Another teaser trailer is expected to be released on February 19, 2021, while the main trailer should arrive on March 2, 2021. At that point, we’ll likely have a much better idea of what the series will be about.
Dota: Dragon’s Blood plot
Dragon’s Blood will focus on Davion, a renowned Dragon Knight devoted to wiping the Scourge from the face of the world. After encounters with a powerful and ancient eldwurm, Davion becomes tangled up in events far bigger than he could have ever imagined.
It’s not just Davion that Dota fans can look forward to, as the series will also heavily feature Mirana, the Princess of the Moon. She’s described as being on a secret mission of her own that will have a big impact on the Dragon Knight’s story.
“Fans will love how we’ve imagined the Dota 2 universe and woven together an epic, emotional, and adult-oriented story about some of their favorite characters,” said Ashley Edward Miller, who will serve as showrunner and producer.
“The cinematic animation, acting, and music are simply next level and I’m grateful to Valve for supporting our creative ambitions.”
