Jon M. Chu originally conceived of his archetypal epic good vs. evil dance battle of an original web series to take the form of three separate and distinct parts.
The first volume of The LXD is devoted to the origin myths of the heroes of our story and launched its 10-episode arc back in July 2010. The second chapter (aka Secrets of the Ra) chronicles the history of the individuals who cut a more evil kind of rug and debuted in October 2010. The third chapter dubbed The LXD: Rise of the Drifts will (according to the promotional materials) reveal secrets, break promises and revolve around our heroes and villains fighting for the future. It’s release date is Thursday, August 11, 2011. Here’s the trailer.
Chu, The LXD producer Agility Studios and The LXD distributor Paramount Digital Entertainment are sparse on details about what exactly the next season will entail and which sponsors are helping to cover production costs, but we’ll have more info for you before the launch. Until then.
