Coming out in just over two months Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is about to get another wave of hype. Today was the release of trailer two. In it we see more of the soon-to-be-famous rather than infamous adventuring party supporting each other while also taking shots at each other. It’s a typical dynamic in the game.
Some day we’ll find out more about Rodriguez’ youth D&D game, but not today.
One of D&D’s consistent themes is found family.
“This film is about found family,” Daley said. “Despite obvious differences, what keeps them together is this desire to fix something that’s much bigger than themselves. And then, what ultimately keeps them together is this newfound affinity that they end up having for one another.”From IGN
When characters, or real people, undergo the stresses of surviving dragon attacks they bond in ways that go far beyond friendship. If Honor Among Thieves can pull that off, and the trailers lean that way (as do the actors’ histories in other movies) it will justify me seeing it three or so times on opening weekend March 31, 2023.
From Ars Technica we learn that Critical Role performers are part of the movie.
Cast members from the D&D web series Critical Role (which spawned the animated series The Legend of Vox Machina)will also make cameo appearances.From Ars Technica
The movie continues to look good, unlike any other D&D movie in the past.
D&D TV show picked up by Paramount+
The Rawson Marshall Thurber written and produced TV show was picked up. It’s not connected to the movie, but exists within the same universe.
There’s been no update on the Derek Kolstad show in some time, but he’s busy with John Wick Infinity.
