The holidays are here and what a better way to celebrate the season then with the cast of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves as Hugh Grant gives his fellow cast members a special gift.
In Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, a charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic, but things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people.
The latest Dungeons & Dragons movie is being handled by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, the guys behind 2018’s Game Night.
The movie has no connection to the previous film trilogy, it’s based in the world of the tabletop game’s Forgotten Realms campaign which is described as a world of strange lands, dangerous creatures, and mighty deities, where magic and supernatural phenomena are quite real.
In the Forgotten Realms campaign, long ago, planet Earth and the world of the Forgotten Realms were more closely connected. As time passed, the inhabitants of Earth had mostly forgotten about the existence of that other world – hence the name Forgotten Realms.
The thieves are a bard named Elgin, a barbarian named Holga, a paladin called Xenk, a sorcerer named Simon and finally, a tiefling druid called Doric.
In an interview with Collider, Chris Pine who plays Elgin said that the movie is like “Game of Thrones mixed with a little Princess Bride and just a smidge of Holy Grail.” He continued, saying it’s “poppy, it’s eighties heartfelt, and there’s a bit of Goonies in there.”
Regé-Jean Page, from Bridgerton, takes the role of the Paladin. Justice Smith from Detective Pikachu takes on Simon the Sorcerer. Sophia Lillis, known for 2017’s It, is Doric, a tiefling Druid. And finally, rom-com superstar Hugh Grant is cast as Forge Fitzwilliam the Rogue.
