Film: Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God
Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God
(also known as Dungeons & Dragons: The Elemental Might
) is a 2005 made-for-TV live-action movie set in the Dungeons & Dragons
universe. Unlike the Dungeons & Dragons
film released in 2000, Wrath of the Dragon God
is clearly based upon its source material — to the point at which it often seems as if its characters are simply explaining various aspects of the Player's Handbook to one another.
3000 years ago, Faluzure, the evil dragon god of decay and undeath, attacked the kingdom of Turan. The Turanian mages (with the help of the god Obadhai) were able to repel Faluzure and imprison him.
100 years ago, the evil mage Damodar — formerly The Dragon
to Jeremy Irons' Big Bad
in the previous Dungeons & Dragons
movie — fought against the people of Izmir and was cursed with a century of suffering as one of the undead. Now Damodar is back. He intends to free Faluzure and take his revenge on Izmir.
The people behind this produced a third film called Dungeons & Dragons: The Book of Vile Darkness
, which premiered on SyFy
in November 2012.
