A third film, titled ''Dragonheart 3: The Sorcerer's Curse'', was released direct-to-video and on Netflix in February 2015. Gareth, a squire aspiring to be knighted, discovers a dragon and a clutch of eggs while searching for treasure to pay off his debt. The dragon - who Gareth names Drago - saves Gareth's life by sharing his heart after the young man is badly wounded protecting the eggs, and the two become bonded.

Drago, however, has been cursed by the evil sorcerer, Brude, who wants the eggs for himself: in bright light or by fire, Drago becomes ghostly, unable to fight, and on the night of the full moon - just two days away - Brude will be able to fully bend Drago to his will. Gareth and Drago, and their two new companions, must protect the eggs and figure out a way to break the curse.

A sequel, ''Dragonheart: A New Beginning'' came Direct-to-Video in 2000. Although the new dragon, Drake, was voiced by Robby Benson of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' fame, it was fairly standard DTV fare.

Toward the end of Bowen's life, he had returned to the cave where he had first met Draco - and discovered a dragon egg. The egg was put in the care of Gilbert's monastery, where it hatched into a young dragon named Drake. Drake is cared for by a friar and the novice Mansel in secret, until he is one day discovered by Mansel's friend Geoff, a stableboy who dreams of being a knight. Meanwhile, a pair of travelers arrive from the East, searching for a dragon they believe has been born; a prophecy says an ancient evil will take hold of the land using a dragon's heart when a two-tailed comet blazes across the sky. The comet is just days away, and they intend to prevent the evil from happening.
