  1. Dragonslayer

    Dragonslayer is a 1981 fantasy film set in a fictional medieval kingdom, following a young wizard who experiences danger and opposition as he attempts to defeat a dragon. A co-production between Walt Disney Productions and Paramount Pictures, Dragonslayer was more mature and realistic than other Disney films of the period. Because of audience expectations for a more family-friendly film from Disney, the film's violence, adult themes, and brief nudity, was somewhat controversial at the time – even though Disney did not hold US distribution rights, which were held by Paramount. Disney later created Touchstone Pictures to produce more mature fare starting with 1984's Splash. The film was directed by Matthew Robbins, from a screenplay he co-wrote with Hal Barwood. It starred Peter MacNicol, Ralph Richardson, John Hallam, and Caitlin Clarke. Dragonslayer also featured then-unknown actor Ian McDiarmid as the minor character Brother Jacopus. McDiarmid's next film role after Dragonslayer would be that of the villain Palpatine in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, a role which he would reprise in the subsequent Star Wars films.
