Dragonlance Movie

Dragonlance: Dragons of Autumn Twilight the animated direct to DVD movie will be released on Tuesday the 15th. This has been in production for years and I remember speculation about this movie as far back as the late 90's. Here is the trailer:

They were able to get top-notch voice talent (Kiefer Sutherland as Raistlin is brilliant casting, IMO) and the authors of the novel had a big hand in the production, according to the official site.

One thing I don't like is the He-Man style (I don't know what it's really called) animation they used. Granted they probably didn't have the budget for a slick CGI production, but I was hoping for something a bit... darker I suppose. If you have read the book, you know that this isn't a Disney fairy-tale. The movie got a PG-13 rating, which would be right if they made an adaption true to the novel. I also feel that they made a serious error by not casting Alizee in some roll. Maybe she can be Kitiara or Alhana Starbreeze in the next movie, if they make one.

I would really like to see a live-action adaption made. Back in the day, me and the MoD would sit around drinking and "casting" the movie. I always thought that Michael Wincott would have made an excellent Raistlin.

I hope they didn't fuck it up. I will post a review with screen shots after I check it out.

It looks like it'll be decent, at least. I can't find it on Netflix to add to my queue. I wonder how widely available it'll be.
