Netflix and Riot Games reveal first trailer for Arcane, show set in world of League of Legends

At Netflix’s Tudum event, the company and Riot Games revealed the first trailer for the animated Arcane television show set in the world of League of Legends.

The show’s first act will premiere on Saturday, November 6 at 7 p.m. Pacific Time on Netflix, a few hours after the League of Legends World Final wraps up. Each act will contain three episodes, with an act dropping every week until November 20.

“The launch of Arcane is the beginning of the next chapter for Riot and we can’t wait for players to see what we have in store for them across games, entertainment, and sports,” said Nicolo Laurent, CEO of Riot Games.

  • Based on the world behind League of Legends, Arcane dives into the delicate balance between the rich city of Piltover and the seedy underbelly of Zaun. Known across Runeterra as the “city of progress,” many of the most brilliant minds call these cities home. But the creation of hextech, a way for any person to control magical energy, threatens that balance. While Arcane holds the backstories of League of Legends champions, the series is designed to stand on its own as a complex world filled with moral decisions, breathtaking animation, and suspenseful storytelling.

  • Players will see some familiar faces in Arcane, like Jinx, Vi, Jayce, and Caitlyn, and learn about the events that made them into the iconic champions we know today as we push their stories forward. Players will also be introduced to some new faces too, like Vander and Silco, who are both citizens of Zaun and play critical roles in shaping the evolving world.

  • Earlier this week, Riot announced the global voice actors for Arcane. Below is a selection of the global English language cast:

    • Vi – Hailee Steinfeld

    • Caitlyn – Katie Leung

    • Jayce – Kevin Alejandro

    • Silco – Jason Spisak

    • Jinx – Ella Purnell

    • Mel – Toks Olagundoye

    • Vander – JB Blanc

    • Viktor – Harry Lloyd

League of Legends has mass appeal all over the globe, so it only makes sense that Netflix would try to get their hands on a series at some point. The show marks yet another attempt by Netflix to reach broader audiences with IP already relevant to them.
