Don Bluth & Gary Goldman come together to bring the classic game Dragon's Lair to the big screen. Before being able to create a full length feature file, the famous animators needed funds in order to create a trailer. The trailer would be used to pitch the big studios, so they could get more money. In order to raise funds, Bluth and Goldman first launched a campaign on Kickstarter, but cancelled the project when it was short of it's goal (kickstarter only lets you keep the money if you meet your goal). A few months later, they launched a campaign on Indiegogo, where they could set up a “flexible funding” campaign that would allow them to keep whatever amount people donated, even if they didn’t reach their goal. On January 16, 2016, they raised $607,958 (over 2x what they asked for). Once again, it is important to note that this money will be used for the creation of a trailer. They estimate a full length feature film will cost around $70 million [according to GameSpot].

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.
