We’ve seen several cool trailers taking us on a dizzying tour through the world of MTV’s adaptation of The Chronicles of Shannara. But with the series premiering on January 5, 2016, it’s about time that viewers actually discover what it’s about. To wit, the network released the first full-length trailer for New York Comic-Con 2015, introducing us to the dynamic trio of Amberle, Wil, and Eretria.
In fact, this is the most we’ve seen of Amberle, an elf who runs the Gauntlet and wins, becoming one of the Chosen. But when the Ellcrys—the tree that all Chosen are sworn to protect, that itself keeps demons locked away—begins dying, each falling leaf releases a new demon. And when an attack leaves Amberle as the sole surviving Chosen, she must team up with thief Eretria and half-elf Wil.
