Dungeons and Dragons 2 release date speculation, cast, plot, and news

We had so much fun with the DnD movie that we're already counting down to Chris Pine's return for the Dungeons and Dragons 2 release date.

Dungeons and Dragons 2 release date

It’s time to gather up your adventuring party, because Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves has kickstarted a renewed cinematic obsession with the Forgotten Realms. That means we expect a Dungeons and Dragons 2 release date will be just a matter of time. No roll of the dice required.

The hugely enjoyable Dungeons & Dragons movie, Honor Among Thieves, kicked open a treasure chest of possibilities with its tale of the fugitive bard Edgin and his quest for an ancient relic. It’s one of our favorite new movies of 2023, as we wrote in our Dungeons and Dragons review. So naturally, we’re taking a keen interest in the future and we’ve rounded up all of the latest news.

Dungeons and Dragons 2 release date speculation

Chris Pine really wants to make Dungeons and Dragons 2, so we think it could come our way as soon as 2026.

Pine is game for more, telling GamesRadar that he’s “absolutely” on board. He added: “I don’t know anything yet, but I feel pretty confident that it may happen.” Edgin is in, and so are we!

There was so much love for one of the best fantasy movies of 2023 that we know there would be audience desire for a sequel. However, there’s a potential obstacle. Dungeons and Dragons failed to ignite the box office as much as the studio would have hoped.

Still, everything deserves a second chance, especially when the first movie was such a hit with those who did see it. Directing duo Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley gave us one of the best comedy movies in years with Game Night, and they brought the laughs again with DnD.

Movies of this size take a while to make, so we’d say it’s unlikely that Dungeons and Dragons 2 will come our way before 2026. But we’ll be ready and waiting when Edgin sings his way back into cinemas.

Dungeons and Dragons 2 cast speculation

The Dungeons and Dragons 2 cast will bring back Chris Pine ad Edgin, along with Michelle Rodriguez, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, and Chloe Coleman.

Pine is very keen for another go at this universe and Goldstein said he wants the main cast to return for a sequel so they can dig even deeper into fantastical storytelling.

“The audience knows them, and you can jump into the plot more quickly,” he told Polygon. “And obviously, we have great affection for both the actors and these roles that they play. But we’d want to introduce some new figures along the way, and certainly a lot of new monsters.”

Speaking of monsters (of the human variety), Hugh Grant as Forge was a highlight of the first movie. While we expect a bunch of new villains in a follow-up movie, we hope that he returns in some aspect – either as another baddie or as a character seeking redemption.

It is unlikely that Daisy Head as Sofina will return, but we also are willing to bet that new Red Wizards will replace her in a sequel too. Or perhaps, the Red Wizards will be getting a fresh bunch of allies? While filming Honor Among Thieves, extras dressed as the Cult of the Dragon were spotted in full costume. So, who knows, maybe we will get a new set of the best movie villains in Dungeons and Dragons 2. Stay tuned for updates.

Although he wasn’t a major player in Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, thanks to his connection with the Harpers and intriguing backstory, Regé-Jean Page as Xenk will likely return too.

Here is the potential Dungeons and Dragons 2 cast list:

  • Chris Pine as Edgin
  • Michelle Rodriguez as Holga Kilgore
  • Chloe Coleman as Kira Darvis
  • Justice Smith as Simon Aumar
  • Sophia Lillis as Doric
  • Regé-Jean Page as Xenk Yendar
  • Hugh Grant as Forge Fitzwilliam

What will Dungeons and Dragons 2 be about?

After their happy ending last time around, Dungeons and Dragons 2 will have to introduce a new threat and a new town to help,  just like your typical DnD campaign.

In the last movie, we saw the gang becoming the heroes of Neverwinter, so we expect to see them venture off and start collecting those titles around the Forgotten Realms. There are also plenty of character stories that could be unpacked in a follow-up movie. Doric’s home is still recovering from Forge’s deforestation antics, and Xenk Yendar, the paladin, has to deal with the Red Wizards trying to take over the world again.

And then there are the Harpers. It seems like Edgin is keen to leave his life of crime behind, and if that is the case, does that mean he will rejoin the Harpers for good? Or will we see him revert back to his old ways and drag his friends back into trouble with the law?

There are plenty of avenues that Dungeons and Dragons 2 could take, including a potential Forge jailbreak story. Either way, we are hopefully optimistic that Paramount will order a follow-up to one of its best adventure movies and kick-start a franchise! Keep your eyes on this page, as we will update you on the latest news.

Dungeons and Dragons 2 trailer speculation

There’s no trailer for Dungeons and Dragons 2 because no official work has begun on the potential sequel.

Don’t get too sad, though. You can still check out this awesome behind the scenes video from the first movie. We immediately fell in love with this world, and that love only got deeper when we could see how much work went in to making everything look as impressive as it does.
