Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed four recent Marvel Cinematic Universe hits, including Avengers: Endgame (see "’Avengers: Endgame’ Delivers Jaw-Dropping $350 Million Debut"), will executive produce and oversee the creation of the storyline for a new animated series based on Magic: The Gathering for Netflix, the company announced today.  The story will expand on stories of the Planeswalkers, according to the announcement.

Octopie will oversee production and Henry Gilroy (Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and Jose Molina (The Tick, Agent Carter) will be lead writers and co-executive producers.  Yoriaki Mochizuki, a story artist from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse will serve as supervising director and co-executive producer.  Animation will be by 2-D studio Bardel Entertainment, which did the animation for Rick & Morty and Teen Titans Go, among others.  Netflix seems to be classifying this as an anime-style production.
