Netflix today announced the upcoming release of DOTA: Dragon’s Blood, an all-new anime series based on the popular DOTA 2 video-game franchise by Valve. The eight-episode anime series is set to launch globally on 25 March.
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. The cinematic animation, acting and music are simply next level and I’m grateful to Valve for supporting our creative ambitions,” said showrunner and executive producer Ashley Edward Miller.
The series is based on the hugely successful global video-game franchise DOTA 2 by Valve. Ashley Edward Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor and 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, and co-executive producer is Ryu Ki Hyun.
