MTV is making a bid for a piece of the fantasy epic series pie with this new trailer for Shannara Chronicles, a show based on the Terry Brooks series of novels of the same name. While MTV has plenty of experience with shows based on popular properties (Teen Wolf, etc.), this is its first foray into the fantasy realm.
Stylistically speaking, it looks incredible. The visuals are quite lovely, there’s theme oozing out of every pore, and the effects on some of the characters look incredibly neat. Things are done up in super saturated color with a bit of lens flare thrown in here and there, perhaps borrowing a page from J.J. Abrams’ playbook.
Check out the follow-up video from Terry Brooks below to catch his feelings on how he feels the series is developing.
What do you think, folks? Will you be tuning in January 2016?
