Shadowhunters Trailer: Did They Get It Right? (VIDEO)
Holy seraphim! Just before the cast and production team of ABC Family's adaptation of Shadowhunters takes the stage at New York Comic-Con this weekend, the network has granted TVInsider.com a peek at the show's concept promo trailer. And. It. Looks. AWESOME.
For those of you who haven't devoured Cassandra Clare's hit Mortal Instruments fantasy series, the story centers on Clary Fray (Katherine McNamara), a feisty teen who discovers that her 18th birthday has brought her way more than the right to vote and drive past midnight: She is also a shadowhunter—a human-angel hybrid destined to battle the demonic forces from the Shadow World. And hang out with some very hot, mystically gifted fellow hunters. Because nobody is unattractive in the YA universe.
The minute-long clip, filled with impressive effects and a ton of reasons to be excited for the show's 2016 premiere, also gives us a taste of the other characters first introduced in the books, including sexy warrior Jace Wayland (Dominic Sherwood), whip-wielding Isabelle Lightwood (Emeraude Toubia), her romantically tortured brother Alec (Matthew Daddario) and Clary's bestie, Simon (Alberto Rosende). And yes, that is Glee's Harry Shum Jr. as glam warlock Magnus Bane.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think. Did they get this one right?
