Greetings, i am not sure if posting this information on our site is ok but i stumbled upon that one and thought that i had to share it with you

A Dragonlance movie is in the making! more info in the following URL

http://www.dragonlance-movie.com/

I always suspected that Jack Bauer was Raistlin

I believe the lesson was learned from the previous crap movie and the even crapiest sequel, this one gonna be a better.

After that a Forgotten Realms Movie perhaps?

Aye. Over the last couple of months, I've been posting previous updates about the DL movie in various scrolls -- in fact, since about the time it had been first announced.

I'll leave this scroll open for the time being -- just as a "easy reference source" for any new details released about the film. Though, let me just re-inforce the apparent "legal" issue with the DoAT trailer that's been floating around on YouTube. 'Tis my understanding that the illegal trailer should not be posted anywhere in any online communities. So please try to avoid including any links featuring the trailer, here at Candlekeep.

Now, Xena aka Lucy Lawless being Goldmoon - I cannot see how that fits the bill?!?!? She would be a perfect cast for Kiatara IMHO but Goldmoon? Now, I can only hope they will dye her hair blonde..........

Her voice... not her. Her voice would make a good Goldmoon if you just picture it in your head for a moment. Would make a good Kit too though.

The fact that it is animated gives me some hope. I don't like live action fantasy movies (yes, I do prefer the Bakshi version of the Rings). I will probably be disappointed, but there is a glimmer of optimism in my somewhere.

Hehe I used to be like that too. All you need to know is that Dragonlance is more or less 2 timelines. Basically the Heroes of the Lance (the original trilogies; Chronicles & Legends) and then what their children face many years later.

For the most part the Dragonlance novels are spin off novels of the Core novels. We get introduced to this supporting cast character, or some organization, we get the facts about them in the Core novel, but the spin off novel fills in the fluff.

Dragonlance stagnates in contrast to the Realms, which moves forward by a year or two every few real world years.


In any case, Dragons of Autumn Twilight is an excellent read if you're interested in Dragonlance at all.

Though I watched the D&D cartoon as a kid, Dragginglance was my first intro into D&D settings and TSR publications... I got all of the first five trilogies, and then the lack of forward progress made me bail on the setting. For a long time, unless it was Weis & Hickman doing the writing, authors only went backwards or sideways -- never forward.

Animated? What a shame. With films like Eragon getting solid movie releases, and not straight-to-DVD, why are we still waiting on a decent Dragonlance? I must admit to considering Eragon fantasy pablum, but the film was live-action with mildly competent actors and passable CG. If such a basic film appeals to the masses, why can't the rich and complex world and relationships of the Chronicles be given a serious shot? I've had high hopes for Dragonlance on the big screen ever since Peter Jackson opened the doorway. This is just bad news for me.

take what you can get. The quality seems good. If its on-par with some of Marvels recent direct to DVD animated films, it should be decent at least

The DVD is available for preorder:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000Y7U996?ie=UTF8&tag=trafficreport-20&linkCode=xm2&creativeASIN=B000Y7U996

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet and excite you... Books are full of the things that you don't get in real life - wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. - Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

Mmh, I have to agree here. I had hoped to see something more than that as well. If Dragonlance Chronicles would have similar sales today than what they had when it first came out and was popular it would have been not only one but 3 movies IMO. Only because it is not that popular anymore we see a DVD only and not a cinamatic movie.

Oui Akeri... je le jure: ça vaut vraiment la peine de voir ça en 3D... si t'est pas trop loin de Montréal, je suis sûr qu'il y a au moins une ou deux salles IMAX qui doivent présenter ce film en 3D. J'habite dans la région du grand Toronto, donc je l'ai vu à Mississauga, au cinéma suivant:

I did not intend to sound rude. My apologies for using my mother tongue in an attempt to help a fellow French Canadian in finding a theatre showing Beowulf in 3D.

PDK... We realise that. I believe Wooly was justing alluding to the [usually] "accepted" practice on English-speaking message boards where all users converse in the same language -- namely English. You're welcome to speak to Akeri in your mother tongue, however I would suggest that a Personal Message between the two of you would be more appropriate.

Not a bad idea at all.
