The year 2000 had tried and failed to adapt Dungeons & Dragons for the big screen, but Paramount Pictures is going to have one more stab at the IP when it hits theaters next year. Just in, we have the official title reveal of the upcoming D&D movie.
Watch the Dungeons & Dragons movie here:
The video also came with the official description:
Our campaign begins… Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. Come join our party with Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, Chloe Coleman, Daisy Head, and Hugh Grant as our journey begins in theatres on March 3, 2023.
The description doesn’t really give us a good idea of what to expect with the story, but Chris Pine has previously described the movie as “Game of Thrones meets Princess Bride with a dash of Holy Grail, and a good dose of Goonies.” From that we can surmise that the film will have a lighter fantasy tone—as compared to the serious take of franchises like Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings.
With Dungeons & Dragons being so prevalent in pop-culture, I’m interested to see what direction the movie is going to take the IP. While I think it’s a given they stick to the established lore, it would be great if this could encourage audience members to try out the actual game for the first time.
Dungens & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is set to hit theaters on March 3, 2023.
