If you have paid attention to Dungeons and Dragons at all over the past few weeks, it was probably not because the new D&D movie, Honor among thievesrelease date is approaching. Real excitement (in the sense of excitement, not in the sense of happiness) Wizards of the Coast is trying to change your open gaming license, rollback, stumblingand then announce that, hey, maybe we should have asked the fans what they thought of it, huh?
Despite the controversy that Wizards of the Coast has recently found itself in, new trailer for the series D&D movie here and I can’t help myself, I will become a strong lady and want Holga to step on me.
This is a stellar comedy series about swords and sorcery that will probably bring a lot of laughs and remind people of the nostalgic days of the past when planning a game night was actually easy (not true, it was never easy). Since Chris Pine (who, according to the synopsis, is a “charming thief” but who we all know is a bard) and Michelle Rodriguez, the barbarian, make up the movie’s unlikely main couple, the rest of the group fills in fairly standard adventure group tropes.
The group includes a righteous paladin (Rare-Jean Page), soft sorcerer (Justice Smith), and a dastardly tiefling druid (Sophia Lillis), and each of them is completely recognizable to anyone who has ever played at least one session D&D.
It remains to be seen whether there will be problems with Dungeons and Dragons and Wizards of the Coast will impact this film’s turnout, with many people online calling for an all-out boycott of the film in support of the fans’ fight against the Seattle gaming company.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves releases in theaters March 31st.
