MTV’s The Shannara Chronicles SDCC Trailer Sneak Peek & Panel
Top 5 Panel Moments
John Rhys-Davies on going from Gimli in Lord of the Rings to King Eventine in The Shannara Chronicles:
“From dwarf to elf king. Eat your heart out, Orlando Bloom!”
Ok, it was gorgeous and epic and much, MUCH better than I was expecting. Behold it’s glory above.
An adorable younger fan asked the cast and producers if they had read Elfstones. Most had either listened to audiobooks, or read them, and the girl got to take a photo with the cast.
Keeping it Real
Millar promised an emphasis on practical sets over CGI, saying the show may be more similar to Star Wars than to Lord of the Rings.
Lady Character Love
Ivana Baquero shows her character some love. “The first thing I thought when I read for Eretria was: WHAT A BADASS.”
Poppy Drayton says she was drawn to Amberle’s combination of strength and vulnerability.
