Let the Dragon Fest begin! Can't Post

With the announcement of The Hobbit, Hollywood is bound to start a new wave of dragon movies, as has been suggested before, by gramma, I believe. Well, Universal has taken the first step towards this, acquiring the movie rights to the Dragonology series.

The faux nonfiction books by Dugald A. Steer are based on the conceit that dragons actually exist as revealed by the Victorian dragonologist Ernest Drake. An underlying theme is that dragons should be studied and revered in the same way as any rare species.

The movie reportedly "revolves around a group of dragonologists who go on a globetrotting quest to keep a corrupt man from taking control of the world's dragons and using them to wipe out humanity."

I haven't read the actual stories derived from the series, but the Complete Book of Dragons is a brilliant work, beautifully illustrated and nicely researched.

I don't know how the movie will turn out, but I like the book series. We'll have to wait and see.

Here's to Del Toro becoming the Irvin Kershner of Middle Earth!
