·2 min read

Critical Role’s violent, Dungeons & Dragons animated series “The Legend of Vox Machina” is growing its party with an army of talented voice actors, such as Stephanie Beatriz, David Tennant, Tony Hale and many more.

The guest actors will give life to many of the side characters from Critical Role’s popular Dungeons & Dragons web series, which is now launching as a Prime Video animated series on Jan. 28. In the original Critical Role campaign, dungeon master and creator Matthew Mercer voiced all of the non-player characters, but he’ll now get some help from the A-list talent.
