Chris Pine Is "Pretty Confident" That Dungeons & Dragons 2 Will Happen

Chris Pine is "pretty confident" that there will be a sequel to 2023's underrated gem, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.

Article Summary

  • Chris Pine hints at a possible 'Dungeons & Dragons' sequel with confidence.
  • The first film ended with solid critic and fan praise despite box office struggle.
  • Pine, playing bard Edgin, expresses keenness to reprise his role.
  • Strong audience reception could sway studios for a sequel despite earnings.

In terms of underrated movies that deserved better than they got at the box office, Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves might be near the top of the list. The film came out at the end of March, and unfortunately for this film, the world caught Super Mario fever less than a week later. From there, it was essentially dead in the water in terms of getting anything in its later weeks. The film ended its box office with just over $200 million worldwide, but in terms of reception, very positive from both critics and fans alike. This was yet another good film that was liked by the few who saw it. Now that the strikes are both done, and studios have come around to the idea that actors and writers are worth paying livable wages, people have been able to do promo for their movies, and Chris Pine is currently doing the rounds for Wish.

However, Total Film is on this writer's side and asked whether Pine knew anything about a follow-up to Dungeons & Dragons. Pine went on to say, "I've heard some rumors about it. But I don't know anything yet. But I feel pretty confident that it may happen." Confidence is essential, and actors don't usually use the word 'confident' unless they think something will happen. Pine, who played the bard and leader of our group of thieves in the movie Edgin, was also asked if he would return to the role and said, "Absolutely."

As previously stated, it seemed like anyone who saw this movie ended up really liking it, and sometimes that is enough for studios to look beyond a box office that wasn't that great. If they see potential, maybe it will be given another chance, and there is absolutely potential for this version of Dungeons & Dragons. You could feel the love for the source material in every frame, but it also wasn't so enamored with it that they couldn't poke fun or make changes where they had to. Also, who doesn't love a good found family dynamic?
