Tom and Jerry: The Lost Dragon is a 2014 animated fantasy comedy direct-to-video film starring Tom and Jerry, produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Directed and produced by Spike Brandt and Tony Cervone, it premiered on July 27, 2014, at San Diego Comic-Con International. It is the first Tom and Jerry direct-to-video film to be marketed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in Japan. It was originally released digitally on August 19, 2014, to be followed by a DVD release on September 2, 2014.
The movie begins showing wizard Kaldorf expelling a powerful witch named Drizelda from a village. Kaldorf allows Drizelda's niece Athena to stay. The elf villagers fear she will turn out like her aunt because she keeps vermin (Jerry) and has an affection for cats (Tom). The cat and mouse are babies and Athena is only a young barefoot girl.
The film fast forwards to Tom and Jerry chasing each other, as they usually do, until they happen to come across a mysterious glowing egg. What neither of them know is that this egg was stolen from a very large, fire-breathing dragon. In a short time, a baby dragon named Puffy hatches from this egg and believes that Tom is his mother.
However, Puffy's real mother is angered that her baby is missing and wants him back, but before Tom and Jerry can even try to find her, Drizelda returns and captures Puffy, intending to use him for her own wicked plans. Athena brings Tom and Jerry with her to try and recue Puffy, but they encounter the Mother Dragon and manage to convince her that they're trying to rescue Puffy.
Meanwhile, Drizelda plans to get Puffy to breathe fire on a magic emerald which will absorb his power. She eventually succeeds and is turned into a dragon when the emerald is placed round her neck whilst Puffy is turned to stone. Drizelda returns to the village with the petrified Puffy and easily overpowers Kaldorf, but the Mother Dragon shows up and tries to fight her, until she breathes fire on Drizelda's emerald, resulting in her getting turned to stone as well.
Tom and Jerry manage to get the emerald from around Drizelda's neck and shatter it with a hammer, causing Drizelda to be turned to stone herself whilst Puffy and the mother dragon are returned to normal.
