L - Could it be Lord of the Rings?

Welcome to day twelve of the A to Z Challenge. If you're here for the first time or if you've forgotten already, this year's theme is movies! I am posting a quote, a character or two, and a brief synopsis of a movie for each letter. You then get to guess the movie in the comments. Answers will be revealed in the following day's post.

Answer to K: A Knight's Tale

As you can probably guess from the title, today's movie is NOT Lord of the Rings. Any of them. I know that will come as a shock to some who know me, since I consider the Lord of the Rings trilogy to be one of the greatest of all time. But, that's not what we're talking about today. Today's movie goes much further back. We're taking it back to the 80's. Let's see the clues.

Character
Grig - He may look like an iguana on steroids, but he's one of the best navigators a pilot could ask for. He may also be the most gung-ho lizard of all time, determined to fight a desperate battle against incredible odds. He's also a father of 6000 little Griglings.

"Terrific. I'm about to get killed a million miles from nowhere with a gung-ho iguana who tells me to relax." - Alex Rogan

Synopsis
Alex lives in a trailer park, doing odd jobs to help out around the place. It looks like his life is determined for him. Until he meets a game designer who offers him a chance at another destiny. If he can survive long enough.

See you tomorrow with the answer.
