BEAST LEGENDS “The Kraken” Episode 1

Watch a sneak peek of the premiere episode of the new Syfy reality series BEAST LEGENDS titled “The Kraken” which airs this Thursday September 9 (10-11 p.m. ET).

Episode Synopsis: BEAST LEGENDS The Kraken Episode 1 – The Beast Seekers investigate the sailor’s legend of the Kraken, a terrifying multi-tentacled sea monster that snatches men from ships’ decks and crushes entire vessels, sending them to the ocean bottom.

Show Description: BEAST LEGENDS – Beast Legends, a new six-part series which journeys around the world using scientific data to reconstruct what mythological monsters, from Krakens and Griffins to Fire Dragons, would have looked like. In each of the hour-long episodes, Beast Legends uncovers historical and eyewitness accounts by zeroing in on archaeological and other physical evidence to assemble the most accurate picture possible of these monsters, from where they might have lived to how they would have behaved.

Beast Legends then moves to the ‘Beast Lab’ to build the creature, first as initial sculpts and wire-frame forms, before finally bringing it to life in stunning 3D CGI.

The investigations are conducted by the “Beast Seekers,” an expert team of specialists:

· Stephen Leonard: Adventurer and Veterinary Surgeon based in Bristol, England
· Kathryn Denning: Myth expert, anthropologist, archaeologist and professor at Toronto’s York University.
· Scott Edwards: Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and Curator of Ornithology at the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University.
· Francis Manapul: Philippine-born, now Toronto-based, renowned comic book artist.
