Dust off your 20-sided dice, because we’ve got the newest trailer for the Dungeons & Dragons documentary The Great Kingdom to share with you this morning.
It seems unlikely that Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson could have imagined just how popular their tabletop fantasy role-playing game would become when they released it into the world back in 1974, but this upcoming feature looks to reveal how D&D affected not only the men who created it, but entire generations of fans.
Based on the trailer, The Great Kingdom appears to give us an “inside baseball” look at the two men behind the game and how they eventually lost control of the company to some “chaotic evil” interlopers as it became increasingly more successful. It’s a nerd fantasy in a lot of ways – a tale of guys who took their passion for something that wasn’t particularly mainstream at the time, and became successful beyond their wildest dreams. However, like all good cautionary tales, it’s also filled with the inevitable fall that seems to come after the meteoric rise. We love documentaries like this.
There’s no official release date announced for The Great Kingdom, but you can keep up to speed on the latest announcements concering the film by checking out its Facebook page.
Enjoy the trailer.
