Critical Role and fantasy fans will be delighted to learn that the opening titles for The Legend of Vox Machin are now online. Amazon Prime Video debuted the sweeping opening title sequence for The Legend of Vox Machina as part of a virtual New York Comic Con panel with the creators and cast of Critical Role, who also serve as executive producers on the series.
The animated series began life as a joke on the regular D&D live-stream (available on YouTube and Twitch). As a prove that cast member Sam Riegel can’t leave a good idea alone, the gag ran and ran until it became a Kickstarter for a 22-minute animated short. The crowd-funder was so sucessful that rather than a simple test reel, we have got a 24-episode series, currently in production via the award winning studio Titmouse and Amazon Prime.
The Legend of Vox Machina follows a group of neophyte adventurers on a quest to save the realm from terrifying monsters and dark magical forces. Throughout the first season, our characters will face undead giants, overthrow a sinister necromancer, and confront a powerful curse that has taken root inside their own group.
The series stars Critical Role founders and cast members Laura Bailey (The Last of Us: Part II), Taliesin Jaffe (Final Fantasy XIV), Ashley Johnson (The Last of Us), Liam O’Brien (Star Wars: The Bad Batch), Matthew Mercer (Overwatch), Marisha Ray (Final Fantasy XV), Sam Riegel (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and Travis Willingham (Marvel's Avengers). The Critical Role cast also serves as executive producers alongside Brandon Auman (Star Wars: Resistance) and Chris Prynoski (Metalocalypse).
The adult animated fantasy-adventure series will be available in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. The show will be on Amazon Prime from February 4, 2022.
