I watched this film over and over again when I was a kid on and just watched it now maybe 20 years since I last saw it. Its magic has transcended the years and it really has a beautiful innocence that can appeal to children and adults alike. This is the kind of film that can remind you of what it was like to dream and inspire you to seek out those dreams. The plot is simplistic but the themes of magic vs logic are really allegorical and make you think "why should I be content with what I've got when there's so much more to be had?". All sounds a bit profound I know but I think the value in this movie is really found when you watch it as an adult having seen it first when you were a child. Show it to your kids and keep it alive- its been deleted now but that kind of imaginative and rich film should never die.

"The Flight of Dragons" is finally being offered on DVD! Amazon is selling copies of the film on DVD-R discs using their Create Space service. These are legitimate, licensed copies. According to Amazon, copies of works sold through Create Space are made from original sources, so the picture and sound should be better than any bootleg available. So, if you've been looking for this film on DVD, just go to Amazon and search for "the flight of dragons DVD", and buy it directly from Amazon (not from the marketplace). I've already ordered my copy and can't wait to watch it. Create Space is licensed by the studio that owns the film to do this, so if the studio sees that there is a demand for the film, maybe we will see a normal DVD or Blu Ray release in the future.
Like a lot of people, I first saw this movie when I was about 5 and couldn't stop watching it. It was smashing! I recently found another copy after 12 years and found it hadn't lost its touch. The animation is great and the voices are well chosen. James Earl Jones and John Ritter are superb! The movie is about 4 wizards losing their magic powers and suggest they build a new magical realm. The evil wizard Ommadon (JEJ) doesn't like the idea and threatens to destroy mankind. The green wizard Carolinus (voiced by 'M.a.s.h' Harry Morgan) inspires a quest to kill Ommadon and steal his powerful red crown. Soon enough he manages to round up Peter Dickenson (The guy who wrote the book) from the 20th century. A knight named Sir Orin Neville Smythe, Arak the wolf, Danielle of the woodlands, Smrgol the old dragon, Giles the Elf and soon its Lord of the Rings all over again. This has tons to offer. The science and philosophical side to the story is really clever and makes perfect sense. The action and story is fantastic with the quest involving Sand Mirks (Horrid little creatures who attack by the million!) Giant Worms, More dragons and the ultimate Ogre of Gormley Keep. He used to scare me to death. The nice kind of direction where you can only see his shadow and his face for a second until someone screams. Its frightening! I also found that Smrgol dying made me cry. Still, Smrgol and the Ogres castle-top fight scene is brill! Even if you aren't a fan of this stuff you will enjoy. I'd love to see you find a copy of this too. Well, 10 out of 10 anyway. I hear the call of my comrades. Ha ha ha!
