Ahh the coveted excitement of Hall H is back. Fully packed with excited fans, Dungeons & Dragons opened San Diego Comic-Con 2022.
Paramount and eOne’s Dungeons & Dragons was the first major studio production to hit Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con in three years! The hall was packed and as always the sneak peeks and reveals left fans in awe. Dungeons & Dragons also marks Hugh Grant’s first ever SDCC appearance. Masked convention attendees inside Hall H, were delighted by behind-the-scenes footage from the Northern Ireland set that shared stars Chris Pine, Regé-Jean Page and Michelle Rodriguez clad in leather and armor and riding horses, fantastical creatures from the D&D universe, and massive fight sequences.
During the panel the movie’s directors, Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley — the duo behind sleeper hit Game Night — talked about their personal history with the game. “I have been an avid player since I was 14 years old when I acted on the show Freaks & Geeks,” said Daley, to generous applause. “Anyone who plays D&D knows it’s not just a game. It is the feeling you get when you play the game.”
While not alot of story details were revealed we do know that we’ll be following a cohort of thieves, of varying skills and power. The D&D tabletop game is known for its treasure hunts, camaraderie and reversals of fortune, all in a fantasy setting that combines humans, elves, orcs and hundreds of other creatures. Plot details for the film have long been kept under wraps, and not much was given away during the panel. “There is a lot of questing in the movie, I can tell you that,” said producer Jeremy Latcham. Added Daley, “There are a ton of Easter eggs loaded in there.”
