The Last Dragonverse Project

Imagine a much bigger and wildly epic story which begins long before the original film we know and love, a tale that introduces a world of new characters while sweeping us through time and setting them on insane new adventures facing death-defying conflict with crazy new opponents and adversaries.  Try to wrap your mind around a massively larger and expanded canonical timeline in which the events of ‘The Last Dragon’ are simply one single, as yet unimaginably, consequential moment in time.

Now imagine a future in which, once Leroy had attained the Glow, he were to discover that this was merely the beginning of a far grander destiny and quest that would challenge him to rise to epically higher heights to ensure the survival of Laura, their children, friends, New York City itself, and yes — even the very fate of the world might hang in the balance.

The Shogun of Harlem is of course, ‘back on the scene’ with a new crew of charismatic urban wuxia warriors who take us on a journey through the mythology of the Red Glow.  This is just a taste of what, at least for now, we’re calling ‘The Last DragonVerse Project’ because it’s all built from the DNA of ‘The Last Dragon’ while at the same time becoming new — a story for TODAY.

This new ‘canon’ will begin in ‘A Thunder of Dragons’, a Multi-Volume series of Graphic Novels that are prequel, sequel, origin stories and reimagined remix of everything you loved about the original all rolled into one.  By laying an new foundation, ’A Thunder of Dragons’ will set the stage for what we envision as an expansion of the Franchise this iconic cultural touchstone has long deserved: live action and animated TV series, live action and animated films, PlayStation/X-Box Multi-Player video games, VR experiences, more graphic novels and comics, spinoffs, a series of Children’s Books — a Broadway Musical, and more.  The ultimate vision is to build a multi-generational epic with multiple new character offshoots.

A Thunder of Dragons: Volume One:

‘Enter the Dragonverse’

New York City, 1972-1978

Graffiti splashed subway cars, turntables scratching out the early rhythms of hip hop, Nicky Barnes ruling the streets, the kung fu craze hitting America where an entire generation had lost its collective mind in the thrall of Bruce Lee bursting into the consciousness of pop culture.
Long before he’d become known as the Shogun of Harlem, Jay Jefferson, along with a group of other young, charismatically scrappy street-smart New Yorkers navigate life, love, and teenage dreams on the mean streets of Harlem, Chinatown, Hell’s Kitchen, dojo wars, the wild ‘Jungle Kung Fu Tournaments’ at Madison Square Garden.
As each of them face life or death choices in this epic urban wuxia fantasy, their paths will cross, an unexpected twist of fate intervenes that will change their destinies forever.  They have been chosen for something far greater than themselves —and by the end of Volume One, it will have become clear that Leroy Green was definitely not the only Dragon in town.
