‘Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves’ Announced, Releases March 2023

Paramount Pictures’ upcoming Dungeon & Dragons film finally has a name – Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. Set to release on 3 March 2023, the name was revealed at the first-ever D&D Direct announcement showcase stream.

Here is the announcement video.

While there isn’t more than that, we know from an earlier interview with lead Chris Pine that the movie is a blend of high fantasy adventure and comedy. It will also be a reboot of the Dungeons & Dragons film series, a trilogy that began with 2000’s Dungeons & Dragons that frankly flopped at the box office.

And from the D&D Direct clip, we also know that it will be set in the Sword Coast region, which is where some of the more well-known cities of the Forgotten Realms are located, such as Baldur’s Gate, Waterdeep and Neverwinter. You can watch that part of the announcement below.

As a quick side note, in the same D&D Direct stream, we also learnt that Baldur’s Gate 3 will be leaving early access in 2023, Wizards of the Coast is reintroducing two classic D&D campaigns into 5E with Spelljammer: Adventures in Space and Dragonlance: Shadow of the Dragon Queen, and launching a new Dragonlance tactical board game, Warriors of Krynn.

As for the Dungeons & Dragons movie, its production has had quite an adventure so far. It began back in 2013 when both Hasbro and Warner Bros claimed rights to their version of the Dungeons & Dragons adaptation that they were both producing separately. The lawsuit was eventually settled in 2015, with the Warner Bros film set for pre-production with Hasbro.

Then in 2017, the film was moved by Hasbro to Paramount Pictures with a release date of 2021. It was subsequently delayed a couple of times due to scheduling conflicts and, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic.
