An incredible casting for the Dungeons & Dragons movie
More of the film’s wit and stunning creature designs are displayed in a new behind-the-scenes teaser for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.

Reviewing All That We Know About D&D: Honor Among Thieves
In Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, Chris Pine and his cast mates are met with a raucous audience.
Daley and Goldstein’s upcoming adaptation is going in a new direction. Still, there are also numerous ways it stays true to the original tabletop game that diehard fans will appreciate. Never Winter, Waterdeep, Icewind Dale, and The Underdark are some of the Forgotten Realms locales taken directly from the competition and used in Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. As well as reusing many of the game’s settings, the film also features a number of the game’s classes, with Pine portraying a Bard, Rodriguez a Barbarian, Page a Paladin, Smith a Sorceror, Lillis a Druid, and Grant, a Rogue.
The next film delivers on the promise of a wide range of fantastical monsters, a need in any Dungeons & Dragons adaptation. The next movie also has a variety of dragons, a mimic, an owlbear, a displacer beast, and a gelatinous cube. Even though the monsters in Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves will pose severe challenges to the protagonists, Forge Fletcher (played by Grant) is widely regarded as the film’s primary antagonist. Grant, who is most known for playing several endearing romantic protagonists, will be making a dramatic shift in the genre with this role.
There are still many unanswered questions about Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, but the trailers have shown that the film will be both loyal to the game and innovative in its own right. There have yet to be any incredibly successful movie adaptations of the game before, but Paramount’s next feature could be a significant turning point for the brand. As the movie’s release date draws nearer, more information about Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is set to surface in the coming months, but the current trailer shows that fans are in for a humorous, monster-filled adventure.
