The Wild Beyond the Witchlight has been announced as the next Dungeons and Dragons adventure, and it's set to launch on September 21, 2021. The book is up for pre-order now at Amazon.

Unveiled as part of D&D's 'Week of Legend Lore', The Wild Beyond the Witchlight brings back the Feywild setting (in fact, it's the location's first go-around in Dungeons & Dragons' fifth edition). Official details are scarce right now, but more information has been promised for D&D Live this July 16 - 17.
There are hints about what it could include, too. Alongside promises of "wicked whimsy" on a cover featuring bears with fairy wings and the creepiest damn clown we've ever seen, official artwork puts a circus in pride of place. If product blurbs revealed on Amazon are anything to go by, this is the Witchlight Carnival and acts as the gateway to a Feywild "domain of delight", a counterpoint to the nightmare dimension of Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft and Curse of Strahd Revamped. Think of a cross between Alice in Wonderland and Lothlorien from the Lord of the Rings and you won't be too far off.
It's possible that we'll be able to take advantage of new character types as well. Official playtest material with Feywild creatures (including Rabbitfolk and humanoid owls) was released earlier this year, so it stands to reason that they'd be available for players to utilise in The Wild Beyond the Witchlight.
We're unlikely to find out more before D&D Live in July, so for now we'll just have to tide ourselves over with the best Dungeons and Dragons books.
