League of Legends: Arcane premieres November 7 on Netflix
League of Legends: Arcane will be divided into three great acts of three chapters each, giving a total of nine episodes. The first three chapters will focus on the beginnings of the two main sisters, Vi and Jinx, on November 7. From there, the second act will arrive days later and, consecutively, the third act.
What will League of Legends: Arcane be about? First details and statements.
Arcane is aimed at lovers of League of Legends and animation series in general; a proposal that will deepen the complex balance between the rich city of Piltover and the district much less capable of Zaun. What they call the “city of progress” is, for many, the home city. Not surprisingly, the creation of hextech —The way in which anyone can be able to control magical energy— jeopardizes this balance.
Christian Linke, co-creator of Arcane, explained his creative vision on the occasion of the announcement: “When we started producing Arcane, we knew we had something very special in the story between Jinx and Vi”, He begins by recounting. “We wanted to explore the idea of what we are capable of doing for the family, what values are compromised and the conflict that is endured. The story, combined with the hand-drawn illustration style and character animation that we have created in collaboration with the Fortiche animation studio, it will provide players with a rich view of the world of League of Legends, ”he stresses.
In the series we will see familiar faces like Jinx, We, Jayce and Caitlyn, and the events that made these champions a legend in the Runeterra universe will take place throughout the episodes. We will also meet new faces, like Vander and Silco, inhabitants of Zaun, whose role in history is fundamental. “Arcane is a story of duality. In which the characters are divided between two parts of a city with opposite but complementary values and opportunities. Each one with its strengths and weaknesses. You may be the hero in your story, but the villain in someone else’s ”, he explains. Alex Yee, cocreador de Arcan.
