    Matt: "I still want to hold on to some characters that I have a connection with." Hmm...sounds like that could've come right after him saying he's not voicing a certain shopkeep. So y'all prepare yourself for that possiblity.

  • S1LANC

    So i think Matt will definetly voice Sylas, Gilmore and the crazy gunpowder seller. Maybe he will voice thordak.

    This is gonna come out when Hytale does. Amazon isn't even advertising the damn thing. I think it is a secret train wreck.

    i was soooo chuffed when i heard my voice acting waifu was voice directing. love Mary in everything she does.

  • JayKat7_

    Judging by recent tabletops they’ve done, I’m thinking they can start recording together again. They just gotta stay 6 feet apart! 😸

    I’m so glad I got into Crit Role in the last month and a half. I’ve found The Mighty Nein easier to get into purely bc the campaign started at the very beginning, but I’m super looking forward to this bc I really want to understand VM

    I don't know how I feel about this casting. I think they could have gotten people that embodied the characters a little better. It just seems like these guys don't really understand the characters that well.

    I'm really sad they redid the voices.. you'll NEVER capture the same emotion or weight to any of the events, from the little bit that's been shown(from the c2 recaps) the humor won't be natural and will sound fake..... idk... if fans can make animations using the existing audio surely they could've done something...

    • Belinda Luna
      Belinda Luna

      Yeah, we totally want the worse audio quality and the performers talking over each other. And the performers totally want that too. Like, dude, no.

    2:56 Just mentioning that it was 9 of them at the point of this footage and they have perfectly edited it to avoid showing Orion. Not blaming them seems like he wasn't good for the group but he was part of the pre stream game and I think it would be a shame to not at least admit it.

    • Belinda Luna
      Belinda Luna

      A lot of fans started with Campaign 2. Explaining Orion's whole situation to people who never saw him play would take too much time and oxygen away from what they want to talk about.

  • Starsaber

    So, what characters other than Silas do we think Matt will be voicing? Victor is the only must-have for me, but Sovereign Uriel would make a lot of sense too.

    For everyone wondering when the show will come out, I think the fact they released two of these "Legend of" videos in the span of a month should be some comfort. Even more than that though, at the end of the Vox Machina vs Mighty Nein video Matt said it's coming soon. I don't think he would say it that with that amount of excitement if it was still 9 months off from the recording of that episode back in June. My guess is late 2021

  • MrJechgo

    On a brighter note, if the Mighty Nein gets an adaptation, which arc should be considered ;) ?

  • SirAuronPD

    I wonder if Orion Acaba would be back for anything....

    It's sad to me that (I'm pretty sure) Matt won't be voicing Gilmore, but I get that he's uncomfortable voicing a person of color.

    I cannot wait to get to watch this, own it, rewatch it, get behind the scene moments, and then watch it again. Its crazy how hungry I am to support this and for it to come out. I just wish i had more friends to get excited about it and watch it together :/

  • NinjaMonkey774

    I’m so excited for this! Honestly when they announced this was gonna be on Amazon Prime Video that was my motivation to get a subscription. I’ve found other things I enjoy watching on there, but this is what it’s all building up to!

  • Tre Wilder

    I put off on Critical Roll when it first started, because I wasn't into DnD then. But my first thought was that I knew how amazing it would be, with so many talented voice actors I grew up hearing all playing this improv-styled game with each other.. Last year I started my first DnD campaign with some friends over Discord, and it's been FANTASTIC. Imagine my surprise when I found out that their was a Cleric Gnome in VM, just like my first character! I'm now 44 parts into Vox Machina, and I'm totally on board for a series of these loveable idiots together! I hope I finish binging before the show comes out!

  • Jedskee

    Gilmore for Matt!

  • Jedskee

    How many times did Sam say they were 8 friends?

    • MrJechgo

      Enough to hammer down that they don't want to think about Orion anymore...

  • ClayBCtime

    I know we can’t have Matt play every NPC for obvious reasons, but I think it would be hilarious if they did some type of episode where he did

  • LazySketcher

    These guys are living the dream - and deservedly so :’)

    IMO the most entertaining and impressive component of the Podcast is the voice work but the incredible improvisation (Sam, Travis + NPC = gold...). Not sure how this magic translates to a scripted animated series, but I am hoping for the best.

    I know this would have been a: impractical and b: clashing with the more traditional format of a TV show, but it would have been wonderful and hilarious if Matt was still voicing all of the NPCs.

  • Rickie155

    It's not even been THAT long since the end of campaign 2, and I'm missing these guys so much already!

  • xMrxWhitexRabbitx

    Honestly.... I think the wait is good! I used to read manga and watch the anime simultaneously and havig it so fresh in my mind kinda took away the magic. I remember with Naruto I stopped watching for a while, then when I went back I fell in love all over again because I could truly appreciate the subtleties and the neuance picked up in the different form of media... I can't wait to experience this in a different form... And share with friends who may e aren't prepared to go watch 100+ 4 hours stream shows 🤣

    I feel like this will one of those projects that you can just feel are special. There's so much passion and heart put into everything. It's the kind of gem that has to adapt and change and still manages to keep their core essence.

  • OneWingedAngelsBand

    Bloopers and Matt talking to himself have been mentioned. But you know what else is needed? Scanlan's songs complete with a backing track and a music video feel. That would make it perfect. 😅
