Critical Role's The Legend of Vox Machina reunites your favorite heroes for a professional-quality animated special!
88,887 backers pledged $11,385,449 to help bring this project to life.


Posted by Critical Role (Creator)


You helped us hit our second stretch goal less than two hours into the campaign! This means we’ll be about to DOUBLE the length of our animated special with 22 additional minutes of animation for The Legend of Vox Machina!

Plus, all of our $100+ level backers are getting their campaign-exclusive Legend of Vox Machina crew beanies!

Here’s our own Liam O’Brien with a few heartfelt words for you all.

NEXT UP: if we hit $2M, we’ll add another in-canon Vox Machina one-shot live stream: Summer Reunion at Dalen’s Closet! Not to mention, all backers at the $20+ Scout level will receive a Vox Machina voicemail pack (and we’re oh-so excited to see & hear what you all do with those…).

      Love you guys and the show soooo much! Cant wait to see all the shenanigans yall get into during the one shots! #100$

    3. Jordan Jones on

      According to the math of Ashley … 30min of animation = $750,000 … … So a 10 episode series should cost $7.5 Million.... Again, a bit of math… 60,000 backers x Averaging $135 each = $8,100,000!! That should be enough! RIGHT???

      @Liam, I do!:) Thank you for all the fun and inspiration you give us.
      Did you people looked at the community tab? At this moment, there 9890 US backers and and 9899 returning backers. Does this mean that there are only 9 new backers in US and the rest of us just made accounts for Critical role? ... That must be a Mighty 9!:)
      P.S.: I so want to see Colville's face right now:)

      No, thank YOU!
      Before, when someone asked what I did in the weekend, I would say "I hung out with friends!", now I will proudly say "I played DND with my friends!", and the confidence to do this, came from you all!
      So whatever paltry sum I was able to give, doesnt even begin to give back what you have given me!

      In just about two weeks before this kickstarted officially ends, I'll be turning 53 and I've been a gaming since Jr. High. I've always enjoyed the games I've played in and DM'd, but these last few years of being a Critter as well has shown me the joy of what can really be done. Since discovering Critical Role our games have improved in amazing ways from simple mechanics (like the status rings around the minis) to members of our group who never have before are dipping their toes into actual role-play. You've given us so much entertainment and inspiration it is a true honor to be part of this endeavor and give something back. Thank you so much and love to you all!!!

      You have a real problem now!!!

      This project is going to be best fantasy animation ever! when mainstream production studio relize how deep the cash goes they are gonna want to take a taste for round 2.


      come together as a group and know your life changing number before they come knocking.

      The critters will always, ALWAYS float your dreams and imaginations. There is no need to shop your creativity outside of us.

      Critical role: I suggest to the internet they back our project.
      DM: ok, make a persuasion roll.
      CR: Natural. Fucking Twenty.

      While I get that you don't know for sure until you put yourself out there for a project like this, I don't think any Critter is truly surprised by this. You had only to ask, and here we are.

      Much Love to you all. Vox Machina!!!
