Dragon's Lair is coming to Netflix as a live-action movie starring Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds is also a producer on the project which doesn’t have a release date at this time.
Bluth, who has produced and directed countless animated films over the years including The Secret of NIMH, All Dogs Go To Heaven and An American Tail, partnered with long-time collaborator Gary Goldman on a Kickstarter for an animated Dragon's Lair film back in 2015. The goal was to raise $250,000 to produce a teaser for the movie, but the Kickstarter didn’t raise the necessary funds. They moved the project to Indiegogo where it eventually earned twice that amount.
Now Netflix, after a year of negotiations, is set to produce and release the movie as live-action rather than animated.
When Dragon's Lair was at the height of it's popularity in the early 80's, some storyboards were penned for a Dragon's Lair movie. However, the movie was never developed. For storyboards from the 1980s, click an image below. Note: these are NOT storyboards for the new movie that they are creating.
