The release of the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons movie from Paramount and eOne has been delayed to Spring 2023. The blockbuster based on the popular tabletop game stars Christopher Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, and and Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page is now scheduled to be released in theaters on March 3, 2023
The film was originally set to release on November 19 and was pushed back to May 27, 2022, so this is the film's second release delay. Production for the film was scheduled to begin this spring in Ireland, but the studio hasn't announced if the release delay will impact production plans. Movie productions since 2020 have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and it's still unclear when movie theaters will re-open.
This delay will most likely impact the multiple D&D TV projects Hasbro's production company eOne was working on. They were originally planning to release one of the D&D TV projects shortly after the release of the movie.
The Dungeons & Dragons movie will be directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley. According to an earlier script, the movie would involve a party of adventurers seeking out the Eye of Vecna, an iconic artifact in the D&D lore. The film awill also star Huge Grant as the villain, IT actress Sophia Lillis, and Detective Pikachu star Justice Smith.
