Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Welcome to the new edition of the OTC Blog. Paramount Pictures announced they would be releasing a reboot with an all-star cast. What do Chris Pine, Thora Birch, and Jeremy Irons have in common? As of March of 2023, all will have played characters in a Dungeons and Dragon movie. The original trilogy included Dungeon & Dragon, Wrath of the Dragon God, and The Book of Vile Darkness which were released between 2000-2012. Sadly the movies were not a cinematic hit and disappointed fans. We are hopeful that the new reboot will give us DnD fans the movie we deserve.
The roleplaying game, Dungeons and Dragons has been the inspiration for many films. Whether the heroes are battling beasts from other realms or being sent on a quest for the Gods. The influence of DnD can easily be seen throughout the history of cinema. Here is a shortlist of films that I believe capture the imagination of the roleplaying we all love.

Lord of the Ring- The Two Towers
Lord of the Rings- The Return of the King
The Hobbit- The Unexpected Journey
