Russo brothers bring Magic: The Gathering to Netflix

Fresh from Avengers: Endgame, the Russo brothers are bringing Magic: The Gathering to Netflix with Wizards of the Coast and Allspark Animation owned by Hasbro.

“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 Russos said.

Netflix has built a reputation for high quality animated series, including Trollhunters and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, that have captured the imaginations of generations.

“Magic is a beloved global franchise with a massively engaged fan base that has only continued to grow over the last 25 years,” said John Derderian, head of anime programming for Netflix. “There’s no one better suited to bring this story to audiences around the world than Joe and Anthony Russo, whose talent for genre storytelling is unmatched, as is demonstrated by their central role in creating some of the biggest box office hits of all time.”
