Netflix has confirmed the release date of its upcoming first Spanish original anime series, “The Idhun Chronicles.” The series will premiere on September 10th worldwide. Originally titled “Memorias de Idhún,” the series is produced by entertainment company Zeppelin.
The Idhun Chronicles is an epic story full of excitement, friendship, and action. Netflix has also shared the first teaser of the show (watch above), which introduces the main characters, the real heroes that fight for Idhun’s freedom and those who will do everything in their hands to stop them.
The official synopsis says "The day the three Suns and three Moons came together in alignment over Idhun, Ashran, the necromancer, seized power and the reign of the winged snakes started. The first battle for Idhun's freedom takes place on Earth, where Jack and Victoria fight to stop Kirtash, an assassin sent by Ashran to destroy the idhunites who escaped from his tyranny. However, without knowing it Jack and Victoria are part of a prophecy that will intertwine their destinies in a story full of love and hate that will unchain duels to the death and also build unexpected alliances."
Created by Andrés Carrión and Laura Gallego, the series stars Itzán Escamilla as Jack, Michelle Jenner as Victoria, Nico Romero as Shail, Sergio Mur as Kirtash, Carlos Cuevas as Alsan.
The first season of the shows will have five episodes of 25 minutes each and it’s an adaptation of The Resistance, the first volume of the namesake bestseller written by Laura Gallego.
Below are the full details of the series characters given by the Netflix:
Jack (Itzán Escamilla): He is thirteen years old and is optimistic, a little impulsive, and quite stubborn. He doesn't know why things burn around him when he gets nervous, and he can't explain his snake phobia either.
Victoria (Michelle Jenner): She is cheerful, easygoing, and determined in spirit. She has certain magical powers that Shail is helping her develop, but that right now is limited to healing and connecting with the Soul of Limbhad.
Shail (Nico Romero): He's the wizard of the Resistance. When he was a child, a unicorn gave him the gift of magic. Kind and empathetic, he is fascinated by the Earth’s technology. He is Victoria’s teacher and friend and will instruct her on how to use her power.
Kirtash (Sergio Mur): He's 15, but he's an experienced killer. His gaze is as cold and deadly, the same as the steel of his mighty Haiass sword. He faithfully serves Ashran the Necromancer, the Sheks' powerful ally in Idhun, and has the unwavering support of Elrion the wizard.
Alsan (Carlos Cuevas): He's the Crown Prince of the Kingdom of Vanissar. He was educated at the academy of Nurgon in the ideals of honor, duty, and justice, and he leads the rebel group known as the Resistance. He is a great master of fencing, and his weapon is the legendary Sumlaris sword. He will instruct Jack in the art of the sword.
