    For those hoping for a new D&D cartoon, Critical Role has just launched a Kickstarter for an animated show based on their livestream campaign. It broke a million dollars in about an hour, and has 45 days left to go...

    It sounds like they approached some Hollywood producers about this project, but didn't like the offers they received and turned to crowdfunding instead.

    I don't want to read too much into that, but given how quickly it was funded on Kickstarter....well. At the very least, it makes me wonder if those people in Hollywood fully understand CR's target audience.

    They are over 2 million dollars Canadian, or 1.6 million USD. And climbing fast, at this rate they could out do the Veronica Mars movie.

    http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/cri...na-animated-s/

    Kicktraq has it trending towards $73,740,133. I think 5 million to 20 million is more realistic, max 30 million.

    Still what would they do if they did get say 73 million dollars, I mean that is summer blockbuster movie level money with less expenses? How many times can they add 22 more minutes before it turns into a TV show?

    Kicktraq is always wildly inaccurate for the first week. Itll settle down its prediction to something much lower in a few days. It simply projects the days pledges and assumes the same number every day, but Kickstarters dont work like that .

    Could this be the DnD movie we always dreamed of?

    Man, that little money wheel is screaming. They could make a whole series to rival the original D&D cartoon. Does Matt look like Dungeon Master, or is it just me.

    Do they even have the legal rights to do a D&D movie or could this end up in the courts? I mean I can't see Warner Bros. Being okay with this or Hasbro if they aren't getting a cut of the money.
