Ladies and gentlemen and fans across the world of Critical Role. Huge news has come down from the powers that be about Vox Machina’s animated adventures.
“Our friends at Amazon have partnered with us to broadcast Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina exclusively on Amazon Prime Video! And that’s not all… This partnership has allowed us to create TWO ENTIRE SEASONS and an additional TWO episodes per season. That’s a total of 24 episodes of animated Vox Machina goodness that we cannot wait to share with you.”
“What’s more, Amazon is throwing their support behind the show, allowing us to improve on the quality of the animation, the score, the special effects – you name it. And with 24 episodes to play with, instead of just 10, we’ll not only complete the entire Briarwood storyline in the animated series, but we’ll forge ahead into other classic Vox Machina story arcs as well!”
“Our lovely Kickstarter backers (hey, that’s YOU!) will still have an opportunity to watch the two-part special that kicks off the series before anyone else AND because you’re a backer, you’ll be able to access the first season for free. We’re still working out all of the logistical details and should have an update around how all of this will work in late 2020.”
The team at Critical Role have also announced a few more key players on their creative team, each mega-talented in their craft:
- Laura Bailey, Taliesin Jaffe, Ashley Johnson, Liam O’Brien, Matthew Mercer, Marisha Ray, Sam Riegel, and Travis Willingham (executive producers): Along with stepping back into their roles as the voices of Vox Machina, our cast will also serve as executive producers of the animated series.
- Brandon Auman (executive producer): You may know Brandon as the executive producer of Star Wars Resistance and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, as well as his writing on Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and the upcoming Blade Runner: Black Lotus.
- Chris Prynoski (executive producer, Titmouse): Chris is pretty much the guy that makes all the Titmouse magic happen and has played a major role in a bunch of cool animated projects, like Big Mouth, Niko and the Sword of Light, Tigtoneand The Venture Brothers.
- Sung Jin Ahn (supervising director): Sung Jin is an Emmy-Award nominated director and has worked alongside Chris as the director for Niko and the Sword of Light, as well as other incredible projects like Motorcity and TRON: Uprising.
That crazy little show was born on Twitch and they’re absolutely thrilled at the opportunity to continue to grow and develop deeper roots within the Amazon ecosphere.
If you’re one of the many, many, many people that helped kickstart this (like myself) how excited are you for the animated adventures of Vox Machina? I’ve adored Critical Role and personally can’t wait to see this passion project come to fruition.
