Arcane character posters reveal League of Legends characters in animated series
Netflix has released new character posters and a new teaser that confirms more champions will be part of Esoteric, the animated series based on the League of Legends universe.
While the central plot of Esoteric will focus on the rivalry of the Vi sisters (voiced by Hailee Steinfeld) and Jinx (expressed by Ella Purnell), the new posters and character teaser confirm the presence of champions Viktor (voiced by Harry lloyd), Jayce (voiced by Kevin Alejandro) and Caitlyn (voiced by Katie Leung). There are also three characters who are not yet champions but who could become champions in the future, should the series prove to be successful: Silco (voiced by Jason spisak), Mel (expressed by Toks Olagundoye) and Vander (expressed by JB White). Each character has their own poster, which means they’ll play a big part in Vi and Jinx’s origin story.
The pieces of history that we pull League of Legends Tell us that Vi and Jinx were criminals in Zaun District, the lower part of Piltover Town. However, when Jinx embraced the chaos and escalated his crimes, Vi became an Enforcer, tasked with keeping the peace. By choosing opposite paths, the two characters have become rivals, and this is the origin story that Arcane promises to develop and explore.
The makers of original games and lore, Riot Games, produce Esoteric in collaboration with the animation company Fortiche Productions. Fortiche has already worked on the 2017 Rocket & Groot miniseries for Marvel and in the 2013 animated trailer Get Jinxed, by presenting one of the two Esoteric protagonists. Riot Games’ Christian Linke is showrunner and co-creator of the series alongside Alex Yee. Yes Esoteric proves to be quite effective, League of Legends has a current total of 156 champions that he can explore in other media.
