Legend of the Seeker Comic-Con Panel Update

News contributed by Barbara Davies

Cinemablend.com has an indepth look at what happened during the Wizards First Rule (now known as Legend of the Seeker) panel with Sam Raimi, Terry Goodkind, Rob Tapert and Kenneth Biller.

The story of the Wizard's First Rule panel at Comic Con is simply this: If you're a fan of the books, prepare to be miserable. If you're a fan of Sam Raimi or Xena: Warrior Princess, get ready to relive the syndicated television fantasy magic of the mid-90s.

Sam Raimi and author of the "Wizard's First Rule" series of fantasy books Terry Goodkind, showed up at the San Diego Comic Con this year to talk about Raimi's new syndicated television series based on Goodkind's books. Joining them were show executive producers Robert Tapert and Kenneth Biller. Goodkind made his philosophy regarding the project pretty clear from the outset. His plan? Hand it over and let Raimi do whatever the heck he wants with it. Says Goodkind, "They're going to do things for the right reasons. These are the most talented people in the world. Let them find the path to accomplish this story on the screen, and do it the best way it can be done. It doesn't mean they're going to constantly follow the story… but they're going to do stories inspired by the books."
