The official trailer for Foundation from Apple TV+ was released today. The highly anticipated series is based on the award-winning novels by Isaac Asimov. The series will follow a band of exiles on their extraordinary mission to save humanity and rebuild civilization amid the destruction of a galactic empire. Foundation stars SAG Award winner and Emmy Award nominee Jared Harris as Dr. Hari Seldon and Emmy Award nominee Lee Pace as Brother Day.
This first ever on screen adaptation of Foundation comes from the mind of David S. Goyer, who is best known for writing Batman Begins and Man of Steel. According to Goyer, “Foundation has always been at the top of my bucket list and I’m honored I get to play a part in bringing it to life.” The trailer demonstrates how Goyer remains faithful to the original source material, while attempting to draw in viewers who might not be familiar with the novels.
Make sure to tune in on September 24 to see the first two episodes of Foundation. Episodes will drop weekly following the premiere. Check out the official trailer below to get a glimpse into this unique and thrilling series.
