UPDATED June 2021:
It was a year ago I first shared the trailer (just also below) for this new Apple TV+ series Foundation and today we finally have the first teaser and while EPIC can be overused, once you’ve watched this? You’ll be using the word as well, it looks truly astonishing work on the way, launching on 24th September 2021.
The teaser truly showcases the sweeping scope and scale of the eagerly awaited new Apple Original series, it’ll debut with the first three episodes, followed by one new episode weekly, every Friday, check this out:
June 2020: Wow, this looks right up my street and as we have the likes of Dune in our sights and on the way, it feels like huge, ambitious Sci-fi has a very re-inventive, promising time ahead.
Based on the novels by the one and only Isaac Asimov, Apple Originals announced this first look at Foundation at WWDC20 last week and it looks truly spectacular. Led by showrunner and exec producer David S. Goyer – who you’ll know as one of the writers on the likes of Man of Steel, The Dark Knight, Batman Begins, Blade and Dark City – this new teaser gives us all a look inside a genuinely exciting saga.
While the premise might sound familiar, this is more hardcore Sci-fi, despite Goyer’s reference to Star Wars, but Foundation does follows a group of exiles on their journey to save humanity and rebuild civilisation during the fall of the Galactic Empire – Watch now and let us know what you think, I’m very intrigued…
The series stars SAG Award-winner and Emmy-nominee Jared Harris as Hari Seldon; Lee Pace as Brother Day; Lou Llobell as Gaal; Leah Harvey as Salvor; Laura Birn as Demerzel; Terrence Mann as Brother Dusk; and Cassian Bilton as play Brother Dawn. We also just learned that Kim Adis will star, who’s one of our upcoming favourites!
