On November 10, 2022, Netflix Anime revealed a new trailer for the upcoming Dragon Age: Absolution on Twitter. We’ve got a release date, cast, plot, number of episodes, and confirmation that this is just the first season!
Whether we can binge watch it or watch it weekly is unknown. But you don’t need an in-depth knowledge of Dragon Age to enjoy it.
What do we know about Dragon Age: Absolution?
Dragon Age: Absolution will premiere on December 9, 2022 and Season 1 will have six episodes. The plot focuses on Miriam, an elven mercenary who was a former slave in Tevinter.
According to the trailer, she can’t remember when she wasn’t someone’s property and it’s clear she didn’t have a good childhood. This anime has adult themes and the trailer features swearing.
Nonetheless, role-players will feel right at home in the storyline. A group of fighters, thieves and magicians try to steal an artifact possessed by an evil force.
Mairghread Scott, the author of Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, is behind this adult series and Red Dog Culture House is animating it if you watch the trailer on YouTube and read the description. Netflix hints they’ll see fans on Dragon Age Day or sooner.
Dragon Age Day is an unofficial holiday that falls on December 4th, but BioWare and Netflix are celebrating it with fans. There’s fun, games, art and everything to celebrate the franchise.
Unfortunately, the site gives no indication of what Netflix is planning. But the site celebrates different occasions each year, and 2022 is for The Trans Empowerment Project!
Who is the cast?
Kimberly Brooks plays Miriam and it seems that the elf has ties to several members of the group.
- Matthew Mercer is Fairbanks. Our hero’s leader is a freedom fighter with a sense of adventure, daggers and a dashing smile.
- Ashly Burch is Qwydion. A Qunari mage who loves explosions and can either level a building or cure your hangover!
- Sumalee Montano is Hira. Hira is a mage who hopes to rebuild her relationship with Miriam as she continues her crusade against Tevinter. But Hira is hiding a secret that could cost them both everything.
- Phil LaMarr is Roland. He is charming and full of anger. Roland is there with his blade when the going gets tough.
- Keston John is Lacklon. You can’t have a good imagination without dwarves, and Lacklon is a Drwavern Lord of Fortune. He’s rugged, a glory dog, a natural brawler, and a little cowardly in the face of certain death.
- Josh Keaten is Rezaren. Rezaren sees himself as a good man in a bad world and will do whatever it takes to make Tevinter a better place.
- Zehra Fazel is Tassia. Tassia is hardworking and dutiful, but often ignores anything that doesn’t meet her moral standards. But she cannot ignore the sins of Tevinter or Rezaren forever.
