Terry Brooks’ Shannara novels have outsold almost every other writer of epic fantasy (J.K. Rowling being the only exception) and has a worldwide following.
MTV is bringing the series to television as The Shannara Chronicles and screened a first look video at Comic-Con. It looks like it has Game of Thrones potential – great cast (John Rhys-Davies, James Remar, Ivana Banquero), great locations (New Zealand) and terrific effects (WETA!).
Check it out after the jump. The Shannara Chronicles premiere in January 2016.
