Unicorns, Fairies, and Ogres, Oh My! The Spiderwick Chronicles Trailer Gives Us Magical Beings & A Mission to Save Humanity

We have another trailer for the adaptation of The Spiderwick Chronicles, and this one features the home that the Grace family moves into (there’s a tree in the middle) and the quest that the Grace children must take on—find all the pages in their dad’s field guide on magical creatures (unicorns and fairies are real!) before the shapeshifting ogre Mulgarath gets them and destroys humanity, as ogres are apparently wont to do.

Here’s the official synopsis for the series:

The Grace family moves from Brooklyn, New York, to their ancestral home in Henson, Michigan, the Spiderwick Estate. Helen makes the move with her 15-year-old fraternal twin boys, Jared and Simon, and her older daughter, Mallory. Shortly after moving to the Spiderwick Estate Jared discovers a boggart and realizes that magical creatures are real! The only one to believe him is his great-aunt Lucinda who implores Jared to find the pages of her father’s field guide to magical creatures and protect them from the murderous Ogre, Mulgarath.

The Spiderwick Chronicles is based on the popular middle grade books by authors Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi and was originally supposed to air on Disney+. Disney passed on the series, however, saying that it was too dark for their brand (and also based on IP they don’t own). Roku, however, picked the show up for our viewing pleasure.

In addition to Slater, the series stars Joy Bryant, Lyon Daniels, Noah Cottrell, Mychala Lee, Jack Dylan Grazer, Alyvia Alyn Lind, and Charlayne Woodard. It’s co-showrun by Lock & Key and Star Trek: Discovery alum Aron Eli Coleit and She Hulk director Kat Coiro.

The eight-episode first season is set to premiere on the streaming platform on April 19, 2024.
