Netflix Releases ‘History Of Magic’ Video For Bright

Will Smith in Bright.

A couple weeks back, the streaming service Netflix released a unique $100 million-flick in the form of Bright, an urban fantasy feature set in an alternate present-day world. It’s not a genre or type of world that normally makes its way to features (it’s usually reserved for TV shows, comics, novels, or video games), and given the great potential to explore this world, it’s easy to see why.

I found the film to be a relatively enjoyable experience when delving into the world and characters, but one that kind of fell flat once the part started running. It’s easy to understand that one of its biggest criticisms is that it should have been a series.

However, while Netflix may not yet have you covered on that front (though there is a sequel planned), if you were hungry to get more of the unique world brought to life by screenwriter Max Landis and director David Ayer, the streaming service has released a new video. The video in question delves more into the history of this world, giving us the lowdown on Brights, Magic Wands, and the oft-mentioned Dark Lord, which we only got bits of pieces of in the film.

While this video may not add any narrative strengths to the finished product, it may help to scratch the itch some viewers had for some more world-building. For someone like me, however, the video was a bit too dry and exposition-packed. That being said, we’re sure there are plenty of people out there who get more out of this video than they did in the film.

What do you think of this video, and do you think it adds to the mythos of Bright? Let us know down below!
