The Legend Of Vox Machina is just over a week away and Critical Role is giving Critters another behind-the-scenes look into the highly anticipated animated series. The Legend of Vox Machina is bringing the world of Exandria to life and with it a huge cast of characters. In the campaign, Matt Mercer creates and performs all of the NPCs, non-player characters, that populate the world. However, with the animated series, these characters will be brought to life with an impressive cast of voice actors. The new video below, The Legend Of The Cast Of The Legend Of Vox Machina, reveals who will bring these characters to life in the new animated fantasy series.
“As Matt painted it Exandria is such a broad, diverse, crazy place filled with all kinds of voices from around the realm, and to populate that with voice actors who aren’t just the main eight cast members of Critical Role was always a big goal of ours to make this world feel expansive and real.” – Sam Riegel
The Legend Of Vox Machina has an impressive voice cast including actors like David Tennant, Gina Torres, and Stephanie Beatriz bringing these beloved characters to life. It is clear in the video that the cast of Critical Role is excited about the actors they have cast to embody these fan-favorite NPCs. Critters will spot a few familiar names in this case with The Legend Of Vox Machina including guests from a number of Critical Role campaigns with Kahry Payton, Anjali Bihmani, and Felicia Day.
David Tennant’s role is especially interesting as General Krieg, a pre-stream character that fans have never truly experienced. There are three characters that Critters are surely looking forward to seeing on screen, Gilmore, Allura, and Kima. Sunil Malhorta has some especially big shoes to fill as Gilmore with fans falling in love with the character due to Matt’s glorious performance. But it’s obvious in the video that the cast was blown away by his performance and Sunil feels a connection to Gilmore that is sure to shine through on screen. Matt Mercer created and embodied these characters for years from the most beloved Vox Machina allies to the most despised villains.
Most of these characters will be brought to life by new voices that are sure to bring a new energy, but Matt Mercer is still taking on at least one of his most infamous NPCs from Campaign 1. Matt Mercer will be sinking his teeth into the nefarious Sylas Briarwood, one of Vox Machina’s most fearsome adversaries with horrifying ties to Percy’s past. With this spectacular cast, The Legend Of Vox Machina will bring the story of Critical Role’s Campaign 1 heroes to life in a thrilling new way. The full Legend Of Vox Machina cast that was announced in the video can be seen below and it is glorious.
