Dungeons and Dragons have recently been gaining a lot more mainstream appeal with the hit television series Stranger Things.

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is an upcoming film from Game Night directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley.

The new film stars not only Michelle Rodriguez and Chris Pine, but also Hugh Grant (Two Weeks Notice and Mickey Blue Eyes), Detective Pikachu‘s Justice Smith and It‘s Sophia Lillis.

The story will follow a band of thieves who kickstart a devastating war after stealing the wrong artifact. Now, it’s up to them to set things right and stop an evil force from overtaking the land.

In a recent interview with Collider, Chris Pine compared his new movie to a bunch of different classics.

“The way that I’ve been describing it, it’s like ‘Game of Thrones’ mixed with a little ‘Princess Bride’, just a smidge of [‘Monty Python and the] Holy Grail’; it’s somewhere in that ballpark. It’s a lot of fun. It’s got a lot of thrills. It’s poppy, it’s ’80s heartfelt, there’s a bit of ‘Goonies’ in there.”

It makes sense for the new Dungeons & Dragons to take inspiration from The Goonies. D&D was first published in 1974 but had its biggest rise in the 1980s. Productions set in that decade, such as Stranger Things, tend to use the game to reproduce the period’s trends correctly.
