On October 26, 2015, Don Bluth and Gary Goldman started a Kickstarter campaign to create an animated feature-length film of Dragon's Lair, his first since Titan A.E. in 2000. The Kickstarter funding was canceled when not enough funds were made close to the deadline, but an Indiegogo page for the project was created in its place. Bluth promoted the project with the help of the Nostalgia Critic, who had previously reviewed several of his films both positively and negatively in his YouTube channel. On December 14, 2015, the Indiegogo campaign reached its goal of $250,000, 14 days after the campaign launched, and got more than twice the budget on January 16, 2016.
