Full of entertaining archetypes, action, and all manner of creatures and magic, Dungeons & Dragons feels made for the big screen. That said, previous live-action D&D movies haven’t been as amazing as one would hope. But Paramount Pictures is trying again with Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. The action-adventure movie focuses on a heist with a star-studded cast playing our band of heroes.
Here’s everything we know about Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.
The D&D movie is testing the record for the longest movie title ever. It’s called Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves‘ Plot
As a tabletop roleplaying game, D&D is all about the quests, and Honor Among Thieves has a quest at the heart of the story. The trailer teases our heroes’ missions and their foes. It comes with a healthy dose of humor and silliness, a tone that seems just right for this adaptation.
Honor Among Thieves‘ official synopsis is as follows:
A charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic, but things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves brings the rich world and playful spirit of the legendary roleplaying game to the big screen in a hilarious and action-packed adventure.
A new featurette for the movie reveals new glimpses at the characters and world of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.
You can also get a closer look at our party with their individual posters below. We have to say this looks like an incredibly fun adventure.
A recent clip from the Dungeons & Dragons movie teases that our hero team won’t be the only party around, though. As Chris Pine’s Edgin and co. prepare to enter a dangerous maze filled with some of D&D‘s most terrifying creatures; they realize they’re up against two other teams. And one of these teams is none other than the cast of characters from the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon, which aired in the 1980s. In the series, a group of friends from the real world get pulled into a fantasy world, and they must fight their way home.
We can’t say for certain whether we’ll actually meet these characters or they’ll just be fun Easter eggs. But it’s definitely a fun homage.
