88,886 backers pledged $11,385,339 to help bring this project to life.


Posted by Critical Role (Creator)


The support of the community on this project has been humbling, to say the least. We’re so excited to bring this animated special to life. AND YOU DID IT! And you did it in LESS THAN EIGHT HOURS. 

From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU. Thanks to your pledges, The Legend of Vox Machina has gone from 22 minutes long to a whopping 88 minutes of animation from our friends at Titmouse! Not to mention 3 (count ‘em) 3 new CR one-shots and the horde of awesome backer-exclusive swag. BUT IT’S NOT OVER YET! We’ll have more updates as the pledges keep coming in.

PLUS, Matt, Travis & Marisha are sitting down TONIGHT (March 4th) at 7pm Pacific on to answer YOUR questions!

If you can’t catch the stream, simply head over to the FAQ on the project page and ask your question there (if it hasn’t already been answered, that is) or head on over to the general Kickstarter backer FAQ.

And now, a word from Laura Bailey (harp music):

      Just to bump up a suggestion below. Simple strech goals of VM character sheet or comic strips . PDF downloads to reduce postage and manufacturing costs. DONT BITE OFF MORE THAN YOU CAN CHEW! I’d rather 30 minutes of GOOD story then 2 hours of filler. Just look at the simpsons movie. It was a long episode nothing more.

      How could i not support you guys. It's thanks to you all and critical role that i discovered D&D and found my partner Kyle who is honest to god the love of my life. It's brought me so much joy and turned me away from the hardest time of my life. Thank you. Thank you all

      Next goal should be 5.8 million - then you're the highest funded thing on Kickstarter in the Film and Video category (you're already third, and highest in animation).

      Ha! Joke on you guys for thinking Critters won't throw money at you like it was confetti!

      Really though, this is the very least we could do to give back for all the fun time you guys gave us. We love you guys.

      Every backer gets a t-shirt. The Legend of Vox Machina characters in 1980s style! Kind of like another cartoon with a group of friends with a cool DM:)

      Happy to back this project. Because of this crew my wife and three daughters became interested in D&D, and asked me if we could try it. So we gave it a shot and have been playing ever since. So from my family of Critters to you the cast thank you so much for making our game night so much more. We love you and we are looking forward to this.

      Should have remote screenings in select theaters around the country whenever you guys release this. Critters would show up to show out. No problem selling out theaters, to be able to share in the moment.

      May have mentioned this earlier #CRITCON this needs to happen.. Critters can make the world a better place if we all got together. VOX MACHINA & M9 FSU ........

      Me and my husband hold CC in our hearts, it's got a special for us and our toddler REALLY love Grog XD Whenever she hears him, she stops everything and sits on our laps.

      We're really excited to be able to back this :)

      Crit-con needs to be a thing!

      I would like to see another One-shot run by Grog, or maybe have another one of the characters run one

    26. Victoria Alexander on

      Please don't fall into a fool's trap and promise too much more animation footage before you really hash it out with Titmouse. Each episode can EASILY go over $750k apiece if you're not careful.

      And that "Bullet time around Scanlan's crotch lightning" comment during the Q&A didn't give me much confidence that you're that familiar with the 2d animation pipeline.

      We are normally not people who donate to kickstarters. However, CR has such a place in our hearts that we can't pass up an opportunity to help out. We love you all and we love the critter community for banging out over 500% of the funding the were basing for this project. NERDS RULE!

    28. John Ling on

      Why not just turn this into a weekly animated show?

      We love you all back! Thanks to you guys, I'm now running a campaign (after 35 years of not playing) with 8 good friends! Lol and still trying to get through season 1 :D. Keep up the awesome work!

      We love you back! How much would a 13 episode season cost? Frankly, I'm willing to help any of you accomplish any of your goals.

    32. Joe Rundin on

      I am really hoping a future stretch goal includes 3d6 added to that dice set so its a full and proper set

      Ryan Head on

      so at what stretch goal do we get critterland/vox-machinaland because we got 44 more days? lol

    34. Timothy McFadden

      Any chance of some simple add-ons like character sheets, art prints, Vox Machine themed pony, etc?

      Awwwww mumma bear and baby cub. This is the culmination of the phrase "bunch of nerdy ass voice actors play Dungeons and dragons". It's the logical conclusion. How could it not end up an animated thing?

      When my mother was in hospice care last December, you all gave me the best gift I could have imagined ... smiles and laughter and tears of joy during a dark time. I could never repay you enough for helping me through that (and continuing to). Love you all!

      You deserve this. The passion you have all shared for your creation, the fans, and delivering the best possible entertainment experience has been so very much appreciated for more than two years now; enjoy the treasure you've discovered, Vox Machina!

    41. Matt

      Wish there was one more executive producer title left. I feel it would be awesome to be a listed supporter on the credits~! And hey, there is no way I'd be able to make the screening because of my work so you can save space and cost there too!

      Congratulations guys, hope we will see a whole animated series off the back of this. I'll bet Amazon or Netflix are throwing money at you by the end of the week. We'll done
