The Legend of Vox Machina
After years of watching the crew of Critical Role playing Dungeons & Dragons, they launched an animated fantasy adventure series The Legend of Vox Machina based on their beloved characters and adventures.
Yup, it maintains their crazy hijinks, jokes, and their fondness of boozing a brawling.
The story is based on a band of misfits, who need a sense of adventure in order to pay off their mounting bar tab. These unlikely heroes end up on a quest to save the realm of Exandria from dark magical forces. From a sinister necromancer to a powerful curse, the group confronts a variety of obstacles that not only test their skills but also the strength of their bond.
The series stars the Critical Role founders and cast members that includes 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).

No doubt that fans of Critical Role have been waiting to bring their fantasy storytelling onto the animation realm in one form or another. As one of the top Twitch and YouTube platforms, they have a very passionate fanbase and I will definitely be one of them in watching this series.
The first season consists of 12 episodes, with three episodes premiering every week starting January 28 in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide through Amazon Prime Video.
