This is where you can suggest your fancast for the series and/or any rumours about casting. Once more information is available we will have a News thread in the main forum where only CONFIRMED cast will be discussed.

That'd be pretty sweet, yeah. But that depends a lot on two things: 1.who they get as a voice director and 2.budget.

Hasbro is one of those "more money than god" type companies, so they're probably giving us a decent budget.

So what we're hoping for is a skilled voice director to find the right actors and get the best out of their performances.

But if they got someone awesome like Andrea Romano to do the voice direction? We'd be set.

Pretty sure that both Tara Strong and Grey DeLisle would be up for it, and both have good experiences working with Hasbro properties already.

Im more interested in when the show will take place. We know Chandra is in it since she was on the teaser, but thats really all. Maybe they will just retell the gatewatch up to bolas story?

I assume it'll be backstory and "adventures" up to the point of the gatewatch being formed, or some such.

Apparently the Russos are talking about it today at SDCC!

Information to follow. Hopefully?

As much as I enjoy Tara Strong's body of work, I'd rather have Chandra voiced by Jennifer Hale. Ms Hale imbues a little more gravel and gravitas.

And while Mark Hamill might be enjoyable as Tibalt, I think Alan Tudyk would likely blow our collective minds,

I'm not sure "gravel and gravitas" are what they should be going for with Chandra.

And Alan Tudyk could voice most anyone and blow a fair number of minds. I just feel that Mark Hamill has an array of voices that would all be perfect for Tibalt, from his manic Joker, to his menacing Ozai, and even his normal voice all feel like they'd fit various interpretations of Tibalt.

"Gravel and gravitas" might be too heavy and Tara Strong's voice seems too soft. Jennifer Hale is more of a Liliana, I think.

What if the characters were voiced by film and television actors, not voice, animation or video game voice actors... just a thought. Doesn't have to be so geeky that normal Joe's won't recognize them. I think a great tribute would be actors/actresses who have a history and love for Magic: Seth Rogen, Wil Wheaton, Jerry Seinfeld, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Felicia Day, etc...

My prediction: this series will be a decent one. Nothing stellar, nothing horrible, just decent. Which will result in casual fans who barely know MtG to be like "meh, it was nice I guess", and in hardcore long-time MtG fans to be like "OMG IT'S THE WORST THING SINCE THE HOLOCAUST IT RUINED MY LIFE DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA OF THE KIND OF EMOTIONAL DISTRESS IT CAUSES ME TO SEE THAT THE THIRD LINE IN THE SECOND SCENE OF THE FOURTEENTH EPISODE IS NOT PERFECTLY LOYAL TO THE FLAVOR TEXT OF A DECADE-OLD OBSCURE CARD".

In other words, the usual fare with the internet.

I think the Russos will do a good job. I mean, sure, their Marvel movies were great, but Arrested Development was fantastic,

Well, it's technically a "netflix original", and don't those go on every international version of netflix?

If not, there are methods to region unlock your netflix.

I imagine the core Gatewatch are all a safe lock, as they've been prominent in MtG marketing materials for years. Teferi seems like a good choice as well, as he can play more of a mentor role.

Plane-wise, probably MtG planes that are both unique and easily digestible by the audience? Ravnica seems like an obvious choice, especially given Jace's ties there. Dominaria could also work very, very well if they ignore all of the obscure lore / Weatherlight saga stuff (at least at first) and lean on the more familiar fantasy tropes like the Church of Serra, Benalia, Llanowar, the Cabal, etc. Innistrad is always fun, and you'd expect it to at least put in an appearance based on its popularity, but it doesn't feel like as good a choice for an extended storyline, and might come across as a little derivative to TV audiences if they haven't had time to get acclimated to the more original planes first. Better to start off with the wholly original planes to cement Magic's identity before branching into the (very fun) top-down planes.
