With day 1 of San Diego Comic-Con 2022 kicking off, fans in attendance were treated to the first trailer for the 2023 movie Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. For fans of the tabletop roleplaying game, there is a lot to be excited for and a few familiar characters here as well.
The film follows a group of adventurers on the search for a relic–specifically a cursed helmet. The action comedy will have the group traveling the lands, facing various monsters and evening fighting monsters in an arena–all typical, fun stuff for every D&D game. And yes, the Gelatinous Cube, Displacer Beast, and Mimic will be in the movie. Check out the trailer below.
“I wasn’t a big DnDer,” Pine told everyone in Hall H. “My nephew, who is now 13, was writing his own campaign who was playing every week. They sent me a D&D gift pack when I got involved in the movie and my nephew just got so excited–so we decided to play a game with my family and to see them all just light up. It just snowballed, everyone got so stoked on it. It was a surprise to me that I hadn’t really found it until 42. If there’s one game that should be played in high school–every single high school across the nation–it should be D&D.”
