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.

As a Californian, I think this is of a piece with the rest: "prancing" feels like a coded word to me, maybe not in British English...
Hmm. In British English it's sort of more "annoying idiot"-coded than gay-coded, at least in my experience/vocab, but yeah California is rather different. Mincing would be gay-coded in the UK for sure.

Possibly it's because I am older than you, but I am familiar with homophobic implications of "prancing" in British English. The boarding school I attended in the 1980s was a massively homophobic environment, and I've been the victim of homophobic bulling myself. But I can't say I've ever considered bards gay-coded. It was probably the Asterix comics that formed my negative view of bards. That and a general aversion to music.

I'm pretty sure I have heard anti-bard comments from female-identifying folk on this forum.

I don't believe in the no-win scenario

For many folks, sadly, they combine the two ideas into one. To make it sound really really bad.
