With the eagerly anticipated premiere of The Shannara Chronicles right around the corner, MTV and Syfy Australia have released a couple of new promos to whet our appetite for the TV adaptation of Terry Brooks’ best-selling book series.
The first promo, released by MTV and titled “Only the Beginning,” offers another variation on several promos we’ve seen before, but it does feature snippets of new footage. The next four promos are character-centric and put the spotlight on the fantasy series’ main heroes: Allanon (Manu Bennett), Amberle (Poppy Drayton), Eretria (Ivana Baquero) and young Wil Ohmsford (Austin Butler), the half-human half-elf who’s the last survivor of the Shannara bloodline.
Last, but not least, is a 1-minute Syfy Australia promo that's chock-full of new footage, featuring some very nice in-house special effects from MTV. Check them out below, and let us know what you think.
