Dragon's Lair documentary in the works

Quite possibly the seminal non-photorealistic graphics-based game, often described as an interactive or playable cartoon, Dragon's Lair, is set to have a documentary based upon it. While Dragon's Lair has received many criticisms over the years as a game (which were not wholly undeserved it has to be said), watching its cel-shaded, laser-disc driven graphics in 1983 was miles away from the graphical experiences all other video games offered at the time.

The trailer above looks very cool and you can follow the progress of the film (titled Inside The Dragon's Lair and set to be released next year in celebration of the game's 30th anniversary) on Twitter too (here).
