Dragon Age animated film to detail Cassandra’s adventures
Funimation has finally pulled the veil back on its animated Dragon Age film; see some footage and get the skinny within.
Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker was announced in 2010 but has been largely under wraps since then. In a production Update video, embedded below, it’s revealed that the film is set in Orlais, a rival power to Ferelden visited briefly in Dragon Age: Origins DLC, and concerns the early adventures of Cassandra, a character seen in Dragon Age II’s frame narrative.
“In the Dragon Age universe we have been pursuing a story line, so when the question came up ‘who should this movie be about?’ and the answer became Cassandra, it’s because it ties in with the themes we’ve been building to,” BioWare’s Mike Laidlaw said.
“For us, finding out her back story, seeing how she rose to the prominence that she has, gives us this completely new take on what’s happening both with her order, and with the Templars, and with that ongoing conflict that ties the whole Dragon Age universe together.”
“It adds to the world. It expands the lore. it builds on things we’ve hinted at – and maybe even answers some questions.”
The fil is due on DVD and BluRay in northern spring.
