Dragon's Lair is an upcoming American traditionally animated dark fantasy adventure film directed by Don Bluth and Gary Goldman, based on their own screenplay. The film will be an adaptation of Don Bluth's and Rick Dyer's 1983 video game of the same name. The film is expected to be released on May 1, 2020 by 20th Century Fox in the United States and Universal Pictures in other territories.
Development[edit | edit source]
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. As of 2012[update], Don Bluth and Gary Goldman were seeking funding for a film version of Dragon's Lair. On October 26, 2015, Bluth and Goldman started a Kickstarter campaign to create a teaser for an animated feature-length Dragon's Lair prequel film, their first feature film since Titan A.E. 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. On December 14, 2015, the Indiegogo campaign reached its goal of $250,000 to produce a teaser, 14 days after the campaign launched, and got more than twice the budget on January 16, 2016. 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". As of June 2016[update], the total exceeded $731,172. In November 2017, Bluth and Goldman confirmed production was underway.
