What will the Netflix series be about?
Octopie CEO Isaac Krauss said that the tone of the Magic: The Gathering show’s story is dark and that the writers have developed a person-based story for the series. There are as of now no other specifics concerning the characters and settings, however, it will be revolved around the magic-wielding Planeswalkers, who are among the most remarkable legends and antagonists of the lore’s multiverse. Coast’s head of story and entertainment, executive producer on the Netflix series, the Netflix series will be consistent with the spirit of Magic’s story.
So what we intend to do is, that the story and the characters will be true to the spirit of the story and the previous characters, Kelman told TheWrap. ‘We will be true to that and the world and true to the guiding principle of those universes and characters. Yet, we will attempt to cut out our own congruity space in fundamentally the same way as different establishments that have done that with adventures in another medium from previous stories.
