Critical Role is a popular webseries featuring a group of voice actors playing Dungeons & Dragons. The show's cast includes Matthew Mercer, Marisha Ray, Liam O'Brien, Taliesin Jaffe, Ashley Johnson, Sam Riegel, and Travis Willingham. The show launched as part of Geek & Sundry's programming back in 2015, but eventually spun out into its own studio and production company. In 2019, Critical Role raised over $12 million to produce an animated series based on their first D&D campaign that focused on a group of heroes known as Vox Machina. Amazon Prime eventually picked up the animated series, titled The Legend of Vox Machina, and has already renewed it for a second season. Brandon Auman (Star Wars: Resistance) and Chris Prynoski (Metalocalypse) will also serve as executive producers of the new animated series, with Sung Jin Ahn (Niko and the Sword of Light) joining as supervising director. Titmouse Studios is serving as the animation partner for the show.
No release date has been announced for The Legend of Vox Machina, but Amazon Prime says that the series is "Coming Soon." Expect more on this announcement on ComicBook.com later this week.
