Product Description

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!

Amazon.com

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

Customer Reviews

I've been a huge fan of the dragonlance books.
Kimberly Lambert
The sad thing is that the poor animation becomes so distracting that you can't concentrate on the story or even tell if the voice acting is any good.
Amazon Customer
If you haven't read the books, then by all means watch the movie, but I believe you will be only getting half the story.

Whooo..where to start? I've been a fan of these books for about 20 years or so. Needless to say that I was psyched to hear of an animated project based on the books. Unfortunately, this falls prey to the typical "book/video game to movie" standard.

The animation is about on par with late 80s/early 90s Marvel Saturday morning stuff and at times, the original D&D cartoon. It does not work well for the story being told, IMO.

The movie is PG-13, likely due to some of the violence/blood which is not always at the same level for every fight scene. One fight they show people that were impaled on stakes, people being cooked by fire breathing dragons and blood when creatures are killed. Another fight there's no blood and the creatures are kind of just conked around.

Another thing is the too many seconds spent on Tika's bouncy lady lumps. I get that Caremon is checking her out but it just doesn't work, it feels wrong. Maybe I'm too stuck relating the animation to the cartoons of my youth, where this would be way out of place.

And then there are the dragons and draconians which are all done in CGI. I don't know if you've ever seen CGI characters and traditionally animated characters intergrated in the same scene successfully, but here they aren't. It looks like a bad special effect from a live action movie. The CGI is of the kind you'd find in a Hot Wheels commercial.

The voice acting is not too bad. At first I didn't like Keifer Sutherland as Raistlin, but it grew on me as it went on. He really gets the right attitude down.

For 'extras' you get some character designs and a preliminary animation test. Oh, and some trailers!
If you're familiar with the story and you like it, I'd say rent it...and even then get it from Redbox for $1.

Dragonlance is a journey ... and was from the beginning.

Dragons of Autumn Twilight was and remains a first in so many ways: it was the first novel together for Margaret and me, it was the first attempt at doing a classic fantasy story for a game setting, and the first book publication for TSR. Looking back on it now, after twenty years of polishing our writing, that first book looks rough and imperfect ... but it was the first step down a road that lead us to great wonders. Flawed as it appears now ... it is deservedly beloved.

Since before the publication of Dragons of Autumn Twilight, we have seen Dragonlance in cinematic terms. We wrote the books visualizing them as movies and dreamed that one day, our visions would be realized on film.
Now, thanks to Paramount Pictures and Epic Entertainment, that dream has been realized and with it, we take our first step down the new road of Dragonlance films.

Recently, Paramount sent to Margaret and me a copy of the film on DVD so that we could preview the final cut. It is quite a thrill watching our characters come to life and hearing the familiar story begin anew. Michael Rosenbaum and Fred Tataciore bring life to the opening scene on their way to meet their friends in Solace. The voice casting in this film is phenomenal. Lucy Lawless gives Goldmoon wonderful depth and even newcomer Caroline Gelbert brings a freshness to Laurana that is breathtaking. The heart of Dragonlance has always been its characters, and the movie shines especially in two of the stories most intriguing personalities, Tasslehoff and Raistlin ... each brought vividly alive by the incredible talents of Jason Marsden and Keiffer Sutherland.

When I heard about the release of this item, I was excited. I am a fan of the story and the book that this movie is based off of. Before you say, "oh this is a book fan boy review that is pissed about a movie translation" please keep reading.

Putting aside the fact, major points of the book are removed, edited, and such, as with most book to movie translations. That in reality this should be two movies and not one, just to do the story justice. This is a review on the actual product that was released.

1. The animation is inconsistent, you will see nicely rendered 3D effects and scenes, and you will see lazy standard animation. When I say lazy, I am talking poor quality. And there is clumsy bouncing from scene to scene.

2. For a large number of the 2D animations, to me it seemed like a pane was out of focus. In my opinion the product never should have been ok'd to release, and the editor should be fired for his or her poor job in quality assurance of the animation process.

3. The story is on fast forward, like I said before, this should have been broken into two movies, 90 minutes does not do the story justice.

4. The voice acting is well done and is a positive aspect of the movie, at first I was not too wild over Kiefer Sutherland's voice of Raistlin, however he did grow on me, and he did a great job. As well as the other cast members.

If you are a fan of the series, rent it before you buy it, and see if this is something you want in your collection. I am more disappointed in the quality that Paramount Pictures released.

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
