Dungeons & Dragons Movie – July 23, 2021

On Monday, Paramount announced a number of movies that will be released over the new few years, including the G.I. Joe, Micronauts and Dungeons & Dragons. The news comes after the recent expanded production and distribution deal between Paramount and Hasbro (parent of Wizards of the Coast who makes D&D).

The Dungeons & Dragons movie will come out on July 23, 2021.

Not much news was provided other than the date, but we already know (or think we know) that the movie will be:

  • produced by Roy Lee (Lego Movie)
  • directed bu Rob Letterman (Goosebumps, Monsters vs. Aliens, Shark Tale)
  • written by Joe Manganelio (Magic Mike, DCU’s Deathstroke and various live action D&D games)

We covered the D&D movie in previous posts:

Let the speculation begin. Will this movie be set in the Realms? Will they finally make a decent Dragonlance movie?

Get in line for your tickets now!

    I’m cautiously optimistic for this. Given the Hasbro movies of the last ten years, it’s not likely to be a low-budget farce. And unlike the Hasbro movies of the last ten years, it seems like the creative reins are in the hands of people who understand and respect the game and its lore.

    Licensed movies have been generally pretty good lately so… maybe? And I do like the producer…

      I am hopeful. I am pretty sure it has to be better than previous D&D movies.

      My concern is Battleship and the latest Transformers movies.

      It’s going to be hard not to be better than the previous D&D movies.

      The latest TF movies were awful I agree, but, just like Battleship, they did provide a reason to go to the theater to watch it. Hopefully, they is not going to be the case with the new D&D movie.
