DANIEL MACPHERSON, MARCUS VANCO, BROOKE WILLIAMS JOIN 'SHANNARA' EPIC FANTASY TV SERIES! IS NETFLIX PREPARING 'LEGEND OF ZELDA' EPIC FANTASY SERIES?

'SHANNARA' EPIC TV SERIES
CASTS MARCUS VANCO, DANIEL MACPHERSON, BROOKE WILLIAMS
Our main television headline today is that MTV's small screen adaptation of fantasy saga SHANNARA has two new cast members who will join Austin Butler and Poppy Drayton in the lead roles alongside Ivana Baquero, Aaron Jakubenko, Manu Bennett and John Rhys Davies. According to 'Deadline' Brooke Williams ('Spartacus: Blood And Sand'), Daniel MacPherson ('Neighbours'), and Marcus Vanco ('Unbroken') have joined the cast of the 10-episode epic fantasy drama based on Terry Brooks’ massive fantasy book series set in our world, thousands of years after the destruction of our civilization.
ELVES AND ANCIENT MAGIC  
The story follows the SHANNARA family, whose descendants are empowered with ancient magic and whose adventures continuously reshape the future of the world. Brooke Williams will play Catania, a witty and wise Elf who is not only Elven princess Amberle’s (Poppy Drayton) handmaiden, but her trusted best friend in the palace. Daniel MacPherson is Arion, the heir to the Elvin throne. Arion takes himself very seriously and is the opposite of his wilder brother Ander (Aaron Jakubenko). Marcus Vanco plays Bandon. Feared by his family for his mysterious visions, Bandon is discovered by Elvin prince Wil (Austin Butler) and Amberle starving and chained to a wall. Druid Allanon (Manu Bennett) takes special interest in him, believing his abilities will be integral in saving the Four Lands. Cast also includes Ivana Baquero (Eretria, a human thief) and John Rhys-Davies (King Eventine, Amberle's grandfather, who has ruled the Elvin kingdom of Arborlon for decades)!

  2. I still need to read these books. Or maybe I'll just wait for the series to hit the screen. Especially if it stars Mr. "Check Out My Abs" MacPherson. :)

    1. I can imagine him as anything if he is set in an epic world :) You can't have an epic movie without him, from LOTR and INDIANA JONES to this one

  4. Jason and I were obsessed with playing Zelda when we were kids. I'd like to see it become a reality, only if they do it right though. This is one I could see us enjoying together.

    2. it might not happen at all :) It's in very early stages of talks and might fall apart before it gets into any stage of production

    3. I've heard quite a bit of talk about it lately. If it's already causing some buzz like this, I bet it gets a green light.

  5. That first pic...nice.

    The Legend of Zelda? I spent so many hours on that game until I finally won. It would be interesting to watch it on TV.

  6. Wow. We read the Shannara books but I don't recognize any of those characters or situations. Is this only going to loosely based on the world?
