Based on the Sword of Shannara Trilogy books by Terry Brooks, THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES takes place on Earth, centuries into the future, after a devastating nuclear war destroyed life as we know it. Humans have evolved into numerous races (gnomes, trolls, and dwarves, with some full humans still remaining), and elves, who were living in secret on Earth all along, came out of hiding after the Great War to become the most powerful race of all. Now the creatures who remain live in the Four Lands -- trolls in the Northland, dwarves and gnomes in the Eastland, humans in the Southland, and elves in the Westland -- largely in peace. That is, until the magic that was lost along with the fall of human society returned in the form of an ancient demon and his evil horde. Now only three heroes can stop its spread: brave elf princess Amberle Elessedil (Poppy Drayton), human outlaw Eretria (Ivana Baquero) and hapless half-elf Wil (Austin Butler).
