D&D Movie/TV There's A New Trailer For D&D: Honor Among Thieves

A brand new trailer for the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons movie has just been released! The movie comes out March 31st. This trailer very much highlights the tongue-in-cheek nature of the movie and is filled with one-liners. The trailer also gives us a good luck at the Red Wizards of Thay, along with the mimic, the owlbear, and other iconic D&D monsters.

Maybe, Im now having flash backs to the time folks were talking about how to make the Joker in D&D and everybody kept dumping CHA. Its possible, but feels like a stretch.
CHA is a good ability score for a Face Rogue. And the Mastermind can spend his time helping at a distance so he doesn't need to be as good at fighting :p

Also he doesn't seem THAT good at being a face that he can't avoid being this close to being executed in a jail :p he's probably only got middling CHA
 

He's a lower b bard, not a capital B Bard. His cover and background is in music but mechanically he's not a Bard class character.
Wouldn’t a more reasonable interpretation be that he’s a Bard with the Criminal/Street Urchin background?

If the movie comes out and he doesn’t use any magic, I’d be prepared to conclude that he’s a Rogue trained in Performance. Otherwise, saying he’s probably a Rogue because he seems smart seems like a bit of a stretch.

Given the amount/length of combats we'll likely see on screen, I'm betting rogue with the Entertainer background and Magic Initiate feat would be a good approximation even if he uses as much magic as the sorcerer.

It's because he feels like a guy who's all talk and screwy plans :p

Both are equally valid possibilities!

I think it’s more likely that he’s a bard who doesn’t flash his magical abilities. Lets people underestimate what he can do. They’re probably saving that reveal for the third act of the film. While we know a bard can do magic, most of the audience won’t.

Yeah that's interesting. I'll be surprised if he doesn't do any magic at all, and far more of the audience (albeit still a tiny proportion) will know Bards can do magic now than, say, 5-10 years ago, thanks to Critical Role particularly.

Oh for sure. But it makes for a nice new audience intro and running gag if he seems like he’s super charming, great at locks, can hide really well and then late in the film it’s revealed it was magic all along (charm person, knock, invisibility). Especially given how Sophia Lilis character in the trailer is questioning what his value is etc.
