What a day for trailers! Apple TV Plus unveiled the first official trailer for their adaptation of Isaac Asimov‘s award-winning novel series Foundation. The trailer takes viewers on a journey across the galaxy, promising a thrilling and truly emotional adventure along the way. It has everything we want to see within a science fiction fantasy series and then some.
Foundation follows revolutionary Dr. Hari Seldon (Jared Harris), who predicts the impending fall of the Empire. Seldon and a band of loyal followers venture out to the far reaches of the galaxy to establish an organization known as The Foundation in an attempt to rebuild and preserve the future of civilization. However, the ruling Cleons fear their unrivaled reign may be weakening and are forced to fight back.
As a newcomer to this series, I have so many questions and am struggling not to hit up Google for answers. Most importantly, though, is how do all of these additional characters from the trailer play into the series. I really hope that Foundation dives into their stories as well as it expands on this epic adventure. I’m just so excited that this trailer looks fantastic and is giving me major Dune vibes.
Foundation will drop its first two episodes on Apple TV Plus on September 24, 2021, and then once a week on Fridays after that. Check out the trailer and new series posters below. Are you excited for this series to finally get a TV adaptation? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
