Comic-Con 2020 'The Walking Dead: World Beyond' Trailer Breakdown: Teens battle Empties and their inner demons
'The Walking Dead' fans were in for a treat when AMC released an exclusive trailer during the [email protected] panel of the show. Moderated by Chris Hardwick, the panel featured the cast comprising of Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Hal Cumpston, Nicholas Cantu, Nico Tortorella, Julia Ormond and Joe Holt along with Scott Gimple and showrunner/EP Matt Negrete. The trailer gave an outline of what to expect from the latest series.
The trailer opens with Iris (Aliyah) questioning how she needs to live for herself. The clip also sees them live in a barricaded world that offers them safety and also a sense of comfort. The much-talked-about Monument Day gets a quick fleeting look. The CRM, the shadowy military organization that was introduced in the first trailer of the series get some screentime with Ormond's Lt. Col. Elizabeth Kubler making an entry.
The quest begins when Hope (Mansour) and Iris discuss if they need to step out of the relative comfort of the society to rescue their dad. TheWalkers, or in this case, the Empties are teased and they are shown to be more grisly and deadly than the ones in the predecessor shows. The trailer sees the teens encountering a new alien world as they arm up and take on the Empties while also battling their personal demons.
It is evident the series is more of a coming-of-age horror drama as it focusses on a generation that never experienced the hardship of surviving in a zombie-filled world. This fresh take might just make the upcoming series a must-watch.
The official synopsis of 'The Walking Dead: World Beyond' reads: "Two sisters along with two friends leave a place of safety and comfort to brave dangers, known and unknown, living and undead on an important quest. Pursued by those who wish to protect them and those who wish to harm them, a tale of growing up and transformation unfurls across dangerous terrain, challenging everything they know about the world, themselves, and each other. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. But all of them will find the truths they seek."
'The Walking Dead: World Beyond' premieres October 4, 10 pm ET right after the delayed finale of 'The Walking Dead' Season 10.
