OK. So it's been one of the worst kept secrets over the past few months that there's an animated Dragonlance movie in the works. Margaret and Tracy have been dropping hints left right and centre, various people have picked up bits and pieces along the way, and Lucy Lawless (who's voicing the character of Goldmoon) jumped the gun on the official announcement by spilling the beans to her fan club.
Regulars to the DLMS might wonder why there hasn't been any news of the speculation about this movie posted on the site over recent months. This is because we've been very kindly asked by the film's producers to become the official outlet for all the news on the movie as it moves towards a commercial release in autumn 2007! So over the coming months we'll be able to bring you the full inside word on how the movie is coming together. Stay tuned.
Anyway, enough about us. What about the movie? Well, as we mentioned, an animated Dragonlance movie has been in pre-production for most of this year. The film is based on the first book in the Chronicles series, "Dragons of Autumn Twilight". The director is comics and TV animation veteran, Will Meugniot, and the screenplay has been adapted by George Strayton with plenty of involvement from Margaret and Tracy. Check out the new The Movie section for the full details as they presently stand.
