Joe and Anthony Russo are teaming up with Netflix, Wizards of the Coast, and Hasbro to champion an animated series based on the Magic: The Gathering card game.
The series, accord to an official press release, will “expand on the stories of the Planeswalkers, which are Magic’s unique magic-wielding heroes and villains.” It’s not clear at this time how many episodes will be in the first season, or when it will debut, but the Bros. themselves are definitely fans of the game.
“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,” the Russo brothers said in a joint statement. Passionate creators usually turn our excellent content, so Magic fans should feel good about this partnership.
Henry Gilroy (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and Jose Molina (The Tick) will serve as showrunners, according to Netflix.
