The first official trailer for Arcane, Netflix and Riot Games’ new League of Legends animated show, released today during the three-hour TUDUM “global fan event” streaming on Netflix’s YouTube channel.
The beautiful trailer confirms much of the speculation that the focus of the show will be sisters Vi and Jinx, voiced by Hailee Steinfeld and Ella Purnell respectively. It also gave us a peek at a whole cast of champions on each of their opposing sides—some of which we’ve already seen, such as Caitlyn and Viktor, while others were completely new, like fan favorite Heimerdinger.
There’s a lot to absorb in two minutes forty-four seconds, including our first look at the regions of Piltover and Zaun, dynamic fight sequences, childhood flashbacks, and a fun close-up of Vi’s iconic hextech gauntlets in action.
Netflix confirmed that Arcane will be told in three acts, and is coming to the platform on November 6, 2021 with new episodes releasing every Saturday.
