Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo will develop a new animated series Magic: The Gathering, for the streaming platform based on the popular Wizards of the Coast fantasy franchise.
This will be the first time the franchise will be adapted for the screen in the franchise’s 25-year history, which started with the flagship card game involving battles between wizards called Planeswalkers.
The Russo brother will expand on the stories of the Planeswalkers, which are Magic’s unique magic-wielding heroes and villains, as they contend with stakes larger than any one world can hold.
NX dropped the teaser image of the series. They captioned it, “HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT TIME: Netflix and Wizards of the Coast are teaming up with Joe and Anthony Russo to make a Magic: The Gathering anime series and this teaser of Chandra has me asking QUESTIONS”
The teaser image accompanying the news seems to feature popular character Chandra Nalaar, a human Planeswalker from the world of Kaladesh who specializes in fire magic.
Star Wars Rebels co-executive producer/writer Henry Gilroy will co-write and co-showrun the Magic series with Jose Molina, a co-executive producer on Amazon’s The Tick and Marvel’s Agent Carter.
Octopie Network and Canadian studio Bardel Studio will handle animation.
