Edgin and Simon (Chris Pine and Justice Smith)

If the directors of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves used the forest of Tollymore for the introductory scene, they settled in Bourne Wood to introduce the character of the druidess, played by Sophia Lillis. It is here that the latter saves a young woman by transforming herself into an owl bear, a very powerful fantastic creature.

Fantastic forest

The forest of Bourne Wood, which is used to hosting filming, was not significantly altered during the filming of the scene for Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. A jib was installed and several actors and other stuntmen were positioned to allow the digital effects specialists to organize the arrival of the urchin. A key scene that Jonathan Goldstein and John-Francis Daley produced in the same place where the Jurassic World dinosaurs walked and not far from the battlefield of Maximus at the beginning of Gladiator.

Two directors at the helm

Known for their comedies Game Night and Vacation, Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley were not familiar with the Dungeons & Dragons universe before starting production on their film. Jonathan Goldstein explained how he envisioned this ambitious project to Collider: “It’s a crowd-pleasing combination t hat respectfully nods at diehard fans while remaining just accessible enough for any newbies

Fun fact, John Francis Daley played one of the lead roles in Judd Apatow’s Freaks & Geeks as a child. His character being a Dungeons & Dragons fan.


Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is the third film by the duo Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Dalley.

The director who shot here the battle scenes against the barbarians of his classic Gladiator.
