The Secret of NIMH, An American Tail, The Land Before Time, All Dogs Go To Heaven and Anastasia to name a few.' It’s ironic that the project that has given us the greatest recognition is actually that video arcade game known as Dragon’s Lair, created back in the early 1980s. The game has an extremely loyal fan base - now estimated to be in the millions and with each generation it has picked up even more fans. And after 30 years, the game continues to sell as an app for smart phones, smart tablets and personal computers. Fans have been begging us to do a major motion picture. Just like Dirk the Daring, a character that just won’t die, the game marches on - it’s time to make the movie!"
