Trailer: ‘Dragon Age: Absolution’ Brings a Fantastical Game World to Screens

Another anime interpretation of a hit video game franchise is ready to transport Netflix viewers next month in Dragon Age: Absolution (6 x 30′). Premiering December 9, an all-new trailer, key art and first-look images dropped today, revealing the dangerous and enchanted corners of BioWare’s RPG world.

Synopsis: When a heist against the most powerful man in Tevinter goes south, an elven mercenary named Miriam (multi-award-winning voice actress Kimberly Brooks) is forced into a desperate fight for survival. Now, to save herself and her friends, Miriam will have to confront the tragic past she’s spent a lifetime trying to escape.

Created in collaboration with Dragon Age franchise creator BioWare, Dragon Age: Absolution is set in Tevinter and features an ensemble of new characters inspired by Dragon Age lore, including elves, mages, knights, Qunari, Red Templars, demons and other special surprises.

Cast & Characters

  • Kimberly Brooks as Miriam – A pragmatic elven mercenary who escaped enslavement in Tevinter, Miriam is closed-off to many who know her. But her heroic nature shines through when she’s forced to confront the nation that destroyed her life, and the man at the heart of her misery.
  • Matthew Mercer as Fairbanks – A veteran freedom fighter, Fairbanks leads our heroes with a warm-hearted sense of adventure, a pair of daggers and a dashing smile to boot.
  • Ashly Burch as Qwydion – A bubbly Qunari mage with a penchant for explosions, Qwydion is an open-hearted, easily-distracted blabbermouth who can level a building or cure a hangover, depending on the situation.
  • Sumalee Montano as Hira – An idealistic mage, Hira hopes to rekindle her relationship with Miriam while advancing her relentless crusade against Tevinter. But a terrible secret will put both at risk.
  • Phil LaMarr as Roland – Despite his effortless demeanor, the charming Roland possesses unmatched grit. When disaster looms and all seems lost, Roland is as sure as the blade he wields.
  • Keston John as Lacklon – A dwarven Lord of Fortune, Lacklon is a gruff fighter, a born brawler, a complete glory hound — and just enough of a coward to make sure he stays alive.
  • Josh Keaton as Rezaren – Born to privilege and plagued by tragedy, Rezaren sees himself as a good man in a wicked world. Intelligent and charismatic, Rezaren is determined to build a better future for everyone in Tevinter, no matter the cost.
  • Zehra Fazal as Tassia – Dutiful and hardworking, Tassia turns a blind eye to everything that doesn’t meet her moral standards. But even she won’t be able to ignore the sins of Tevinter (or Rezaren) forever…

The series is produced by Bucheon-based animation studio Red Dog Culture House and BioWare for Netflix, with Mairghread Scott (Guardians of the Galaxy series) as showrunner, executive producer and writer. Ki Yong Bae (The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf; Love, Death + Robots: Good Hunting) is series director,  Mae Catt and Tim Sheridan are writers and Chris Bain, Matthew Goldman and John Epier are exec producers.

Since debuting in 2009, the award-winning Dragon Age video game franchise has brought players into the world of Thedas with rich stories, unforgettable characters, and beautiful and deadly locales to discover. The next upcoming game, Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, will be a single-player focused experience that further builds on this incredible adventure.
