Adventures of a Teenage Dragon Slayer, also known as I Was a 7th Grade Dragon Slayer, is a 2010 American adventure comedy family film directed by Andrew Lauer. It stars Lea Thompson, Hunter Allan, Eric Lutes, Richard Sellers, Abby Victor, and Ryan Bradley Norris.


Branded as a "nerd" and harassed by the school bully, twelve-year-old Arthur is rescued by a magical alchemist/troll who holds the secret to defeat an evil dragon, but is soon able to return the favor. Arthur's loving mom Laura, struggling to keep her devious former husband from gaining custody of Arthur, dismisses her son's "fantasies" until she realizes the all too real immediate danger and joins forces with Arthur, the troll, the Knights of the Square Table (Arthur's pals Natalie and Tim), and a dashing fantasy card-game creator named Shane Barker. Together, they hope to conquer an unleashed dragon and the wicked vice-principal who threaten civilization.
