Magic: the Motion Picture?

Posted on February 22, 2008 by Matt-M-McElroy

One of my sources at Wizards of the Coast tells me that there is going to be a Magic: the Gathering movie. This is part of the press release from Hasbro:

Hasbro Inc. (HAS) and Universal Pictures formed a six-year strategic partnership to produce at least four motion pictures based on brands such as Monopoly, Candy Land, Ouija, Battleship, Magic: the Gathering and Stretch Armstrong.

Hasbro, a Pawtucket, R.I., producer of entertainment products, said the first movie will be released in 2010 or 2011, and Universal Pictures, a division of Universal Studios, will release at least one film a year thereafter.

She did not have much in the way of specific details, but made promises to keep me in the loop as more news develops. Should be interesting to see how they put this film together. I don’t think we’re going to get another Lord of the Rings, but there are a lot of cool concepts in Magic that could do well on the big screen.
