Lucy Lawless To Co-Star With Kiefer Sutherland In New Animated Movie
Lucy Lawless will be voicing the female lead role in the upcoming animated film Dragonlance. The movie is set in the same world as Dungeons & Dragons and also co-stars Keifer Sutherland (24), Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville), and Michelle Trachtenberg (Buffy). Here is a description:
"Dragonlance is based on the first novel in the popular Dragonlance fantasy franchise; namely, 'Dragons of Autumn Twilight'. As is in the world of Dungeons and Dragons, the Gods continually fight for control over this beautiful swords- and sorcery- land, but in the end, it is the mortals, through their heroic deeds, who get to decide its fate. The film starts with Tanis Half-Elven meeting old friends, Flint Gireforge (a grumpy dwarven warrior), Tasslehoff Burrfoot (a tiny and inquisitive rogue), Raislin Majere (the dark, mysterious human wizard), and Sturm Brightblad (valiant human knight). Eventually, the companions are thrown into a conflict over a legendary Blue Crystal Staff, wielded by the Barbarian Princess, Goldmoon"
The film will not be getting a theatrical release and will likely be going direct to DVD in 2007. You can read the full press release here.
