New Shadowhunters promo trailer gives us more of everyone
As if I didn’t have more reason to fangirl about the ABC Family upcoming series, this new Shadowhunters promo trailer adds more “squee” to the already overexcited part of my brain reserved specifically for Cassandra Clare‘s Shadowhunter Chronicles.
I really like this trailer as it teases us about the relationships that Clary Fray (Kat McNamara) has and develops with Simon Lewis (Alberto Rosende), Isabelle Lightwood (Emeraude Toubia), and Jace Wayland (Dominic Sherwood). We even get a glimpse of Valentine Morgenstern (Alan Van Sprang).
Of course, it’s still not much, but for me, I think I’ve seen enough of it that I have confidence in the actors to portray the essence of the characters in the book rather well, regardless of if their hair is the right shade, or the eyes are the right color, or whatever else fans may have a hang-up about.
Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, “Shadowhunters” follows 18-year-old Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons.
When her mother Jocelyn is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend, Simon. Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold.
