Preferred Pronoun Set: Mr.
This could actually go anywhere at NGA I just put it here with the game I'm involved with at the moment.
Rights have been sold for a MTG blockbuster movie in the past few years and about the past 6 or 7 months I've been devouring the lore novels.
My question is, what do you think they should concentrate the movies on? And I mean more than one. You know it will be a trilogy.
Sure it seems a given that if you could condense The Brother's War and concentrate more on Gerard, Sissay and the bunch and the defeat of the Phyrexians, that has all the keys for a big ass Hollywood movie.
I'm a little torn. While I would like to see that I think a condensed but true to canon version of the Otaria cycle could be real good too.
I'm however leaning to Ravnica.
It has all the elements of high fantasy, high drama, plenty for the special effects guys to go crazy on and it has likeable characters you can get behind like Kos, Teysa, Fonn, Feather, Crix, etc.
The Time Spiral cycle has the same elements with Tefari, Windgrace, Frayelise, etc.

I'm thinking my first idea about The Brother's/Phyrexia will end up winning out but I'm pushing for Ravnica
So far that is. Still have a few novels to read but by all accounts I've heard the writing really went down hill later, as shown in what they put up to pass for lore these days.

You all have any ideas/screenplays?
LoL
Maybe we can swipe the rights.

I thought about that also but I think they need something deeper than that to develop a franchise which I'm sure they're after.

Steve Argyle? Or somebody actually from here and not the higher realms?

THey will definitely want to make it a series. Universal's decision to buy the movie rights to Hasbro properties was motivated by their desire to have more franchises.

I suspect they'll want to tie it with whatever Hasbro and WOTC are doing at the time the movie comes out, so it's pretty hard to say what it will be about. They're pretty keen on the Gatewatch.

With Universal being bought out by Disney now (with some parts being spun off as an independent company) I am a little worried. Anybody think that will have an impact?

Disney might actually be a good thing. God, I hope they don't try to do it from what every new sets they have at the time. The story lines I mentioned would be more than good weather in the game's past or not. ****, the first movie could be The Thran.

HBO/Netflix would be the way to go. Too much for a movir or 3...this would need seasons.

They didn't want movies based on Battleship or Rock'em Sock'em Robots either, but those happened.

Fair point. Both those movies bombed, but they did get made for some reason.

The last thing I want is a Jace, Chandra, Gideon, Lilly, Nissa series.
The only thing I could conceivably want from either of them is a movie of Test of Metal.

Well, I would love phyrexia and the weatherlight. But latest movie trends and Disney Star Wars movies don’t leave much hope... ;-)

I can´t even imagine how bad this will be... coz there is no way in hell they are shooting anything but the Gatewatch story arc...
1. Oath of the gate watch
2. Eldrazi set up
3. Eldrazi closure, Nicol Bolas end scene

4. reaction from non-MTG Fans: ".,,,what the hell did we just watch?"


also, this discussion is nothing if we don't get into casting.

Let's have some fun with Chandra. Maybe that chick from Age of Ultron who is a redhead?

For Liliana can we get that chick from 21 Cloverfield Lane?

For Nissa, I guess we can't do Liv Tyler :(

Sure, I'm certain those names will fit in the budget for a MTG movie
