Your screens will be filled with the Legend of Vox Machina! A Kickstarter campaign of over $11 million pledged towards an animated series based on Campaign 1 of the Dungeons & Dragons web series Critical Role was very successful in 2019. This stream-based D&D game, presented by a group of friends, and hosted by a host of American voice actors, may be the most-known example of ‘actual play’ D&D, where players experience the dice rolling adventures at the table in real time. (We have a list of a few more available). Critical Role has come a long way since its cast members’ living rooms thanks to a 24-episode animated series set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video after the streaming giant stepped in following the Kickstarter success. There’s no doubt about it the launch of the Critical Role comic line, D&D show, and its own Twitch talk show is an exciting confirmation for fans of the game curious about the world of the game.

The Legend of Vox Machina: Who’s Involved?

As one would expect, this is the original campaign cast Their role in the animated series will be reprised by Vox Machina. This is facilitated by the fact that the whole cast are quite experienced voice actors themselves The cast’s outstanding credits include Laura Bailey voicing Kat in Gears 5, Ashley Johnson voicing Ellie in The Last of Us 2, Matt Mercer voicing Levi in Attack on Titan and McCree in Overwatch, and Sam Riegel voicing Phoenix Wright in Ace Attorney. We haven’t heard anything yet about guest appearances, but the Critical Role series many times features outside players for one-off games or small plot arcs. With Will Wheaton and Joe Manganiello appearing in Campaign 1, we can expect that to continue. Although there is no need to require guests to reprise their roles, we would expect them to do so when appropriate. Among the cast will be some special celebrity cameos as well as voice over industry legends. The animation studio behind it all is Titmouse, a company that produces animated programming In addition to the Netflix Original Big Mouth (starring John Mulaney) and The Midnight Gospel, the studio has produced some notable projects for the streaming service. Critical Role has announced that “the vast majority of our resources” (about 74%) will go directly to the animation budget for The Legend of Vox Machina. The film’s Art Director Arthur Loftis and Supervising Director Sung Jin Ahn are leading the team.

In Campaign 2, the following will be addressed Although the Mighty Nein is still raging at the time of this writing, it is expected to be concluded before the year is out. There have been a few comments from the cast about Campaign 3, so there will be plenty of D&D adventures to translate to TV. Although there isn’t likely to be any Mighty Nein animated series for a long time yet, the overwhelming response to the Kickstarter for Vox Machina suggests that animated adaptations of Critical Role’s ongoing stories have tremendous potential.
