Warners Enchanted With "The Shannara"

Warner Bros. has acquired screen rights to "The Shannara," a 14-book fantasy series by author Terry Brooks.

Brooks is the second biggest-selling living fantasy book writer after "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling.

"The Shannara" is set in a post-apocalyptic Earth, 1,000 years into the future, populated by elves, trolls, gnomes and dwarves.

The 'Shannara' family is a half-Elf, half-man clan with magical abilities and warrior skills.

WB intends to first develop "The Elfstones of Shannara," the second book in the series.
