With Lord of the Rings paving the way for stuff like Narnia and Eragon, I'd think that something with the popularity of Dungeons & Dragons' Dragonlance series would be a sure thing for the same, live-action/CGI treatment. But nope. Animated movie.
Is it going to be direct-to-DVD too?
At least they got Lucy Lawless to do one of the voices, but telling her to just "do Xena" for it is pretty unoriginal.
I've only read the initial trilogy in the vast Dragonlance series, but it was imaginative and unique and had some great visuals, so this is all pretty disappointing news.
