      If you missed out on the opportunity to back the Kickstarter, you will need an Amazon Prime or Prime Video account to watch the show when it comes out. The first season will be free for all those that backed the Kickstarter campaign, a crowdfunding event which raised enough money for 10 episodes, before Amazon Prime picked up the show. Backers will also get a "first chance" to see the show, before it becomes available to the general public. At the time of the Kickstarter campaign, you didn't even need to back at a pledge level high enough to get any of the perks. Just a small donation of like $5 was enough.
      Amazon has contracted with Critical Role for at least 2 seasons of CR:TLoVM for 12 episodes each, (24 episodes total,) with an option for more shows. Those who backed the first season on Kickstarter will eventually need a Prime Video account to watch Season 2, as Prime Video is paying for those episodes to be produced. If you are a fan of the Critical Role livestream, there's another free bonus to having an Amazon Prime account. Linking your account to your Twitch account also unlocks "Twitch Prime," which gives you one free Twitch subscription which you can use to support the Critical Role each month, and unlock all the VODs immediately. You don't have to wait until Monday when the show becomes available on FIchannel.
      "The Legend of Vox Machina" animated show may eventually come out on Blu-ray, but normally shows that are Prime Video exclusives, (like The Expanse) are delayed to come out on physical media after the following season is already released on the streaming service. So if CR:TLoVM comes out on Blu-ray, Season 1 likely won't be released until Season 2 is already out.
      Hope this answers your question.

      The first season will be free for all those that backed the Kickstarter campaign, even for those that donated less than the perk levels. Kickstarter backers will also be given the opportunity to see the show first. Plus we get two more episodes than we were promised in Season One.

  • N Slater

    Wait, weren’t the episodes supposed to be on FIchannel?

    • PristineTX
      PristineTX 10 päivää sitten

      No. That was never part of the deal. They promised that KICKSTARTER BACKERS would get to see the 10 episodes they raised money for, and have an opportunity to be the first to see the show. They never said how the show would be distributed. Now that Prime Video has picked up the show, the Kickstarter backers will get to see the first 12 episodes without any additional cost, (so two additional free episodes) and an opportunity to see the show first.

    Wait, so is there a show out about Vox Machina?

    • PristineTX
      PristineTX 10 päivää sitten

      It is scheduled to debut in the fall-winter of this year. The show is in production. It has been planned for some time, and this is a "behind the scenes" look at the early writing process which apparently concluded a few months ago. IIRC, they have wanted to do an animated show since at least 2018, and Critical Role shopped the show around Hollywood to various networks and streaming services for about a year, but no one was able to come to any terms. It was hard to find anyone who wanted to take a chance on making a high-quality (expensive-to-produce) animated show for adults about a D&D game. So last year, Critical Role made a Kickstarter, asking for $750,000 to make one, half-hour show. In under five days, they had raised $6.5 Million, eventually closing out at over $11.3M -- enough to make 10 full episodes, and setting a Kickstarter record. After this success, the networks and streaming services realized the hit potential, and eventually Critical Role signed a deal with Amazon's Prime Video for two seasons, 12 episodes each, with an option for more and for additional projects.

      Ya, I was gonna say, there's actually been a few *tries* to adapt. None of them, in my opinion, really succeeded to gain traction, but they did try.
