So, it looks like there might be a Dungeons & Dragons 2 in the works! Chris Pine, who starred in Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, has teased that he’s “pretty confident” about the possibility of a sequel happening.
“I’ve heard some rumors about it,” Pine said. “But I don’t know anything yet. But I feel pretty confident that it may happen.” When asked if he would return to reprise his role of Egdin Darvis, Pine responded, “Absolutely.”
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves might not have been a box-office hit, but it did receive some positive reviews. Pine believes this is enough to justify a sequel, and it looks like he’s not the only one who thinks so.
What the Studio Thinks
Paramount Pictures CEO Brian Robbins has admitted that while Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves didn’t do as well as they hoped, a sequel is still possible; the studio just needs “to figure out a way to make it for less.”
So, it seems like the potential sequel is still in consideration, despite the financial performance of the first film. This is good news for fans of the franchise who are eagerly awaiting more D&D action on the big screen.
What the Critics Say
Despite its lukewarm box-office reception, our own JimmyO found himself won over by Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, saying it was “far more fun” than he’d anticipated. “While it may not be perfect, the excellent cast and the charming script make it one of the most cheerful early surprises of 2023,” JimmyO wrote in his review. “It’s funny, adventurous, entertaining, and does a good enough job of creating a world worthy of revisiting in a sequel.”
With such positive feedback from critics and fans, it’s no wonder that the potential for a sequel is being taken seriously. The first film may not have been a smash hit, but it seems like it has garnered enough support for another installment.
What’s in Store for Dungeons & Dragons 2?
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves brought the rich world and playful spirit of the legendary roleplaying game to the big screen in a hilarious and action-packed adventure. The story follows “A charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers [who] undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic, but things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people.” The star-studded cast includes Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, Chloe Coleman, Daisy Head, and Hugh Grant.
With such a talented and diverse cast, the potential for a sequel is an exciting prospect for fans of the first film. The colorful and fantastical D&D universe is ripe for further exploration, and the success of the first film’s blend of humor, adventure, and action has set the stage for more cinematic escapades.
It looks like there’s a lot of optimism surrounding the potential for a Dungeons & Dragons 2. Despite the mixed reception of the first film, the enthusiasm of the cast and crew, as well as the positive reviews from critics and fans, indicate that there’s a good chance we’ll be seeing more D&D on the big screen. Whether it’s a heist, a quest, or an epic battle, the world of Dungeons & Dragons is brimming with possibilities for future adventures, and it seems like we might just get to see some of them in a sequel.
