Courage is a movie project. The project was started back in 2008 when I looked at the Wikipedia article about courage. This working title will be Fortitude. The project is currently on hold indefinitely.

Originally, this was meant to be Lego crime film based on other crime dramas, but has been changed into a sci-fi film.  It was originally set to be released in the fall of 2009 after The Robot Man came out, but it never happened.

The project is not part of Courage the Cowardly Dog, a Cartoon Network series and character created by John R. Dilworth. A trademark of Warner Bros. Entertainment. This project is not part of the show in any way.


Set in the year 1978 in Los Angeles, a English student named Alex Banister who fought courage against an alien invasion in California, after a UFO crashed in the Mojave desert.


I'll write a better summary about the movie project, as well as the emotions and other things associated with courage.
