Storyline

It opens in Poland, with Nazi bombs falling. Flash Gordon is given a message for Dr. Hans Zarkov. Reporter Dale Arden is also looking for Zarkov, to interview him for her newspaper. Next, as in the comic strip and movie serial, their plane crashes and they join Zarkov on his rocketship to Mongo, where dinosaurs threaten them. Then, in a sequence that does not occur until much later in other versions, they are captured by the Beastmen. This is followed by the familiar first confrontation with Ming, and their first meeting with Thun the Lionman and Ming's daughter Aura. Next, in a sequence not from the strip, with Flash and Thun are made slaves in the mines of Mongo. They escape, and, as in the strip, meet Prince Barin of the Forest Kingdom and Vultan, King of the Hawkmen, (skipping over the Shark Men of the comic ... Written by Rick Norwood

Trivia

In the late '70s, producer Lou Scheimer acquired the rights to produce a live-action Flash Gordon movie-of-the-week for NBC, and he commissioned Samuel A. Peeples to write the script. Peeples' script was deemed unfilmable in live-action, so it was decided to shoot it as an animated film. NBC wouldn't give Scheimer additional funds for animation, so he turned to Dino De Laurentiis, who agreed to give him money to complete the movie in return for helping him to secure the rights to make the theatrical film Flash Gordon (1980). NBC was so wowed by the animated film that they decided to shelve it, recut it and run it as the Saturday morning series Flash Gordon (1979). After the series ended its run, the original film was finally aired during prime-time in its entirety. See more »

Truly the greatest of all
12 June 2002 | by (Pieksämäki, Finnland) – See all my reviews

This animation was my first contact with magical world of Flash Gordon. I had never before even heard of him, although there was some similarities with one Micky Mouse story. This film was made with love and it shows: the animation is absolutely fabulous.
