Wizards of the Coast has announced a partnership with both Netflix and the Russo brothers (Avengers: Endgame) to create a Magic: The Gathering animated series.
This series will expand on the stories of the Planeswalkers, Magic’s unique magic-wielding heroes and villains. The overarching plot will look at how they will contend with stakes that are larger than any one world can hold.
According to the Russo brothers:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]“We have been huge fans and players of Magic: The Gathering for as long as it has been around, so being able to help bring these stories to life through animation is a true passion project for us.”[/testimonials]
