Taking from pages and gameplay of the famous tabletop role playing game, Paramount presents Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. The movie features the fantastical world and characters with attributes familiar to players. Almost ten years in development, the movie is finally with a release date for March 2023. The initial impression of many fans and enthusiasts was that the movie would be carrying a heavy and serious or dark fantasy tone. However, the movie is completely engaging, judging from the trailer. There is a layer of comedy to the presentation of the various characters. Evidently, the 2 minutes and 15 seconds video gives the audience an idea of how the characters would exchange barbs.

Assuming a usual D&D Party, Pine is a bard, Rodriguez is a barbarian, Justice Smith is a sorcerer, Page is a paladin and Lillis is a druid. In the story, the party is a band of thieves meaning to correct their wrongdoing. Apparently, in their previous mission, they ended up releasing a great evil upon the land.

John Francis Daley wrote the movie and directed it with Jonathan Goldstein. Daley and Goldstein were also the tandem directors for the comedy movies Game Night and Vacation. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is produced by Jeremy Latcham, Brian Goldner and Nick Meyer, with executive producers Denis L. Stewart, Goldstein, Daley, Pine, Zev Foreman and Greg Mooradian.

During the panel event, Pine shared that even though he wasn’t a heavy player of D&D, his nephew apparently is. He shares:

It was an amazing thing to see all my family light up in that way. It slowly snowballed and three hours in, you forgot that you didn’t want to. [It’s] one game that should be played in every single high school in the nation. You can get the bully and the jock — of course, I only speak in John Hughes terms — and I guarantee you no one will remember what class they came from.

I just wanted to spread the gospel of ‘D&D’

Companies carrying the production credits to the movie are Entertainment One and Sweetpea Entertainment. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves arrives in theaters on March 3, 2023.
