Critical Role and Titmouse Launch Kickstarter to Create an Animated Special


Critical Role & Titmouse Launch Kickster to Create Animated Special The Legend of Vox Machina

The campaign, which launched March 4 at 10am PST, reached $1MM in less than an hour

Critical Role, the most popular tabletop roleplaying show in the world, and animation powerhouse Titmouse (Big Mouth, Venture Bros., Metalocalpyse) have launched a Kickstarter to make an epic animated special titled The Legend of Vox Machina, based on Critical Role’s hugely popular first campaign.  In addition, Jennifer Muro (Spider-Man, Justice League Action, Star Wars Forces of Destiny) has signed on to help pen the project.

This 22-minute (maybe longer!) adult action-comedy special will be created in the fantasy universe of — and starring characters from — Critical Role.  It’s Guardians of the Galaxy meets Dungeons & Dragons.

The 45-day crowdfunding campaign will offer contributing fans unique and exclusive merchandise, opportunities, and behind-the-scenes experiences along the way.  Campaign details as well as the animated special’s synopsis can be found below.

  • Campaign page: critrole.com/animated
  • Campaign launch: Monday, March 4th
  • Campaign close: Thursday, April 18th at 11:59pm Pacific
  • Goal: As higher funding levels are met, “add ons” will be made to the 22-minute segment.

The Legend of Vox Machina Synopsis
The Avengers are a mighty team.  The X-men follow a brilliant leader, the Fantastic 4 are a tight family.  Our heroes are NONE of those things.  They’re seven loners, outcasts — a bunch of sh*thead sellswords and wands-for-hire who, while literally drunk, accidentally save the town’s ruler and are given their first “grown up” mission.  A mission that forces them to live together and pits them against dangerous and legendary beasts — eventually transforming them into a band of adventurers called Vox Machina.

They will become heroes…. If they don’t murder each other first.
