Will the New Dungeons and Dragons Movie Stack Up?

The most famous role-playing game franchise in the world will be soon getting a new movie. Of course, I’m talking about Dungeons and Dragons. Following the box-office bust that was the 2000 Dungeons and Dragons movie, Warner Brothers is ready to take another swing. As an aside, this will be the first theatrically released DnD movie since 2000, and there have been three direct-to-video sequels released.

The movie will be developed through Warner Brothers. Besides having Harry Potter, DC Comics, and Legos, Dungeons and Dragons and the accompanying world are potentially a huge asset for WB, with an infinite number of possibilities for an entire cinematic universe. The movie’s main inspirations will be Guardians of the Galaxy and Lord of the Rings, said Roy Lee, the new movie’s producer. David Leslie Johnson, known for the movies Orphan and Wrath of the Titans, has already written the script.

The first movie will be set in the Forgotten Realms, whereas other future movies would belong to other realms in the DnD world. The Forgotten Realms are a campaign setting for the tabletop game, and it is just one of many, some others being Greyhawk, Dragonlance, and Ravenloft. Lee added that the movie will faithfully stick to the source material, but would also include new material created with the help of Wizards of the Coast, an American game publisher that owns the Dungeons and Dragons rights. Another interesting feature will be that the movie’s characters will be locals, not someone from Earth who got teleported to the Forgotten Realms.

There is currently no information regarding release dates or even possible dates when production would begin. In addition, no casting details have been revealed, with the only known information being what the producer had said about the setting and the script writer.
