Highlights from The 2014 Urban Action Showcase Last Dragon 30th Anniversary Screening & Cast Reunion
The event was a huge success but because seating was limited to only 400 lucky fans at the screening it left many fans wanting more! That’s where the The Last Dragon 30th Anniversary Team stepped in. The Team lead by Demetrius Angelo (founder of the Urban Action Showcase & Expo) , Craig Sutton (creator of The Last Dragon fan site) and Taimak (Bruce Leroy himself) reached out to fans for the opportunity to bring the celebration to their city. They tapped into the power of crowdfunding to let fans decide which city should host the next party and The Last Dragon 30th Celebration Tour was launched.
