Based on one of the biggest book franchises of all time by Terry Brooks and executive produced by Jon Favreau (Iron Man), "The Shannara Chronicles" is the epic series set in a world thousands of years after the destruction of our civilisation. Earth has been divided into the Four Lands, whose inhabitants are a mix of races including elves, dwarves, trolls, gnomes and humans. At the centre is the Shannara family, whose descendants are empowered with ancient magic and whose adventures continuously reshape the future of the world. As the story begins, dark and terrible forces, thought to be confined for years, begin to escape. Three unlikely heroes learn that only they have the power to stop the advancing evil and they form an uneasy alliance as they are forced to embrace their destinies.
