DeAPlaneta Entertainment, coproducer and global licensing agent for "The Three Musketeers," in collaboration with Pathé and Chapter 2, dropped earlier this mont, serving as the first digital collectibles of the popular franchise based on Alexandre Dumas’ revered novel. The launch brings the franchise into the NFTverse with a collectibles offering that embarks users on an interactive experience as they train to temporarily become Musketeers.
"The Three Musketeers" Academy collection has launched a few days after the global premiere of "The Three Musketeers - D’Artagnan" in France on 5 April, in Italy on 6 April, in Germany on 13 April and Spain on 14 April, among others. The collectibles will consist of 2,000 unique assets based on a series of male and female cadets, generated randomly from a variety of 150 traits. Cadets will then train to become Musketeers. Holders of the assets will access the academy and train their cadet in one of four randomly assigned schools. Cadets will be guided through the Musketeer onboarding process by one of four mentors (aka one of the four main characters of the franchise): Athos, Aramis, Porthos and D’Artagnan. Once schools and mentors have been assigned, users will undergo initial training for two weeks. Holders will overcome tests including battles on Discord and a quest on The Three Musketeers universe and will gain points and climb positions on a shared scoreboard. During the training process, holders can win all sorts of prizes and take part in movie ticket giveaways, among many other surprises.
"The Three Musketeers - D’Artagnan" counts with a budget of more than €72 million and a star-studded cast and a solid technical crew. The title, as well as part two, "The Three Musketeers - Milady," are produced by Dimitri Rassam and Pathé Films, and coproduced by DeAPlaneta, Constantin Films and M6 Films. Both productions are helmed by filmmaker Martin Bourboulon, director of hit movies including Eiffel and Daddy or Mommy.
The long-awaited adaptations of the most popular and acclaimed French adventure novel of all time feature some of Europe’s most popular film stars Vincent Cassel, Golden Globe nominee Eva Green, Romain Duris, Pio Marmaï, actor and filmmaker Louis Garrel and 2022 European Film Award Best Actress winner Vicky Krieps, bring the iconic characters to life. French rising star François Civil plays D'Artagnan and the captivating Lyna Khoudri plays Constance Bonacieux, his love interest.
