Legend of Vox Machina Trailer Relishes in Animated Fantasy Blood and Guts

The Prime Video official YouTube channel has released a red band trailer for their upcoming show The Legend of Vox Machina. The trailer gives us a good look at the titular team, as well as the amount of blood and violence viewers can expect to see from the animated show. The show is being produced by Amazon Studios, Critical Role, and Titmouse.

The trailer begins with a narrator saying that "evil rises," and they show five warriors that are said to be their last hope. All of them immediately die in gruesome ways, and the narrator is forced to ask who else there is to save everyone. We are then introduced to the Vox Machina as they are drinking in a bar, and introduce themselves to a council, claiming that they "f*ck sh*t up." We then see them in action, and it seems like they all work well together, with one of the members in the group, Pike Trickfoot, also saying that they should try doing some good instead of killing for gold. The trailer ends with showing Grog Strongjaw asking if his wound is normal, with the wound being his ribs popping out of his body and blood gushing out.
