The Walt Disney Company's classic portrayal of the Arabian prince Aladdin comes to mind when most people hear the name Aladdin.
The character's origins, on the other hand, may be traced back to 16th-century folk stories, which have influenced a variety of creators throughout history.
Stories about the youngster and his genie have made their way into manga and anime, with the “Magi” franchise being the most popular.
The story follows Aladdin as he meets a genie and embarks on various extraordinary adventures, similar to previous versions of the classic tale. He's accompanied by companions Alibaba and Morgiana, both based on characters from ancient legends.
A “Magi” TV series was released in 2012 and aired in 2014, based on Shinobu Ohtaka's manga of the same name.
Fans have yearned to return to the original tale, even though the show spawned a spin-off in the form of “Magi: Adventure of Sinbad.” Although seven years is a long time to wait for the next installment, all hope is not lost.
What Is the Plot of Magi Season 3?
At the time of writing, little is known about the plot of “Magi” Season 3, but it will most likely continue Aladdin's trip around the world, meeting various friends and foes.
The series is first and foremost about adventure, and the third installment is sure to include plenty of it.
At the time of writing, Studio A-1 Pictures has not offered any significant changes, although viewers may expect more mature storytelling as the series has become braver with its tales.
The second season dealt with more ethically challenging plot arcs, such as war, political maneuvering, and socioeconomic suffering. The show may take more significant risks now that the characters appear older and wiser in the next episode.
Several stories from the “1001 Arabian Nights” collection, which initially portrayed Aladdin's exploits, were also integrated into earlier seasons.
Season 3 will almost certainly follow this trend, as there are still plenty of concepts that can be mined from the source material and applied to a thrilling adventure-themed anime like “Magi.”
When Will the Third Season of Magi Be Released?
The third season of “Magi” is set to premiere in late 2021 or early 2022, but it could debut sooner than later. Season 3 could debut as early as October, according to The NU Herald.
The COVID-19 epidemic may have caused problems in the release, and it's still too early to know if real-world events may create more delays.
However, knowing that “Magi” will return to screens shortly is something to be excited about, significantly since many anime fans on Reddit believed the franchise's on-screen adventures ended with the last season of “Magi: Adventure of Sinbad.”
Another cause for the delay could be the production's ambitious nature. According to the NU Herald story, season 3 of “Magi” has a larger budget to work with, implying that the makers have been taking their time to ensure the series delivers in breadth and scale.
Who Will Appear in the Upcoming Magi Season?
The cast for Season 3 of “Magi” has yet to be announced, although it's reasonable to presume that the original voice actors will repeat their roles.
Fans will be hopeful that Kaori Ishihara, whose other credits include “Digimon Adventure tri,” reprises her role as Aladdin from the previous chapters.
Ishihara, on the other hand, has had a busy year so far, having lent her voice to “Combatants Will Be Dispatched,” “Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid,” Black Clover,” and “Higehiro.” Hopefully, she's scheduled “Magi” into her itinerary.
If Yûki Kaji, who played Alibaba in the series, returns, he will be a valuable addition to the third season. Since the end of the previous “Magi” adventure, he's been in “Attack on Titan,” “Psycho-Pass,” “Gantz:O,” “Weathering with You,” and a slew of other anime series and films.
The core cast was last seen with Haruka Tomatsu, who played Morgiana. She's had a big 2021 as well, with roles in programs like “Horimiya” and “Peach Boy Riverside,” but she's sure to have some unfinished business in the “Magi” realm.
It's unclear whether the original group will return, although no evidence suggests otherwise.
