'SHANNARA' EPIC TV SERIES
 NEW TRAILER AND CAST PHOTOS
Along with the first character photos a new trailer has been released last night at those godawful MTV Awards for upcoming new epic fantasy series SHANNARA which is, believe it or not, arriving to MTV next January. Set thousands of years in the future in the world of elven kingdoms, the ten episode series will be the small screen adaptation of Terry Brook's popular fantasy novels. Austin Butler leads the cast in the lead role of Wil Ohmsford - half human and half elf - who discovers that he is the last of the legendary Shannara family.

POPPY DRAYTON IS AMBERLE  
Elven princess, agile, fit and capable, she has become the first female to be accepted as one of the Chosen, the special group of Elves responsible for the protection and care of the ancient Ellcrys tree. But unlike the rest of the Chosen, Amberle’s dangerous and heroic journey is just beginning.

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).

IVANA BAQUERO IS ERETRIA  
A young woman from the wrong side of the tracks who’s been forced to use her beauty and wits to survive. She’s a human who has been raised in a den of thieves known as the Rovers. When she rescues elven prince Will (Austin Butler) from danger she becomes unwittingly tied to his quest to save the Four Lands.

AARON JAKUBENKO IS ANDER
 Amberle’s uncle, an Elven Prince with the reputation for being the wild party boy who has yet to find his way in the world.

JOHN RHYS DAVIES IS EVENTINE
King Eventine, Amberle's grandfather, who has ruled the Elvin kingdom of Arborlon for decades)!

MANU BENNET IS ALLANON
 Manu Bennett from HOBBIT and SPARTACUS will play a powerful druid named Allanon, the last of his kind.

EMILIA BURNS IS TILTON

Emilia Burns (Terra Nova) will be Commander Tilton, the Captain of the Black Watch, the legendary protectors of the Ellcrys and the Gardens of Life

    2. Fancy meeting you here Fran. Looks like you're in a wee bit of trouble.

    3. oh, noes, did he not stop by your place,dear? :)

    4. Nope and I stopped by every month whilst he was away to let him know he hadn't been forgotten. He's dead to me now.

    5. I did notice you were visiting him, dear, while I run through he last two posts a few days ago.... You truly must spank him, dear :)

    6. Annzie don't play that anymore. Either respect me and treat me like I deserve to be treated or feck off. Moi is finished dahlink and not wasting anymore time on that shite.

    7. you is joking, or is you serious, dear? We must not be too emotional, dear, you know how me and you are the same that way.... we must control it because we don't wanna lose some people we like... maybe Fran has some kind of explanation.... give him a chance to explain himself....
      You know, I'm glad whenever you come by, and I always feel like some element here is missing when you is not here for a longer time.. but I never get angry when you disappear because nobody owns anybody... you know, we just own these cosy little moments and comments that us bloggers share with each other and that is what we must cherish and focus on. Internet communication can be often tricky. And sometimes people can't get everywhere at the same minute, or maybe somebody is saving you for the moment he will have more attention to give you whilst visiting others just quickly.... all is possible, dear.

  2. The only awards show I care about is the Oscars. MTV awards are a joke

    1. Oscars have become a joke long time ago too :) Globes and Emmy's are outstandingly hilarious :)

    2. I like the Globes the best.
      I've never heard of any of the title peeps. :(

    3. they're all unknown... more or less.. but surely you know of dear John Rhys Davies, he is such a legend of our childhoods... and is still active... one of my all time faves.... That Ivana lass is the little kid from PAN'S LABYRINTH, while that hunk MacPherson is quite a stud over in Australia

  3. I like the cute little elf ears, and I think the commander got her role for her nice rack.

  8. The only thing they did with that trailer was piss me off. All those quick cuts were annoying and told me nothing at all. From what little bit they allowed me to see I'm already put off as it looks too dark. Not at all how I pictured it in my head when I read the books.

    I take it you didn't like the awards darling :0)

    1. didn't even watched the awards, but my Facebook reel had hundreds of stories on Miley Cyryses tits and ugly face.... makes me wanna close some of the pages there... it's Craptrashians all day long at most of the leading news sites....

      I do hope it will be more fun and less dark... I liked the trailer because it gave us the scale of the production.. we shall get a more detailed trailer later this winter methinks it's too early now

    2. Dahlink, the link on your Contact for your email isn't. working. When I push contact me HERE, nothing happens.

      Delete
    3. it opens the window for writing an email in the programme you're using, dear.
      Or, if not, when you put cursor on it you will see the address in the bottom of your browser.

      Delete
    4. The window won't open for me dahlink, but I did see the address in the bottom of the browser. I will try to reach you using that.

      Delete
    5. it could be that your mail programme is responsible, dear... will send you a line if you don't manage to get me :)

  9. I'm surprised anyone watches those awards shows anymore. Well, never mind. Allison got into those Nickelodeon shows and kept shushing us. I had to remind her it's a bunch of stupid people giving each other stupid awards for being stupid. She wasn't too thrilled with that comment. The only thing worth watching for is the fashions, but I just grab the highlights the next day.

    You just reminded me to put Shannara on my drv. Going to go do that right now!

    1. If time were not a moving thing
      And I could make it stay
      This hour of love we share
      Would always be
      There'd be no coming day
      To shine a morning light
      And make us realize our night is over

      When you walk away from me
      There is no place to put my hand
      Except to shade my eyes against the sun
      That rises over the land
      I watch you walk away
      Somehow I have to let you go
      Cause it's over

      If you knew just how I really feel
      You might return and yet
      There are so many times
      That people have to love and then forget
      Oh there might have been a way somehow
      I have to force myself to say
      It's over

      So I turn my back,
      Turn my collar to the wind
      Move along in silence
      Trying not to think at all
      I set my feet before me
      Walk the silent street before me
      Now it's over
