The Legend Of Vox Machina First Look Revealed (VIDEO)
As if it were almost unexpected for tabletop gaming and Dungeons & Dragons to see a resurgence in popularity in recent years, it has been just as surprising to see a show about people playing D&D become one of the most popular shows on the web. Critical Role accomplished just that with its cast of voice actors and knowledgeable DM Matthew Mercer. The franchise’s popularity has blown up to warrant merchandise, live shows, and a record-breaking crowdfunding campaign turning a planned animated special into a full-fledged animated series. Now the first look at The Legend of Vox Machina animated series has finally been revealed.
Amazon Prime has released a preview of the title sequence from The Legend of Vox Machina animated series on their official YouTube channel. The series will adapt adventures of Vox Machina, the diverse band of booze and brawl-loving adventurers, and the focus of Critical Role’s first campaign that lasted over a hundred episodes. While the main series has moved on from these characters, their adventures have expanded into everything from books, comics, and now, these new animated adventures.
Amazon Prime Video has also separately released a clip of the new Legends of Vox Machina animated series, with the real, returning voice cast dubbing over their characters’ lines in real-time. Among the returning characters seen are Laura Bailey as Vex’ahlia, Taliesin Jaffe as Percival de Rolo, Ashley Johnson as Pike Trickfoot, Liam O’Brien as Vax’ildan, Marisha Ray as Keyleth, Sam Riegel as Scanlan Shorthalt, and Travis Willingham as Grog Strongjaw.
Critical Role DM Matthew Mercer is also on hand to voice a random bar brawler who runs afoul of the group. It has been suggested that Mercer will voice a variety of the characters in the new series, which acknowledges his trend of providing different voices to NPCs in the original series. The animation of the new series looks like it quite well captures the vibrant and lively world that the Vox Machina campaign created, now brought to visual life in animation. Streaming on Amazon Prime Video, the new Legends of Vox Machina animated series is set to premiere on February 4th, 2022.
