MAGIC THE GATHERING THE MUSICAL – Jake takes his deck of Magic: The Gathering cards down to the local comic shop for a tournament where a motley crew of vampire enthusiasts, bumbling nerds and a pair of rappers all hope to claim the top prize. Moonshine was delighted to do post work on the project, created by Molly Coffee of Zombie Cat Productions.
Watch Magic: The Gathering here!
Magic: The Gathering is a collectible card game where most of the action comes from describing how the spell you just cast interacts with a card you already have on the board, thus decimating your opponent. (It’s actually pretty fun.) Yet despite the trappings of a not-entirely visual medium, Zombie Cat Productions has paid the morph cost to transform the game into a puppet musical. They focus on the players themselves, looking for validation of their smarts at a local tournament, and the whole thing has some serious heart of Yavimaya. And, with all due respect to the zero folks who have tried beforehand, the greatest puppet freestyle rap about Magic that has ever been put to screen. It’s a Magic-fuckin’ day, people!
