First ‘HarmonQuest’ trailer brings us an animated D&D adventure with Dan Harmon


If you’ve ever wanted to play Dungeons & Dragons with Dan Harmon, Seeso has the next best thing. The comedy streaming service is bringing HarmonQuest to subscribers this month, a series that features Harmon and some of his famous comedian friends — not to mention animated versions of them — as they engage in the fantasy role-playing game. Seeso dropped the first trailer today, and as you’d expect, it looks like a fun romp guided by their creative minds.

The trailer makes it clear that the series isn’t taking itself too seriously; the group of comedians may have performed in front of a large studio audience, but they seem like any old group of friends hanging out, right down to their huge supply of snacks. As the trailer says, they are there to “act out [Harmon’s] role-playing fantasies and flex their comedy muscles.”

The animation makes the trailer even more entertaining. Each comedian has a lookalike character, dressed for D&D, and the visual makes it easier for the audience to follow the story’s progression. We see how the group’s quest doesn’t always go smoothly, for example, like when they are out of sync on just how a scene should play out.

Harmon’s quest-mates are a hilarious group, of course. He is joined by Erin McGathy (Harmontown), Jeff Bryan Davis (Whose Line Is It Anyway?), and Spencer Crittenden, who has worked with Harmon on Community, Rick and Morty, and more. Special guests also participate, including Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Chelsea Peretti (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Steve Agee (The Sarah Silverman Program), Paul F. Tompkins (Best Week Ever), Ron Funches (Undateable), John Hodgman (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), and Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley).

The series, which is adapted from a segment on the podcast Harmontown, premieres with all 10 episodes on July 14.

Here’s why Dune: Part One is still better than Dune: Part Two
Two men stand next to each other in Dune.

After several years of hype and anticipation, Dune is back. Denis Villeneuve's mammoth adaptation of the Frank Herbert novel of the same name has gotten the sequel treatment, and Dune: Part 2 is receiving many of the same plaudits and praise that Part 1 received when it was released in 2021. It grossed over $80 million in its opening weekend, and is on the path to outdo its predecessor.

Now that we have two parts to compare, though, the natural question is which is better. While Part 2 is certainly more action forward, and a lot of the setup from Part 1 is paid off in the sequel, here are some reasons why Part 1 may still be the better movie.
