Want to See an Animated Dragon's Lair Movie?

To a kid drinking in entire worlds of 8bit graphics in arcades across Brooklyn, the amazing animation fueling the action of Dragon's Lair was mindblowing. The game had a fairly dark sense of humor (and some adult art in regards to the heroine), setting it apart from cartoons we'd see on TV and in movies, cementing fond memories of gameplay and leaving behind legions of loyal fans who would go on to make action figures, art and cosplay characters, always there to tell the creators we would never forget. Welp...I think it finally sank in! 

Don Bluth and Gary Goldman are coming together once again to bring the classic arcade game Dragon's Lair to the big screen. We are seeking your help to create a pitch to make Dragon’s Lair, the Movie through a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign. Dragon's Lair continues to be loved by millions around the world since 1983, and fans have been waiting patiently to see Dirk and Daphne at it again. Join us in this adventure as we prepare to bring Dragon's Lair to a new generation. 
We’ve worked on '20' successful animation motion pictures, some of them “iconic”, The Secret of NIMH, An American Tail, The Land Before Time, All Dogs Go To Heaven and Anastasia to name a few. It’s ironic that the project that has given us the greatest recognition is actually that video arcade game known as Dragon’s Lair, created back in the early 1980s. The game has an extremely loyal fan base - now estimated to be in the millions and with each generation it has picked up even more fans. And after 30 years, the game continues to sell as an app for smart phones, smart tablets and personal computers. Fans have been begging us to do a major motion picture. Just like Dirk the Daring, a character that just won’t die, the game marches on - it’s time to make the movie!"
For die hard fans, it's the chance to get your hands on pins, hats, signed posters and even a killer T Shirt featuring a skeletal Dirk and the words "Game Over"! Jump over to the Dragnon's Lair Kickstarter and pick your pledge level!
