Check Out The Hub’s ‘Wizards vs. Aliens’ Trailer

“It’s wizards versus aliens, and I’m ready for them,” says Tom Clarke (Scott Haran) in the trailer for The Hub’s aptly named British import Wizards vs. Aliens.

The successful kid’s series comes from former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T. Davies, and is set to make its stateside debut this Saturday (June 1st). As for the series’ premise, well that’s all there in the title, but the trailer reveals Davies’ low-budget/big heart approach to storytelling that he honed during his time at the helm of the TARDIS has remained intact. Tom and his best friend Benny (Percelle Ascott) may be busy defending the world from aliens who are out to drain all the magic from Earth, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have time to stop and appreciate just how “awesome” the experience is.

In addition to Haran and Ascott, Wizards vs. Aliens will feature a few faces familiar to genre fans. Expect Game of Thrones MVP Gwendoline Christie to pop up this season, as well as Annette Badland (Doctor Who), Jefferson Hall (Vikings), Tim Rose (Star Wars), Brian Blessed (Star Wars) and Dan Starkey (Doctor Who).

The two-part Wizards vs. Aliens premiere airs Saturday, June 1st at 7PM on The Hub.
