The Will Smith-starring film was received warmly by viewers, while it was estimated that as many as 11 million people watched it over its opening weekend.
Bright is set in a modern world where humans coexist with elves and orcs, and its plot sees Smith and Joel Edgerton’s characters finding a magic wand and running for their lives.
The film itself touches very briefly on its broader world and its history, but this new featurette answers a great deal of questions about the history of the magic and the origins of the wand.

David Ayer, its director, hit back before Christmas at one particularly scathing review – which called it “the worst film of 2017”.
He tweeted back: “This is going on my fridge. Highest compliment is a strong reaction either way.
“This is a f***ing epic review. It’s a big fun movie.”
He added: “You can sure string words together Mr. Erlich. I’d love to read any script you’ve written.”
The critic responded: “you’re a good man, mr. Ayer. i’ll be waiting with fresh eyes for whatever comes next.”
Bright is streaming on Netlix now.
