Dragonworld: The Legend Continues (also known as: Dragonworld II and originally released on VHS in North America as: Shadow of the Knight) is a 1999 Adventure fantasy film.

Plot[edit]

The film bears little relation to the first movie. Johnny McGowan and his only true friend who is Yowler, the last dragon on Earth, is in serious trouble. The Dark Knight, who happens to be the enemy of Yowler, has returned and has determined to plan on slaying Yowler, so that way, he can get a hold of the magical powers inside the dragon's blood to bring in a new evil age of dark generations to the planet. Young John is now gained an opportunity to begin a new quest to protect Yowler, defeat the Dark Knight and save the world for all future generations.
