Dragon Slayer script
Dragon Slayer (1981)
Synopsis: A terrible dragon is terrorizing the medieval land of Urland in the 6th century. Representatives from the kingdom seek the assistance of the wizard Ulrich (Ralph Richardson) to defeat the dragon immediately -- Urland has been delivering virgins to appease the dragon, and their princess (Chloe Salaman) has rigged the lottery system they use in order to sacrifice herself next. But when Ulrich is killed, the task to confront the dragon falls to the wizard's apprentice, Galen (Peter MacNicol).

Ulrich, startled from his trance, slaps the water out of the

basin and turns to confront his student. Galen is taken aback

by the old man's grim countenance.

GALEN:

What's the matter? What's happened?

ULRICH:

I've just seen something. Something

of consequence to you.

GALEN:

To me?

ULRICH:

(calm)

Yes. My own death.

With a distracted gesture he causes the flames to extinguish

themselves.

ULRICH:

Perhaps we had better hasten your

training.

CUT TO:

BARNYARD - DAY

Outside the castle wall Hodge is feeding the chickens and

ducks. He straightens up and squints through the early morning

mists. On a distant hillock two figures are moving toward

the woods.

ULRICH AND GALEN

Hobbling slowly with the aid of a pair of canes, Ulrich guides

his pupil across a wooden bridge and along a stream into the

forest.

ULRICH:

(stern and troubled)

This wood, these leaves, the birds,

the very dome of heaven, once they

all rang with one great chord: and

philosophers like me kept it all in

tune. Now, new voices are singing

new songs.

(sharply)

Have you mastered the threefold

transmutation?
