D&D Movie/TV Photos from the D&D Movie Set

The D&D movie is currently filming at Alnwick Castle in Northumberland. A number of onlookers have posted photos from the set on Twitter, as has Newcastle's The Chronicle. Check the link for lots more! Alnwick was built in 1309, and has been used in Harry Potter and Downton Abbey, amongst other things.

I'm pretty sure that the robe is just to cover her costume.
You're almost certainly right of course, I didn't think of that. But I have to admit I'm kinda disappointed. The embroidered silk-look overjacket over leathers is really visually distinctive and interesting, kinda reminiscient of a central Asian influence. It'd be a daring and near-unique costume design choice. But instead, we're probably going to get relatively generic scruffy brown gear that could have been in any fantasy production from the past 20 years, from LotR to GoT to Vikings.

The worst about the scruffy brown look is that it is way more drab than even medieval outfits in our world! People have always loved colourful clothes, except for modern costume designers for film apparently.

Just because colourful outfits are available (and there are plenty of colourful outfits in the Alnwick crowd scenes) doesn't mean everyone wants to wear them.

I think I need to remind you, this is a D&D movie, not a historical movie, it should look like D&D, not history. The outfit under the robe looks fairly typical D&D barbarian gear.

That pretty much confirms Rodriguez is barbarian (axe and all) and they are leaning into the D&D look, rather than trying to be more "realistic".

Lillis is clearly a tiefling, although it's interesting (not surprising to me) that they are going for the classic look with small horns and natural skin tone, rather than a big horned red skinned 4e look. She appears to be the only non-human party member, bar cgi added later. Her class isn't obvious, but the earth toned hooded leathers suggests druid, ranger or rogue to me. She actually looks rather like Neeshka the tiefling rogue from NWN2 - not that I think she is likely to be playing such an obscure character. More likely an original.

It looks like Smith is probably a wizard, although I think the umbrella has more to do with the showery weather than being Mary Poppins.

Page appears to be absent - does that suggest he is an antagonist rather than a party member?

Depends on where they're going with her character as Exandria Unlimited's first episode introduced a Faun character meaning that might be a possibility if she's playing a druid like the earlier spoiler's that was supposedly wrong mentioned...
