If you took Lord of the Rings and The Hunger Games and tossed them in a blender built by The CW, you might end up with something like MTV’s The Shannara Chronicles NYCC trailer.
Based on the novels by Terry Brooks, the fantasy drama follows a post-apocalyptic society threatened by demonic forces. The only hope for salvation rests in the hands of three heroes: Elven princess Amberle (Poppy Drayton), human Eretria (Ivana Baquero), and half-elf, half-human Wil (Austin Butler).

Amid all the Miley Cyrus weed jokes, the Taylor Swift wins, and the #viral #unscripted #moments at last night’s VMAs, MTV debuted the first trailer for The Shannara Chronicles. Based on the novels by Terry Brooks, the fantasy drama unfolds centuries after a nuclear holocaust has wiped our current civilization off the map.
At the center of the story are three heroes — Elven princess Amberle (Poppy Drayton), human Eretria (Ivana Baquero), and half-elf, half-human Wil (Austin Butler) — on a quest to save the world from an evil demon. Watch The Shannara Chronicles trailer after the jump. Read More »
MTV is moving from the contemporary horror/comedy re-dos of Teen Wolf and Scream to realms of fantasy.

Now we’ve got the first Shannara Chronicles photo, featuring the three actors who play some of the series’ lead characters. Read More »
