Amazon Prime Video unveils the trailer for its new animated series Vox Machina, trash and gore at will.
The universe of Dungeons & Dragons invites itself to Amazon Prime Video. The platform will broadcast an adaptation of Vox Machina, one of the campaigns led by the band Critical Role between 2015 and 2017.

This online success has obviously attracted the attention of the platform, which will adapt one of their adventures for an animated series. Baptized Vox Machina, she follows the adventures of a band of outsiders who have become mercenaries. More interested in cheap beer than protecting the kingdom, they will nevertheless have to fight dark forces that threaten it. What started out as a simple mission will turn into the story of the origins of the new heroes of Exandria.
In the vocal casting, we will find a good part of the original team. The actors of the show will thus resume their role and lend their voices to the animated version of their characters. Thus, Ashley Johnson will camp Pike Trickfoot, a clerical gnome of Sarenrae (the goddess of redemption in the universe). The actress has notably appeared in Avengers, where she encamped a waitress who helplessly witnessed the destruction of New York by the Chitauris. She will give the reply to Laura Bailey (Avengers Gathering), Taliesin Jaffe (2010: the year of first contact) and Travis Willingham (Spider-Man: Miles Morales).
