Chris Pine has heard rumors of Dungeons & Dragons 2, adding that he’s “pretty confident” that the sequel will happen.
Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves may not have been a box-office success, but it did receive some pretty rave reviews, but is that enough to justify a sequel? Chris Pine believes so, as he recently teased Dungeons & Dragons 2 while speaking with GamesRadar.
“I’ve heard some rumors about it,” Chris Pine said of a possible Dungeons & Dragons 2. “But I don’t know anything yet. But I feel pretty confident that it may happen.” When asked if he would return to reprise his role of Egdin Darvis, Pine responded, “Absolutely.“
Dungeons & 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 which follows “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.” Chris Pine stars alongside Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, Chloe Coleman, Daisy Head, and Hugh Grant.
Paramount Pictures CEO Brian Robbins has admitted that while Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves didn’t do as well as they hoped, a sequel is still possible; the studio just needs “to figure out a way to make it for less.“
Our own JimmyO found himself won over by Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, saying it was “far more fun” than he’d anticipated. “While it may not be perfect, the excellent cast and the charming script make it one of the most cheerful early surprises of 2023,” JimmyO wrote in his review. “It’s funny, adventurous, entertaining, and does a good enough job of creating a world worthy of revisiting in a sequel. I wonder if those who make D&D a massive part of their lives will respond even more to the film. Watching Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, and the rest of this cast made this a pleasant moviegoing experience. It’s the kind of flick where you can enjoy popcorn and soda with a little fantasy-driven action, humor, and even a bit of sweetness on the big screen before you, thanks to this lively cast and script.” You can check out the rest of JimmyO’s review right here.
