The Shannara Chronicles Comic Con Footage. MTV‘s The Shannara Chronicles (2016) ‘Official First Look’ footage from the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con International stars Ivana Baquero, Manu Bennett, Emilia Burns, Austin Butler, and Poppy Drayton. The Shannara Chronicles‘ plot synopsis: “Shannara takes place in a world set thousands of years after the destruction of civilization as we know it. The 10-episode adaptation follows the Shannara family, who are able to tap into ancient magic and whose adventures help reshape the world’s future. Season one is based on The Elfstones of Shannara, the second title in Brooks’ series.”
A more detailed overview of The Elfstones of Shannara:
In the far future, unbeknown to humankind, an apocalyptic war is brewing. Fearsome, vengeful Demons rage at the boundaries of the world, held at bay by a spell called the Forbidding. But now that barrier is dying. Evil is beginning to break through. And only the Chosen can banish the Demons back to their realm.
Wil Ohmsford is a healer, not a fighter; a man of duty, not great deeds. But this epic battle seeks him out, for he holds the Elfstones: mysterious protective talismans passed down by his grandfather. Wil is recruited to act as guardian to the Elf girl Amberle, who must venture far to deliver a seed that will help the Forbidding to grow again. The fate of civilization rests upon her shoulders—and the completion of her mission rests upon Wil’s. Now, as the forces of darkness descend, Wil and Amberle embark on a perilous journey, placing their faith in each other to survive the bloodthirsty terrors that await.
The Shannara Chronicles also stars Aaron Jakubenko, John Rhys-Davies, Marcus Vanco, Brooke Williams, and Daniel MacPherson.
