Netflix Announces ‘DOTA: Dragon’s Blood’ Anime Series Premiering March (Watch Trailer)
Netflix today announced a March premiere date for ‘DOTA: Dragon’s Blood‘, an all-new anime series based on the popular DOTA 2 video-game franchise by Valve.
The upcoming fantasy series tells the story of Davion, a renowned Dragon Knight devoted to wiping the scourge from the face of the world. Following encounters with a powerful, ancient eldwurm as well as the noble Princess Mirana on a secret mission of her own, Davion becomes embroiled in events much larger than he could have ever imagined.
“Fans will love how we’ve imagined the DOTA 2 universe and woven together an epic, emotional, and adult-oriented story about some of their favourite characters,” said showrunner and executive producer Ashley Edward Miller. “The cinematic animation, acting and music are simply next level and I’m grateful to Valve for supporting our creative ambitions.”
DOTA 2 is one of the leading online games in the world, hosting millions of players daily and holding multiple records for top esports tournament prize earnings. Launched in 2011 by Valve, the annual International DOTA 2 Championship has paid over $150 million to its winning teams.
Ashley Edward Miller (‘X-Men: First Class’, ‘Thor’, ‘Black Sails’) serves as series showrunner and executive producer. Renowned Studio MIR (‘The Legend of Korra’ and Netflix’s ‘Voltron: Legendary Defender’) is responsible for animation, with Ryu Ki Hyun serving as Co-Executive Producer.
‘DOTA: Dragon’s Blood‘ (8 episodes) premieres Thursday, 25th March 2021 on Netflix UK and worldwide.
