Unfortunately it appears that the previously announced The Legend of Spyro 3D movie has been cancelled.

Aura24 recently got in contact with one of the writers and got this response:

Quote: Daniel Altiere
So sorry for the let down but we're as disappointed as you are. I'm afraid we're just the writers -- no more than hired hands. We didn't even know the project was cancelled until months after they pulled the plug.

Did you consider writing the gaming company? They're the ones who made the decision to go in a different direction. And if we knew what that direction was we'd share it with you. Again sorry for the disappointment. Wish we had more encouraging news for you.


With no news since May 2008, it was only to be expected. I've readded the full synopsis of the proposed movie back to the The Legend of Spyro 3D page in case you are interested in what might have been.

I am a fan of both the old and new Spyro's. I really liked the new ones, the graphics and music, kinda like a lord of the rings spyro. My two daughters 8 and 9, also love both the old and new spyro's and they were thrilled that they could both play in the last game. All i want is a new spyro game, i keep checking and cheking all over the net but no news yet. if you know when a new one comes out please keep me informed..
This is just MHO
BTW i enjoy the site.

I doubt it but it would be cool because at the end of DOTD in the credits it says thanks for supporting our favorite purple dragon we would have not made it through without your continued encouragement this is me quoting the credits after that there has be no trailers for games of spyro or really anything besides the 72 hour marathon for sickkids

ps i'm just saying what i herd

Iwonder if there is a specific site out there where we could put our complaints, maybe they will hear our cry for another game instead of a movie and create another one.... BTW i can't believe they are making a crash movie... not something i want to see although i do enjoy the games...

In the context of movie EA should own rights to Spyro.They are often releasing films about new franchise games (for example Dante's Inferno:an Animated Epic, Dead Space: Downfall and Aftermath).

Agreed.
EA often makes good films of their games. I loved Dead Space: Downfall.

I think that they should have made a movie of the first game. But that's my opinion.

There was a Gameinformer interview between a staff of GI and the producers of the LoS trilogy. They confirmed that they only scratched the surface with the LoS trilogy, which was created to recreate Spyro's world. Stupid gameinformer website deleted the interview though...

Pretty much what i have to say in this matter, is that i'm glad the cancelled the movie, cause that means they can make, better and more greater games, then after Spyro games get better and all, they can make a movie, the better the games are, even better the movie will be.

I am actually Glad it was cancelled. For me, tLoS was not a good Series, and we did not need a Reboot. The original 3 were brilliant and Seirra just ruined Spyro. DotD was awful, and for me these are tLoS ratings:
ANB = 1/10
TEN = 0.8/10
DotD = 0.1/10
So I am very glad it was cancelled

It wouldn't matter anyways, because Activision will make the decision whether to go back to the Old Spyro that was dying since Insomniac left, or continue in the universe of the LoS.

Yes, I know that. I was simpily stating my opinion on the series itself...
Anyway, it's cancelled, so there's no point really in mourning it now. It happens, un/fortunatly things are cancelled. Often Good, often Bad. We can't stop it, people have to face up to that. Anyway, Spyro started as a game, so why turn into a movie Franchise? It would not be much fun. Plus, we've already seen tLoS, so we know what happens. We'd just be like "I know the ending, Spyro Saves Cynder because she turns good..." It would be a boring repeat, wheras new games would prove more fun and exciting.
Plus, judging by how the movie sounds, it would've been a letdown for tLoS fans. Plus, Sparx would hardly have a role, and it's rather difficult to make a film of of a game exactly by Detail, as seeing Spyro running around for about half an hour would be pretty Boring. This whole idea of Cynder wearing a Necklace bonding her to the Dark Masters whims is just a bit of a cheesy rip-off from the Necklaces from DotD.
Plus, most Fans are fans of the Originals. They've turned Spyro from something enchanting to a load of rubbish for me.
Of Course, this is entirely my Opinion.

Omg no! I waited a few years for that. Very dissapointing. The games rocked, my favorite being Riptos Rage. But i honestly dont see how they could make a movie from games, unless it was mostly about the little cut-scenes. And i know cynder would be badass. Oh well...

I can see why you're dissapointed. The movie may have been good, to tLoS fans, at this time I'd like topoint out I oppose the LoS series. Ripto's Rage/Gateway to Glimmer was quite a good game, lots of fun. I personally loved the very first Spyro game, and a movie of the first three Insomniac games would be very good since so many people loved them. However, theres the negative response of you'd know what would happen.

So you see, I'm not critisizing the film because I hate tLoS, I'm critisising it because it'd be a boring repeat of the games with some extras... even films of the first 3 would probably suck...

I think I may point out, also, not everybody likes tLoS. While it seems like I may be trying to enforce my Opinion, I'm not. I'm stating fact, as you see any Spyro fan liked the Original three games. They were fun and enchanting, the newer ones don't seem right.
The controls were messed with. Look, Charge is just weak unlike the Originals, and the enemies are... Apes. C'mon, evil Apes? And since when did Spyro have a limited use of breath? It's silly, and makes the game unfair when low on the green Gems. Bringing to Question, Gems aren't powerups. They're collectibles to keep the player occupied.
Then Health. Yes, you had a much better chance with this Health, but I miss the Sparx health Counter.
I realy do not want to seem rude or anything, but that's how I feel about tLoS. This is my opinion on the series itself, and the reason as to why I didn't like the Movie idea

tbh the TLOS series wasan't spyro at all, it's more about a legend of purple dragons etc.. not a dragon that was not special in anyway but still kicked ass, we loved spyro because of it's adventure and collectable aspects, not because we liked beating up countless amounts of enemy's just to get to the next part of a level... the whole TLOS series BORED me completly, the amount of enemys I had to fight that took a long time, not just one simple attack Spyro was never a fighting game, spyro never had moves similar to sonic, and spyro was never some bigged up super powered purple dragon, that's why I hated the reboot it just ruined everything, remakeing the first 3 games would be a better idea than carrying on that rubbish.

I have to agree completely, tLoS was a dissapointment to me.

I wouldn't say that he were starting a Flame War, more or less stating an opinion on tLoS. I'd say starting a Flame War would be a noob coming on saying "TLOS SUX AND ANY1 WHO LIKEZ IT DOZ 2!!!!!!!!111", which would be an unnesacary and offensive post.

I doubt that. PS2 died ages ago. PS3, XBox 360, 3DS, Wii and PC are the ways of the future.
Also, most Game-to-movie adaptions do suck a bit.
