My Father’s Dragon[1] is an upcoming Irish-American 2D animated film directed by Nora Twomey.[1] It is based on the 1948 children's novel of the same name by Ruth Stiles Gannett.[1] Co-produced by Netflix Animation, Cartoon Saloon, Mockingbird Pictures and Parallel Films, the film is scheduled for a 2021 premiere on Netflix.[2][3]


Runaway Elmer Elevator searches for a captive dragon on Wild Island and finds much more than he could ever have anticipated.


In November 2018, Netflix announced an adaptation of My Father's Dragon, with Nora Twomey directing from a script Meg LeFauve wrote from a story by LeFauve and John Morgan, who are producing the film along with Tomm Moore, Bonnie Curtis, Paul Young, Julie Lynn, Alan Moloney, Ruth Coady, and Gerry Shirren.[4]


On November 6, 2018, Netflix announced that the film will be released in 2021.[4] On January 14, 2021, Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos revealed that the film's release could be moved to "2022 or later", to meet Netflix's criteria of releasing six animated features per year.[5]
