Apple TV+ gave viewers a first look at their small screen adaptation of iconic sci-fi author Isaac Asimov’s Foundation novels.

The two-and-a-half minute teaser shows footage from the show along with sound bites from showrunner David S. Goyer (screen writer of The Dark Knight), who cites Foundation as an influence on Star Wars, calling it “the greatest science fiction work of all time”.

While plot details are sparse in the teaser itself, Apple TV+ summarises the story as a group of exiles, who band together to save humanity and rebuild civilisation after the fall of The Galactic Empire. It’s worth noting that the visual effects look spectacular. The show will be out in 2021.
