Netflix Preps Magic: The Gathering Animated Series
This will not come as a surprise to anyone who’s been following Netflix’s strategy for building their in-house content, but it’s still welcome and exciting news: recent reports state that the streaming service is partnering with Joe and Anthony Russo, Wizards of the Coast, and Hasbro in order to produce a new animated series based on the Magic the Gathering franchise.
The Russo brothers will be in charge of the storyline, which will give more focus to the stories of various Planeswalkers. There is no release date yet, but the Russos have already confirmed their participation and have admitted that they accepted the project because they themselves are fans and players of MTG.
The new series will feature creative talent from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Batman: The Animated Series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Firefly, Agent Carter, Ultimate Spider-Man, and The Lego Movies. Production will be handled by Bardel Entertainment.
