Not every movie can do a great job of showcasing fantastical beasts, and perhaps, the locations where one might encounter them. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, however, looks to remedy that. Unlike previous attempts at D&D movies, this take appears to finally have the budget to depict some of the more unique and beloved monsters from the long-running role-playing game franchise.
There’s the owlbear, which is pretty much what it sounds like. The mimic, which looks like a tempting object (say, a treasure chest), but opens to reveal a mouth full of fangs. Gelatinous cubes are always favorites. Perhaps lesser-known is the displacer beast, with its tentacles and cloaking abilities. And the intellect devourer, which will no doubt inspire many film critics to make obvious jokes about consuming the brain.
All these creatures appear in a new highlight reel, introduced by the cast. And yes, of course there’s a dragon at the end. Take a look below:
