Dragon’s Lair: The Movie Pitch Presentation is finished!! We want to thank all of you for your support and contributions. Without you we wouldn’t have made this happen and a BIG Happy 80th Birthday to Don Bluth!! You can watch the pitch on Official Dragon’s Lair: The Movie Website. For those of you who contributed to Dragon’s Lair: The Movie – Indiegogo Campaign you should be receiving an email in the next week with another link to the pitch presentation.


I personally would like to thank Don Bluth & Gary Goldman. Our team worked around the clock to make this pitch happen, create and send out perks to contributors and really fight for what we all believe in, Traditional Animation. I never had a job in my life that I wanted to come in to work on weekends and work nights. Most of the time you just want to go home and relax, but not working at Don Bluth Films. There were times Don would say, “Go home, and get some rest Lavalle”. I would just grumble and say, “Do I have to??”.

We all will continue to work hard here and update everyone as everything progresses. We have a lot of big plans for the future and you all will be the first to know!


A Bluth Fact: Don Bluth and Gary Goldman left Walt Disney Studios on Don Bluth’s birthday in 1979 and now in 2017 Don Bluth finished the Dragon’s Lair: The Movie pitch presentation on Don Bluth’s birthday as well.

Lavalle Lee

Lavalle Lee

Lavalle Lee has been creating animated cartoons online since 1999/2000 for his website flashcartoons.org. Many cartoons on the site have gained viral video status reaching millions of viewers online. In 2009, Lavalle started learning hand drawn animation from Don Bluth in his animation classes, as well as attending his Masterclasses in Arizona. He has also personally studied animation and visual effects from Veteran Disney animators in Orlando, FL.

Lavalle is widely known in the animation industry as the creator of the TraditionalAnimation.com website. After seeing that most animation sites were about all types of animation, not any specific to classical hand drawn animation, Lavalle knew Traditional Animation needed to be represented online. TraditionalAnimation.com has become the leading website and social media account for all things 2D. The website served as inspiration for “The Traditional Animation Show” in which Lavalle was both producer and host.

His partnership with Don Bluth began when he championed the Dragon's Lair Indiegogo campaign as lead project manager, editor, voice actor and in-betweener. The campaign reached $730,000 dollars to produce a 7-minute pitch video. In 2017, Lavalle brought the idea of creating a school to Don Bluth, and Don Bluth University was born. After a decade of learning from Don Bluth and working together on multiple pitches and business ventures, Lavalle accepted the position as Vice President of Don Bluth's new company Don Bluth Studios.

    So excited for this!! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of the process behind everything, and for keeping traditional animation alive! You guys are an inspiration, I remember playing DL so much growing up and now to see it be made into a movie is something I can’t express through words alone!

    Don Bluth and team have done it again! Lavalle I know this has been a big dream of yours come true. Years of hard work in the making. Congratulations man. Team Bluth, creating something out of nothing and blazing a new trail for future generations in traditional animation. When I heard the murmurs of a possibility that Don was ready to get back to making another movie, I said I am ready to contribute however i can! I was able to contribute a small part of the funding through indiegogo. Now just two years later it is a real live reality! The first step is done, now the next step is to see this bad boy in glorious theaters. Again, Congrats to the Bluth team!

      Makes you wish he knew something about CHARACTER animation, and strong characters.

    It’s been a while since he was crowdfunding this and appeared with the Nostalgia Critic to spread the news. Glad to see he made it.

    I can’t wait!!! I always knew it would get off the ground, and I’m positive that it will be a theatrical release. Congratulations to Don Bluth and his crew, and I hope that The Secret of NIMH, An American Tail, The Land Before Time and All Dogs Go to Heaven will all someday get the proper treatment and releases they deserve.
