In 1996, Dragonheart flew its way into cinemas. The fantasy adventure movie, about a knight who befriends a dragon, starred Dennis Quaid, Sean Connery, David Thewlis, and Pete Postlethwaite.

Dragonheart received mixed reviews from critics, but proved popular with audiences, making it a box office success. As such, the film was followed by a series of direct-to-video sequels/prequels which developed the story further.

If you’re new to the Dragonheart movie series, and you really want to get into it, it can be a little daunting, as the films were not released in chronological order. However, if you continue reading this post I will provide you with the best viewing orders (plural) to guide you through the series, and help you out.
