D&D 5E Hasbro’s Dungeons & Dragons TV and Movie Strategy

Squid games give me hopes for an interesting MouseTrap game show.

Overall, this looks like the shotgun approach - launch enough stuff at the dartboard, and something will be a hit.

I'm extremely disappointed with the recent Snake-eye Origin movie and I don't have a lot of faith that any of it is given much thought to televising these brands other than "Get something on screen!", i.e., it'll be a lot of low budget, poorly acted, half-baked crap that won't make it to a sequel or second season.
Indeed. One can hope that we will get good stories as part of this process. But, there is a great chance that there will simply be a lot of drek put out there.

If it makes money, the drek will continue. If wiser minds prevail, there will be focus on quality to preserve brands and make even more money. But if the money made hits targets set within the corporate environment, then quality may not matter much.

As I said upthread, canon will not be a determining factor on what is created.

Time will tell.

Cheers :)

Australian Survivor is about 10x more enjoyable to watch than US Survivor so that kind of exists too. The first Australian All Stars series is better than some scripted TV in terms of plot and dialogue lol.

….you don’t think reality tv is scripted?

Or, at a minimum, heavily plotted and edited for dramatic purposes?

(As an example, I was approached after buying a house to see if I wanted to appear on one of those home buying shows … so that I could “choose” the house I bought.)

Yeah I nearly pointed that out lol, either way Australian Survivor gets a lot less tedious and annoying than US Survivor (British Survivor only existed briefly and was awful).

Pretty sure they basically lead people to idols a couple of times at the very least re scripting though sometimes you can lead a man to an idol but he's still to dim to find it!

Well, I am going on a limb: whatever will come out of that, it just can not be worse than the W40K shows that Games Workshop is putting out for Warhammer+ ;)
 


i wonder what an unscripted D&D tv show would look like.

Nevermind. it's on my DVR right now. G4's Invitation to Party is on TV every Tuesday

How is there not a digital version yet? Coding would be simpler than Axis & Allies, and less weapons would be drawn in anger than physical Diplomacy
There are at least two online versions. I actually think the best way to play is online with 24 hrs between moves. Lets you get the diplo flowing before the cards are on the table.
 








If the movie producers knew the secret to create blockbusters, we wouldn't bombs in the hitbox, even Disney can fail.

Some board games can be family-friendly contest shows. It wouldn't be the first time.

Hasbro has got enough experience producing cartoons for children: My Little Pony, Pepa Pig, PJ Maks.

If 2022 is a year of flat cows (a bad economic season) then maybe some companies will by acquired for bigger fishes what want their IPs.

Intercompany crossovers are sold very good because they work like limited editions.

If D&D live-action productions make a lot of money, then other companies could try a partnership with littler RPG publishers, for example Pugmire(by Onyx Path) being a cartoon/CGI animation produced by Disney, or Warner parnershipting with Chaosium for an action-live adaptation of 7th Sea, to be the rival of Pirates of the Caribean.
