Shadow & Bone's Daisy Head was reported to have joined the cast of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves last year, but her role remains undisclosed at the time of writing. 

At Comic-Con, we also learned that cast members from the hugely popular Dungeons & Dragons actual play web series Critical Role (opens in new tab) are set to make cameo appearances in the movie. Characters that resemble those from the 1983 Dungeons & Dragons animated TV series are also set to crop up throughout the film.

What's the plot?

A plot summary from Paramount Pictures released alongside the trailer (more on that later) reads:

"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. Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves brings the rich world and playful spirit of the legendary roleplaying game to the big screen in a hilarious and action-packed adventure."

Is there a trailer?

Yep! The trailer gives us the impression that Honor Among Thieves will be equal parts action-comedy and fantasy epic. It transports us to a fantasy realm and introduces us to our band of adventurers, who plan to put a stop to the greatest evil the world has ever known... an evil that they just so happen to be responsible for releasing. 

Throughout, you'll get a taste of every single adventurer's powers, spot a range of beautiful locales and spot a whole host of deadly monsters from the D&D universe. Check it out below:

Paramount also released a title announcement teaser earlier this year, which you also see here:
