Dungeons & Dragons is a 2000 American fantasy movie. It was directed by Courtney Solomon. It was based on the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. Parts of the movie were made on location at Sedlec Ossuary. Richard O'Brien and Tom Baker made cameo appearances.

Even though it did not do well in movie theaters, a made-for-TV sequel, Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God was released in 2005. It did not directly continue on the storyline of the previous movie. A third movie, Dungeons & Dragons: The Book of Vile Darkness, was shot in 2011. It was released as direct-to-DVD in the United Kingdom on August 9, 2012.
