PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Profion, a tyrant, attempts to overthrow a peaceful kingdom ruled by a tough empress.
The film is not based on the classic 1980s cartoon of the same name, but it is based on the same source material.
I got a new name for "dumb": "Ridley"! This is the Ridleyest thing I've ever heard!
Often, when chanting spells, Profion's lips fail to remotely match the words being chanted.
No dragons or other animals were hurt or injured during the filming of this motion picture.
Some sound reductions were made for the UK cinema version to reduce the impact of violence and bring the rating down to a "12". An uncut "15" rating was available to the distributor (Entertainment Film Distributors). UK video and DVD versions have the cuts restored because the sound effects were found to be "less disturbing on the small screen" (according to the British Board of Film Classification).
