Dungeons & Dragons is a fantasy role-playing game that has enjoyed a devoted following since its debut in the mid-1970s. It has a long history, having faced criticism in the 1980s for making satanic claims with no evidence. Despite this, the game withstood the test of time. New campaigns and players keep appearing every year. And it also gained more mainstream appeal with the hit series Stranger Things.

Now, Dungeons & Dragons is appearing on the big screen for the first time in decades. Game Night directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are set to release Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. The new film will star Chris Pine(Star Trek), as well as Justice Smith(Detective Pikachu) and Sophia Lillis(It).

The plot revolves around a group of criminals who spark a deadly war by stealing the wrong relic. It is now up to them to put things right and prevent an evil entity from taking over the land. According to the trailer, the film will release on March 3, 2023. But audiences will be able to get to know the ragtag group a month before they reach the big screen.
