The official Netflix description reads:
“Set in the utopian region of Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun, the story follows the origins of two iconic League champions-and the power that will tear them apart.”
The show was independently financed by Riot Games (creators of games such as League of Legends and Valorant).
The trailer shows Vi and Jinx fighting as the balance between the rich city of Piltover and the seedy underbelly of Zaun is threatened by the creation of hextech, a way for any person to control magical energy.
