Product Description

Adventure rules - in this thrilling action epic follow-up to the original hit film, Dragonheart. When Geoff, an orphaned stable boy (Malcolm in the Middle's Chris Masterson), discovers Drake (the voice of Robby Benson), the world's last living dragon, he realizes that his dream of becoming a knight in shining armor can now come true. Together, they soon face challenges that turn them into heroes. But caught up in the excitement of their new lives, Geoff and Drake fail to see the hidden dangers that surround them. Conquering the enemy may take more than courageous exploits and brave may take everything they have.

If you haven't seen the original Dragonheart, never fear--this story doesn't have much to do with it. Geoffrey (Chris Masterson) is a stable boy at a monastery, with dreams of knighthood--dreams that seem out of reach until he discovers a young dragon living in the monastery's dungeon, a scaly but kindly faced fellow named Drake (voiced by Robby Benson). Unfortunately, the king of the realm has fallen under the spell of an evil adviser, who has plans for this dragon. Fortunately, an old Chinese man and his ward--a very attractive girl with a stunning kung-fu kick--have arrived to keep the dragon from harm. The story is straightforward and clearly aimed at a younger audience, with an uncontroversial moral about friendship. The special effects are capable and at times expressive. Dragonheart: A New Beginning is kid-friendly and will probably be kid-appealing. --Bret Fetzer

    Dragonheart is simply a fantastic movie. It has fantastic effects. Draco looks almost photoreal when he flys through the skys in sunlight. It is definutly a technological breakthrough. It could be easy to dismiss this movie as an effects romp but this movie has in my mind has one of if not the best fantasy storylines ever. Better then Lord of the Rings, better then Harry Potter. Dragonheart is the story of a knight named Boyan. He serves a young prince teaching him the old code of King Aurther hoping he will be a good king. When the boy is injured and dying he turns to a dragon to save him. When he does the boy becomes a tyrant. The result Boyan becomes a dragon slayer until meeting and befriending a dragon named Draco. They go on an adventure to save the kingdom and help Boyan discover the code of honer he once believed in. Sean Connarys voicework is excellent as is Dennis Quiads Boyan. All preformances are perfect. In this movie we get great effects, great story, great acting, great action, and some humor thrown in. On all levels it works. A classic. A masterpiece. It will make you believe.
    Then in 2000 some jerk decided to create a sequel. I won't give away the ending but it left no room for a sequel. Maybe if it was done right it could have been Okay but it is not done right at all. Dragonheart a New Beginning is a disaster. They took an immortal classic and turned it into a blow end kids flick. All the multilayered story and epic action sequences that I loved about the first Dragonheart is destroyed to make it for the peanut gallery. Four years of effects breakthroughs create a dragon named Drake who looks like a cartoon. The animation is a disaster. Its horrible. Universal obviously saw no need for any work to be done. He also has a very low voice quality. Nothing like the brilliant work Sean Connary did. Buy this and throw the second disc in the trash and enjoy the first classic for all its glory.

    Format: DVD
    If you're looking for something like the first movie you're going to be disappointed. This is a completely different story aimed at families with children with simple morals about friendship and deception. On it's own it's a good family movie with some good action scenes. Rona Figueroa's martial arts were immensely entertaining to my family. The film's climax was a surprise.
    Both of the film's protagonists were so naive that it had me squirming to watch them fall into the clutches of the evil and deceptive Osric.
    The session Drake has with Kwan on learning to breathe fire is a hoot!
    The costuming and sets were on a par with the original. I enjoyed seeing more of beautiful Slovakia.
    There seemed to be some hinting around at the end that suggested there might be yet another movie in the offing. I am interested in what sort of story they might have in mind. I would like to see Drake with a better developed set of horns!
    There are a couple of faults I find with this movie: I would have liked to have seen more of Drake and a longer fight scene at the end. The animation was not as fluid as the original Dragonheart. It wasn't awful either. I felt the story was a good one; a longer film would have fleshed it out more.
    The original Dragonheart stands alone in its genre. I don't think another film will be made that is up to it's par.
    I appreciate that the producers of A New Beginning did not try to duplicate the first movie; they went in a completly different direction and told a story that is family friendly and satisfying in it's own right.
    Four stars for a solid family film.

    Many people will agree with me that "Dragonheart" is one of the best movies. It is different from all the movies with pointless war and which just based on cool graphics and explosions . This is the type of movie wich you can feel with your heart and your soul. After i saw this movie i became depressed because of the strong ending. Thnks god that there was a second movie which is not that strong but it helps after you have seen the first one. I think it is very important to see both movies. Still i wish to see the third sequel of that movie. Dragonheart will make you think. It is hard to be the onle one who is left of you kind.
    I don't think it is possible to put the feelings on the paper , so it is better if you watch this. And wish for the third sequel.
    PS Sorry for my English i am Russian

    Blech. That's probably the best thing I can say about this video. The original movie "DragonHeart", of which I am a huge fan, is a movie with an interesting premise: the last dragonslayer and the last dragon team up together to defeat an evil king and free his people from slavery. Aided by a fiery peasant girl and a priest, they ultimately bring victory . . . at a cost. (Check out the movie reviews at for a more detailed plot.) One of the neatest things about "DragonHeart" was the simple premise of the last dragon and the last dragon-slayer together. So, I ask you, how can there be a sequel to the movie when it was about the _last_ dragon? There are no more dragons in the world after "DragonHeart"; just in the stars and in our hearts. It quite upset me to see the producer cheapen the effects and meanings in the first movie in order to produce a rather cheezy sequel. The plot is simple; a young boy training for knighthood meets a young dragon, Drake. Don't ask me where _he_ came from; _Draco_ was the _last_ dragon in DragonHeart! There is a problem----the dragonette can't fly. Together, they must learn how the dragon is to fly, but also overcome an evil ruler. Not the most fascinating plot, but it's certainly a sad substitute for the original movie. Not to mention the fact that the special effects are no where near as magical as in the first movie; at times Drake almost appears to have a black outline around him, and his movements are jerky and sometimes unnatural. I will say this, the acting seems decent; but the actors are not given much to work with! I have a great respect for the writer, Charles Edward Pogue, who did the first movie.Read more ›
