Critical Role has officially announced the full line-up of guest stars who will be joining Prime Video’s upcoming adult-animated fantasy series The Legend of Vox Machina. Coming off from the critical success of Disney’s Encanto, Stephanie Beatriz has signed on to lend her voice to the character of Lady Kima.
In addition, David Tennant (Doctor Who), Tony Hale (Toy Story 4), Gina Torres (Suits), Khary Payton (The Walking Dead), Dominic Monaghan (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), and Stephen Root (King of the Hill) have been cast to voice the respective roles of General Krieg, Sir Fince, Keeper Yennen, Sovereign Uriel Tal’Dorei, Archibald Desnay, and Professor Anders.
“It is an animated fantasy-adventure series for adults that follows Vox Machina, a band of misfits with a fondness for boozing and brawling,” reads the synopsis. “In a desperate attempt to pay off their mounting bar tab, these unlikely heroes end up on a quest to save the realm of Exandria from dark magical forces. From a sinister necromancer to a powerful curse, the group confronts a variety of obstacles that not only test their skills, but also the strength of their bond.”
