Dragon Movies and Series

Recommended Posts

Ok, I checked and couldn't find a topic where fans can discuss movies and series, animated or live-action, where dragons play an important or at least a memorable role.

 

I've checked out quite a few movies/series and my favorite one is 'The Flight of Dragons' - this is an old cartoon, made back in 1982, so probably not many of you have seen it, but it's a great fantasy movie that actually has dragons as main characters and takes its time to explain about dragon flight and how dragons of their world can breathe fire, something I've not seen anywhere else. I'd definitely recommend it to any dragon or fantasy fan. <3

 

So, have you got a favorite dragon movie/series you'd like to recommend to others? smile.gif

Haven't seen How To Train Your Dragons [not in the movies anymore sad.gif ] but the books were good.

 

I really liked Eragon though x'3

Na Zha Riots The Seas was a neat movie about a boy who faces the Dragon King and his brothers. It was animated it 1979, I think.

 

I also like Dragonheart and Spirited Away very much (as well as quite a few others listed in the first post).

Dragonheart is definitely my favorite one. Randomly saw Dragonheart 1 & 2 bundled together in the bargain bin at Shopko, bought it on a whim. Very glad i did.

Puff the Magic Dragon is nowhere to be found on the lists. Totally remember my class watching that in prep after lunch. xP

 

Plus the pink dragon in Shrek has a reasonable sized role, if I recall correctly.

Added the new series and movies, thanks everyone! (the Shrek series was already on the animated movies list though ^^)

 

After I googled 'Na Zha Riots The Seas' I immediately remembered watching this movie - I liked it as well, a very good adventure story. ^^

How to Train Your Dragon, Mulan, and Dragonheart were all good.

 

Also, Pete's Dragon. ;~;

Dragon Tales!

American Dragon: Jake Long was better than I expected.

I really liked both Dragonheart movies, Merlin, Reign of Fire, How to Train Your Dragon and Spirited Away. Record of Lodoss War is so my favorite! xd.png Eragon was a terrible movie, though.

 

There's also a dragon in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two. I don't know if you'd count this or not, but there was a dragon in an episode of Stargate SG-1(it was memorable to me anyway). Just thought I'd mention it. xd.png

Oh, sorry! I totally overlooked that. Or I may have been too distracted by the word 'Quadriology' to notice the Shrek that came before it. That word makes me want to giggle. :P

Probably because I misspelled it - it's 'quadrilogy'. tongue.gif Just fixed and added the correct word. ^^

I am truly disappointed by the lack of dragons only movies (no people) but the best one I have ever seen is most definitly How to Train Your Dragon. Most others have dragons playing a secondary role or they are horrible evil monsters to be killed at all costs...

@ rampaging wyvern

Yes, I agree, there aren't really all that many films that focus on dragons (being dragon only or just having a dragon play an important role). This is one of the reasons I've started this thread - I've run out of dragon movies/series to watch and I wanted a place where fans can discuss their favorite films and what they love about them. ^^

 

I've seen How Train Your Dragon and I liked it too - I'll have to rewatch it again one of these days (I've only seen it in cam version, it's time to move on to HD tongue.gif)

 

@ Jedi40

Thanks, added Narnia, the animated Hobbit is already on the list (unless it's a different version from the 1977 Rankin/Bass studio one - in that case I'd be happy to add it as well) and I added the Hobbit 2012 as well, because without a doubt, Smaug is going to be fantastic in the upcoming movies. :3

 

@ Raikielia

I've hunted down the SG episode with the dragon quest - guess what I'll be watching tonight? wink.gif I've watched the Eragon movie before reading the book and it hasn't made a particularly big impression on me. After reading the book, I saw just how much story was left out and was impressed even less. xd.png

Adventures of a Teenage Dragonslayer was a pretty good movie. It's kinda old so the special effects are a little lame, but I enjoyed it. It's a live-action movie about a group of three friends who realize that their favorite trading card game is real, and that there's an evil dragon out to get them. There's also a good dragon, but he doesn't make an appearance until the end.

Sweet, I've never heard of this movie, but now I'll check it out for sure - it's been added to the list. Thanks HawktalonOfRiverClan!

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (we can't forget little Norbert)

This is one I found...D-Wars. Absolute rubbish, terrible acting etc, but the Chinese dragon at the end is beautiful. Don't get the DVD, YouTube ' D-wars Final Fight' and pick the one entitled ' Dragon Wars - the fight of Imoogi and Buraki' Amazing dragon at the end, and the effects are amazing considering the budget they were on.

@ Jedi40

Of course, how could I forget Norbert! Thanks, added both new entries. smile.gif

 

@ rampaging wyvern

And another entry for the list - it's slowly but steadily growing. Thanks! ^^ You know, I think I actually saw this movie, but I can't remember at all what it was about. tongue.gif Love the clip however, the dragons are very well done.

I don't know if YouTube shorts apply, but search 'Ritterschlag'. Very unexpected ending xd.png It's a nice German animated short, following a dragon father trying to teach his son the trick of knocking knights off a bridge.
