At first glance, The Shannara Chronicles falls into the young adult oriented literary compositions. This field comprises pieces by author Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, and Stephenie Meyer. The backdrop Brooks establishes is a period of dragons and opposing clans. With the latter enemies are in pursuance of territory and government. There is also the religious contexts with demons eyeing to destroy the universe.
Spike TV delivered a sneak peek preview released yesterday for episode one titled, Chosen: Part 1. The video is available on the official web page via Spike and we also embedded the video above.
From the footage, it’s evident that a group of young adults is embarking in a critical moment of their lives. A militaristic training is weeding out the strong from the meek. With little knowledge of the story, opinion is reserved for the purpose of this training. Yet, as stated there is a sense of the familiar, watching the footage it’s unmistakable the parallel with the dystopian counterpart authored by Roth.
One of the striking elements featured in the series is the special effects. While practical effects is a preferred choice the technology exhibited in The Shannara Chronicles has awe-inspiring qualities.
