After 300 hundred years of peace, the world of Krynn has descended into darkness as the evil goddess Takhisis and her army of dragons threaten to dominate the lands. Can a small band of heroes, including the wizard Raistlin (Kiefer Sutherland), the priestess Goldmoon (Lucy Lawless), and the half-elven warrior Tanis (Michael Rosenbaum), save the world before all is lost? Based on the New York Times best-selling novel, DRAGONLANCE: DRAGONS OF AUTUMN TWILIGHT is an epic tale of might, magic, and monsters!
Based on the first in a series of countless fantasy books by bestselling authors Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman Dragonlance: Dragons of Autumn Twilight is the first animated feature-length film spun from the venerable Dungeons and Dragons role-playing game. The 90-minute feature hews as closely to the 400-plus-page source material as possible--in a nutshell, a group of adventurers seek to head off the evil plans of a multi-headed dragon goddess and her army with the help of a crystal staff--and there is plentiful swordplay and spellcasting to keep younger viewers entranced. And the voice talent, which includes Kiefer Sutherland, Xena's Lucy Lawless, and Michael Rosenbaum of Smallville, does a respectable job of making the heavy-handed dialogue sound believable. However, the animation (a mix of 2D and CGI) is truly dreadful, and brings the epic scope of the story down to the level of Saturday morning cartoons. Supplemental material might've helped make this middling DVD more palatable, but sadly, there's only a few clips of original test animation (which looks slightly better than the finished product) and a gallery of early character designs. --Paul Gaita
You look at the cast and think it will be good. If you're 10 or getting it for a 10 year old, go for it, adults should avoid.Published 2 months ago by Michael Paulus
Decent movie. It would have been better without the Draconians being cg instead of appearing hand drawn as the humanoids.Published 6 months ago by Russell Singleton
If you like Dragonlance: DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE! It was horrible.
I've read Chronicles, Legends, and many other Dragonlance novels. Read more
Cartooning was below average and story felt rushed. In this day and age of CGI and animation, and with the following Dragonlance has, more effort should have been placed into this... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Andrew D.
I love the story/books. I liked the movie okay but was very unsatisfied with how broken the story was. I would like to see more of these.Published 7 months ago by Darren Jennings
This had potential. But it is pretty obvious to me that they totally ran out of money or were horrifically underfunded than what they were promised by backers. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Mike "Vinterulf" Smith

They paid ONE AND A HALF MILLION for this pathetic excuse of a film?!
(My bet was on $0.02 for the script, $0.08 for the animation, and a box of donuts for the voice talent.)

|match the animation!||
While I can sort of forgive the inevitable shortcuts in story that compressing the Novel into a Movie comes with (although Jackson proved that long is fine if the story is good!!) I feel sorely let down by the animation as rendered in this hodgepodge mix of animation and CGI. I'd have rather... Read More
