This clever and entertaining short film is a mixture of animation and movie in which Peter Benchley is trying to hook up with Walt Disney to pitch a story idea about The Reluctant Dragon. This lighthearted story follows the adventures of a brave young boy who, emboldened by tales of brave knights, decides to pursue the horrible dragon that is terrifying the villagers. But what he discovers is a surprisingly friendly dragon that is more interested in reciting poetry and making music than devouring fair damsels. Will the boy be able to stop the local hero before he challenges the dragon to a fiery battle? The movie is also part documentary in that it shows the process of creating an animated film.
