The Sword of Shannara Trilogy


@Shannara hasn't tweeted yet.

In that vein, "Shannara" will also, the occasional arrow battle or amorous exchange excepted, not move in a hard-R direction — Favreau called this show "just a little bit softer" — which, unlike "Thrones," will help allow younger teens to watch it (or more accurately, their parents to sanction it).

But "Shannara" will not go for the big provocations of "GOT"--a factor that may slightly slow its social-media traction but will also avoid that show's penchant for polarizing its viewing base. There's not likely to be a massacre of main characters; if there's a wedding at all, it will be a much lighter shade of red.

It would be both correct and overly simple to call "Shannara" a basic-cable answer to "Thrones." The idea of bringing a cinematic rigor to the fantasy genre and to introduce it to legions of fans who may not dedicate themselves to it on a regular basis certainly runs parallel.

One of the most exciting things about the upcoming release of Wards of Faerie, a new Shannara trilogy by stalwart Fantasy writer Terry Brooks, is that, for the first time since The Wishsong of Shannara, in the ’80s, the novel will feature artwork to go alongside Brooks’ story. It’s doubly exciting because they chose one of my favourite artists, Todd Lockwood, to do the art. I’ve always felt that Lockwood and Shannara would be a good mix. Having read Wards of Faerie, I think he nailed the feel and look of Brooks’ characters and world.
