I am looking for an animated movie that felt like a mix of 'classic' Scottish and Japanese stories. Unfortunately, I don't remember anything about the plot, other than it having to do something with a dragon.

This movie was on Netflix around 2010-2011. I distinctly remember it being on Netflix at the same time as both "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" and "The Last Airbender" (Live action movie)

The only scene I remember is a knight in armor running on a bridge with a trail of smoke, and when he got off the bridge, he died and collapsed on the ground in dust and ash.

EDIT: I'm not entirely sure, but I think it was 3D CGI Animation.

A French production, but the vibe is Scottish with high fantasy influence, the CGI movie Dragon Hunters (2009) has a ten second scene involving a knight who races across a drawbridge, staggers inside, then falls apart into ashes and empty armour.

The scene in question occurs at 6:58 on the version of the movie found on Youtube.

The basic plot is that the titular Dragon Hunters are hired to go and slay a world-devouring dragon after certain omens foretell the dragon's return. One such omen is the 'Smouldering Knights'

Could this be "Record of Lodoss War"? It has a decidedly Celtic look and feel to it, despite being classically Japanese anime.

There are also dragons, knights and all manner of dust effects


Dante's Inferno (2010) OR Tales from Earthsea (2006)

  • Tales from Earthsea was my first thought when I read this

  • Could you add a description about these two candidates; it helps the author decide whether or not your propositions are what they are searching for Commented Oct 12, 2015 at 7:08
