Conan: The Rise of a Fantasy Legend was a special feature included with the 2-disc special edition DVD of the 1982 film Conan the Barbarian. The 2-disc special edition was only published in the United Kingdom, and its special features were never released in the United States.

Participants come from a wide range of fields including actors, composers, film writers, film producers, film directors, fantasy authors, comic book authors, comic book illustrators, book illustrators, editors of literary criticism, and even web designers.
