During the film's early production phase, in 1992, Jim Henson's Creature Shop was hired by director Raffaella De Laurentiis to create the dragon as an enormous animatronic. A warehouse in Camden Town was utilized for the project, becoming the new Creature Shop headquarters, and a full-sized dragon head and quarter-scale animatronic dragon puppet were produced. John Stephenson referred to the dragons as "one of the best jobs we've ever done." Only a small amount of test footage was shot. Dragonheart was put on hold, and when the film was finally completed, the dragon was created entirely through computer animation.[1]

  • When Dragonheart actor Dennis Quaid appeared on Muppets Tonight in episode 207, he introduced a purported screen-test for the film in which he played "Sir Cumference of the Circle" and Kermit the Frog stretched his acting ability as a dragon named "Frogo" (who sounds nothing like Sean Connery).
