MTV released the first footage for The Shannara Chronicles at San Diego Comic Con 2015, giving fans who have waited decades a first look at the show, which will premiere in January 2016.

The footage was interspersed with interviews with the cast and crew. They even had a brief bit with author Terry Brooks, who recently said he and his wife spent a week on the Shannara set during filming.

The first look at MTV’s new show was clearly geared towards fans, showing flashes of numerous characters, scenes, and backdrops, yet gave no audio or dialogue from the show. A few key things seen: the Elfstones, the Ellcrys, and a frightening look at a demon that could be the Dagda Mor.

What did you think of the trailer?
