A New Dawn Cinematic League of Legends
League of Legends : A New Dawn Cinematic
Day breaks over a landscape consecrated by blood and steel. A battle begins as a new dawn rises. Following A Twist of Fate, we created A New Dawn to explore fleshed-out champion interpretations and brutal team fights in ways they’ve never been seen before.
This is a 6-minute animated short film that is based on the popular video game “League of Legends”. There is great love to detail about it. The main concept of the game is 5 players going against another quintet of players. Teamwork, individual skill and tactical knowledge decide in the end who is going to triumph. The filmmakers here added 5 characters to each team. The first team consists of Ahri, Leona, Rengar, Graves and Jax. The second team consists of Darius, Draven, Katarina, Zyra and Nautilus. If you know a bit about the game, you will know that these two teams could actually exist like that in the game in terms of the champions’ particular roles. Apart from that Darius and Draven are brothers if I remember correctly, so it makes totally sense to build the teams like that. Also many of the attacks from these champions including their ultimates and Rengar’s stealth for example are exactly the way they happen to be in the game. The only thing they did not give a go was Ahri’s attack with which she makes enemies fall in love. I think this was a really outstanding short film. There is another one out there about Twisted Fate and Garen if I remember correctly, but that one does not have an IMDb page. Paople who do not know League of Legends do not need to see this short film, but the rest totally should give it a go and enjoy all the smart inclusions of the characters’ fighting styles and attacks. I truly enjoyed it. Thumbs up.
