Here's Where You Can Stream 2000's Dungeons & Dragons Movie Online

"Dungeons & Dragons" is returning to the silver screen in 2023. Directed by "Game Night" helmers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, "Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves" is set to be another winner for the duo. Featuring an all-star cast that comprises Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Justice Smith, and Hugh Grant, the first trailer for "Honor Among Thieves" suggests the film will be lighthearted fantasy fare. "I've always described it as 'Princess Bride' meets Monty Python, meets the size and scope of 'Game of Thrones,'" said Pine in an interview with Collider. "It's my favorite kind of sensibility, that '80s-pop sensibility, that's fun, and light, and kinetic, and that has a lot of levity, obviously ... It's just good, old-fashioned fun storytelling."

"Dungeons & Dragons" as a franchise has seen a great revitalization in recent years. The game strongly influenced Netflix's "Stranger Things" and is prominently featured in Season 4 (via Tudum), which in turn has led to the masses becoming interested in the game (via CBC). This recent love for "Dungeons & Dragons" is great news for the upcoming fantasy epic, which should lead to some decent box office receipts for Paramount.

New fans, however, may be surprised to learn that "Honor Among Thieves" isn't the first live-action attempt at "Dungeons & Dragons." In fact, it's the franchise's fourth cinematic outing, with the trilogy dating back all the way to the 2000's. 

The OG Dungeons & Dragons is available for rent on several platforms

Like all "Dungeons & Dragons" campaigns, the story to get the first live-action film produced was an epic journey in its own right. Courtney Solomon was obsessed with the franchise and managed to nab the rights early into his career, trying to onboard directors like Francis Ford Coppola and James Cameron onto the project. (via Los Angeles Times). Solomon ultimately directed the film himself. The first entry eventually spawned two direct-to-DVD sequels: "Wrath of the Dragon God" and "The Book of Vile Darkness."

Those hoping to watch the first live-action "Dungeons & Dragons" film from 2000 will have to rent the film. The Jeremy Irons-starring movie is available for rent on several platforms for $2.99, including Apple TV, Prime Video, Google Play, YouTube, and more. Those hoping to own the original film can do so for $9.99 on the aforementioned platforms. Want a steal? Microsoft is giving the fantasy film away for $4.99.

The 2000 "Dungeons & Dragons" film currently holds a 10% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes. "It's an amusing movie to look at, in its own odd way, but close your eyes and the dialogue sounds like an overwrought junior high school play," wrote Roger Ebert in his 1½-star review of the film. Per Box Office Mojo, the fantasy epic ultimately grossed $33 million on a budget of $45 million. 2000 was a drastically different time for fantasy projects, and in a post-"Game of Thrones" and "Lord of the Rings" world, anticipation is at an all-time high for 2023's "Dungeons & Dragons."
