  • Released theatrically in the USA May 31, 1996. Shot in Panavision widescreen. Color by DeLuxe. In DTS sound. Additional cast: Lee Oakes (Young Einon), Wolf Christian (Hewe), and Terry O'Neill (Redbeard). Additional credits: Jano Svoboda (art direction), Thomas Casterline (costume designer), James Straus (character animation supervisor), and Judith Weaver (visual effects producer). Director Rob Cohen cast Sean Connery as the voice of Draco the dragon "because he has represented various aspects of masculinity that were a perfect overlay for this dragon." In addition, animators used close-ups of the actor's face to morph Connery into Draco. The budget for the film was reportedly $57 million -- $22 million of which went towards the special effects and animation needed to create Draco the dragon (182 shots of the dragon are seen in the film). Rated BBFC PG by the British Board of Film Classification. Copyright 1996 Universal City Studios, Inc.
