Movie Series - Dragonheart

Dragonheart is a 1996 fantasy/adventure film directed by Rob Cohen. It stars Dennis Quaid, David Thewlis, Pete Postlethwaite, Dina Meyer, and the voice of Sean Connery as Draco. In England, A.D. 984, the tyrannical Saxon King Freyne summons his young son Einon (Lee Oakes) and Einon's mentor Bowen (Dennis Quaid) to witness the suppression of a peasant rebellion. Though the king's troops are ultimately victorious, Freyne is killed when the rebels stage an ambush. Einon rushes into the fray to claim his crown and is accidentally stabbed through the heart before Bowen can reach him. Einon's mother, Queen Aislinn (Julie Christie) has him taken to a cave in the mountains where she pleads with a dragon to save the boy's life. The dragon recognizes Aislinn as "the daughter of the Celts," whose people had revered his kind. For her sake, the dragon removes a part of its own heart and bestows it upon the boy, cauterizing the wound with a blast of fire. Einon revives and is carried home to recover. Grateful for the dragon's sacrifice, Bowen pledges to repay his debt. Shortly thereafter, Einon reveals himself to be as brutal and pitiless as his father, enslaving the former rebels and forcing them to begin work rebuilding the nearby ruins of a Roman castle. As the young king gives the order to have the rebel leader blinded, Bowen intervenes and allows the man to escape. Believing that the dragon's heart is responsible for Einon's wickedness, Bowen returns to the cave and vows to seek vengeance. Twelve years later, Einon's castle is rebuilt and Bowen becomes a formidable dragon-slayer. He stalks another dragon to its cave and engages it in battle, resulting in a stalemate. The dragon (voiced by Sean Connery) tells Bowen that he is the last of his kind, and that the dragon-slayer will have difficulty finding work if the two "pursue this fracas to its final stupidity". The dragon proposes a partnership, and the two begin defrauding local villages with staged dragon-slayings. Since the dragon's name is unpronounceable to humans, he is renamed "Draco", after the constellation which resembles a dragon. Dragonheart: A New Beginning was the 2000 sequel.
