First Look Trailer For Sky Atlantic Epic Britannia

Sky Atlantic has unveiled a first look trailer for Britannia, written by Jez Butterworth (Spectre), where mystical Druids run free, invincible Celts reign unopposed and invading Romans try to bring them into line.

Set in 43AD, the drama follows the Roman army as they return to crush the Celtic heart of Britannia, a mysterious land led by warrior women and powerful Druids who claim to channel the powerful forces of the underworld.

Like never before, the nine-part series tells the story of the emotional and physical power struggle between three tribes: the Druids, Celts and Romans, who battle for the heart of Britannia.

The cast includes: Mackenzie Crook (Detectorists) as leader of the Druids, Veran; Kelly Reilly (True Detective) as fearless Celtic princess Kerra; David Morrissey (The Walking Dead) as the head of the invading Roman army, Aulus; Nikolaj Lie Kaas (Follow The Money) as rogue Druid Divis; and Zoë Wanamaker (Harry Potter) as Celtic Queen Antedia.

Britannia airs early next year on Sky Atlantic.
