‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Movie latest news

Wizards of the Coast promises ‘exclusive reveals’ for the ever-expanding world of D&D before the movie release

Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley’s upcoming Dungeons & Dragons movie will be called Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, Paramount and eOne announced today.

Dungeons & Dragons is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game created by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, which was first published by Tactical Studies Rules, Inc. in 1974, and has been distributed by Hasbro subsidiary Wizards of the Coast since 1997. The plot of the film starring Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, Chloe Coleman, Daisy Head and Hugh Grant has thus far been kept under wraps.

Goldstein, Daley and Michael Michael Gilio adapted the screenplay from a story by Chris McKay and Gilio, which was itself based on Hasbro’s game. Jeremy Latcham, Brian Goldner and Nick Meyer are producing, with Denis L. Stewart, Goldstein, Daley, Pine, Zev Foreman and Greg Mooradian exec producing the film, set for release on March 3, 2023.

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves‘ release weekend is currently wide open. A TV adaptation of the classic RPG game, spearheaded by Red Notice helmer Rawson Marshall Thurber, is also in the works at eOne.

Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast will livestream the inaugural D&D Direct, a Nintendo Direct-style livestream dedicated to all things Dungeons & Dragons, on Thursday, April 21. Wizards promises “exclusive reveals” across the tabletop role-playing game’s many mediums, including books, video games, entertainment, and, of course, the RPG itself. D&D’s maker also teases “a few surprises” during D&D Direct.

D&D Direct kicks off at 12 p.m. EDT/9 a.m. PDT, and will stream live on the official Dungeons & Dragons YouTube and Twitch channels. The show will run approximately 30 minutes, and Wizards of the Coast describes it as “jam-packed.”

We have a good sense of what D&D Direct might cover, which includes at least one new book, Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel, and live-action adaptations of the franchise in both movie and TV show form. There are also two video games: Baldur’s Gate 3, which is still in early access, and an as-yet untitled third-person open-world game from Hidden Path Entertainment.

D&D 5th Edition may also see the return of the Spelljammer and Dragonlance settings, based on hints from Wizards itself. Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast may also have more to say about the future of D&D Beyond, the popular digital toolset and online storefront it purchased last week.
