March 1, 2019 – Critical Role, the most popular tabletop roleplaying show in the world, has partnered with animation powerhouse Titmouse (Big Mouth, Venture Bros., Marvel’s Black Panther), launching a Kickstarter to make an epic animated special titled The Legend of Vox Machina, based on Critical Role’s hugely popular first campaign. To add another layer of pure awesome, Jennifer Muro (Spider-Man, Justice League Action, Star Wars Forces of Destiny) has signed on to help pen the project. This 22-minute (maybe longer!) adult action-comedy series will be created in the fantasy universe of — and starring characters from — Critical Role. It’s Guardians of the Galaxy meets Dungeons & Dragons.
Critical Role is giving the power to the community to help make this animated special a reality. In partnership with super mega badass animation studio Titmouse, they will launch a 45-day crowdfunding campaign, which will aim to fully fund this special. The campaign will offer contributing fans unique and exclusive merchandise, opportunities and behind-the-scenes experiences along the way.
Campaign launch: Monday, March 4th
Campaign close: Thursday, April 18th at 11:59pm Pacific
Goal: As we reach higher funding levels, we’ll be able to “add on” 22-minute segments.
The Legend of Vox Machina Synopsis
The Avengers are a mighty team. The X-men follow a brilliant leader, the Fantastic 4 are a tight family. Our heroes are NONE of those things. They’re seven loners, outcasts — a bunch of sh*thead sellswords and wands-for-hire who, while literally drunk, accidentally save the town’s ruler and are given their first “grown up” mission. A mission that forces them to live together and pits them against dangerous and legendary beasts — eventually transforming them into a band of adventurers called Vox Machina.
They will become heroes…. If they don’t murder each other first.
