Wizards vs. Aliens discovers its first teaser trailer
Earlier this year we did echo the news confirming a new television project of Russell T. Davies, the head of the new era of Doctor Who, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures, was to make a dramatic cut youth series for CBBC (Children’s BBC). This project entitled Wizards vs. Aliens come to fill the void left by The Sarah Jane Adventures, series ended after the death of its star Elisabeth Sladen. After several months comes the first teaser trailer of this series somewhere between Doctor Who and Harry Potter.
The title of the series is very specific, surely you imagine that is:
Some aliens reach Earth in search of magic and are willing to destroy anything to do with that power. The only thing standing in their way are two young students of sixteen. Tom and Benn. Tom Clarke lives a very normal life with his father and grandmother, but hides a secret: all his family are wizards and when the Aliens come to our world with their ray guns, their ships and their high-tech robots he Benny and his friend, a genius of science, will unite to fight and save the planet.
For this new series Davies has had several partners such as Doctor Who Gareth Roberts, writer of chapters The Lodger and Closing Time; screenwriter Joe Lidster Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures, and Clayton Hickman one of the writers of The Sarah Jane Adventures.
The actor Brian Blessed lends his voice to the character of King Nekross, ruler of the alien race who has come to steal all the magic of the earth, found a job that frankly exciting:
Wizards vs Aliens is very exciting and there is a sense of originality. It is full of vision and brilliance. I think the whole concept is miraculous and I am thrilled to be part of such an exciting project.
The first season of the series will consist of 12 episodes of 25 minutes duration that we see in the fall of 2012.Tags: Aliens, Davies, Russell T., Trailer, Wizards vs.
