Production[edit]

Development[edit]

In the 1980s a film version of Dragon's Lair was planned, with Alan Dean Foster involved in shaping the story. The project fell apart due to low interest from other studios.[1] As of 2012,[2] Don Bluth and Gary Goldman were seeking funding for a film version of Dragon's Lair.[3][4] On October 26, 2015, Bluth and Goldman started a Kickstarter campaign to create a teaser for a feature-length Dragon's Lair prequel film, their first feature film since Titan A.E.[5] The Kickstarter funding was canceled when not enough funds were made close to the deadline, but an Indiegogo page for the project was created in its place.[6][7][8][9] In November 2017, Bluth and Goldman have announced that the film will provide more backstory for Dirk and Daphne and that Daphne will show that she is not a "blonde airhead".[10][11]

Casting[edit]

On March 27, 2020, development restarted with Ryan Reynolds entering talks to star in the film as Dirk the Daring.[12][13] After a year of negotiations, Netflix secured the worldwide distribution rights,[14] with Don Bluth, Gary Goldman, Jon Pomeroy, Roy Lee, Trevor Engelson and Reynolds serving as producers.[15]

Writing[edit]

In March 2020, Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman were hired to write the script.[16]
