There is little doubt that Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is one of the most highly anticipated films of the year. But that's also not an entirely good thing considering that people have certain expectations about the movie. Still, co-directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley want fans to know that the upcoming feature will capture the spirit of playing the game.
Honor Among Thieves has already been established to be a film on its own since it features original characters. Nevertheless, the movie is expected to give non-gamers a glimpse of the universe they have been missing out on.
Co-directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley recently spoke to IGN to discuss Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. At one point, Goldstein shared their joint vision for the film.
"John and I really set out to make a movie that captured the spirit of playing a game of DnD," he said. "We’re not really using any existing story or characters, with the exception of Szass Tam, our big villain. This is pretty much all of our own creation, but we’re putting it in a world that comes from 50 years of the lore of Dungeons & Dragons."
"The monsters, the creatures, the magic, the locations, all of that you will see portrayed, but we’re not trying to bog you down if you don’t know anything about DnD if you’ve never played it as well," Goldstein continued.
It certainly sounds like Honor Among Thieves is going to be a great introduction to Dungeons & Dragons. With that in mind, we can't wait to see it in theaters.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley. The ensemble cast includes Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, Daisy Head, and Hugh Grant. The film will also feature the cast of the Dungeons & Dragons web series Critical Role in cameo roles.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves hits theaters on March 31, 2023.
