Arcane content on Geeked Week 2022
The Geeked Week 2022: Animation Showcase, hosted by Arcane’s Ella Purnell and Masters of the Universe’s Tiffany Smith, detailed the lineup for Day 3 which had content from Arcane, The Dragon Prince, Love, Death & Robots, Farzar, Inside Job, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners and more.
Fans of Arcane have been looking for crumbs of information in every nook and cranny ever since Riot Games and Fortiche Productions ended Season 1 of Arcane with a cliffhanger. Ella Purnell, the actor behind Jinx in the show, said, “I know where it [the next season] goes,” but she cannot reveal any information yet.
Following this, Netflix revealed a sneak peek of Arcane: Bridging the Rift on how the team at Riot Games went back and collaborated with Fortiche Productions, a studio that has already worked with Riot Games on other projects.
Apart from Arcane, the two entities have collaborated on other music videos for League of Legends. The older collaborations include the following:
Music video “Get Jinxed,” which was released for the announcement of Jinx in the game
“Warriors” featuring Imagine Dragons which was released for Worlds 2014
“Enemy” music video featuring Imagine Dragons and JID
“Seconds” which was a cinematic released for Ekko
“POP/STARS” featuring Madison Beer, (G)I-DLE, Jaira burns for the virtual k-pop band of League of Legends, K/DA
“Rise” which was the Worlds anthem for 2018 featuring Glitch Mob, Mako, and The Word Alive
Notably, in March, Riot Games announced that it had invested in the Paris-based animation studio. Under the terms of the investment, which was closed out earlier in 2022, Riot holds a significant non-controlling stake in Fortiche Production. Additionally, Riot’s Chief Content Officer Brian Wright and Director of Corporate Development Brendan Mulligan have joined the studio’s board of directors.
Riot Games already confirmed that the second season of Arcane is in the works but has not given a release date yet. Fans might find a little solace and tide over this unknown wait time by getting immersed in Arcane: Bridging the Rift.
