Dark Kingdom: The Dragon King

A student has pointed me to the Sci-Fi channel's Dark Kingdom: The Dragon King, based on the Nibelung legends, primarily, it seems, off the Middle High German Nibelungenlied, which is the most famous and the one used by Wagner. I'm partial to the Völsunga saga and the earlier poems that make up the The Niflung Cycle of the Poetic Edda.

See also Ring of the Nibelungs.
