Critical Role Breaks Kickstarter GoalReported on Monday, April 22nd 2019
Nearly 90,000 Kickstarter backers turned Critical Role's Kickstarter for an animated project into the platform's fifth most-funded campaign of all time.
Originally planned as an animated special, the $11 million in funding will assure 10 animated episodes and a oneshot with GM Ashley Johnson.
The series, The Legend of Vox Machina, will retell the original 2015-2017 DND campaign portrayed on the show, animated by Titmouse and scripted by Jennifer Muro. The cast of the campaign, consisting of established voice actors Matthew Mercer, Travis Willingham, Laura Bailey, Sam Riegel, Liam O'Brien, Ashley Johnson, Taliesin Jaffe, and Marisha Ray, will naturally lead the way, promised to be accompanied by a bevy of other guests and VO industry icons.
Critical Role officially started in 2015, with its second campaign beginning in January last year. The series is currently planned for Fall 2020.
