From the depths of the ocean to the expanses of a futuristic world, Jason Momoa is soaring to new heights in the first look at Apple’s upcoming fantasy saga series, See.
In footage shown as part of a sizzle reel of new Apple TV+ shows, Momoa, 39, is seen clad in furs in his role as Baba Voss, a character described as a warrior, leader, and guardian in an epic-scale sci-fi drama series penned by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders) and directed by Francis Lawrence (Red Sparrow, The Hunger Games). Alfre Woodard, 66, plays the character of Paris, a priestess and advisor to Baba Voss.
See explores a world in which all its inhabitants are blind. “Try to think about the world this way: heard, touched, smelled, sensed. Imagine every human experience available to you — love, joy, discovery, despair, and home — imagine it was all experienced this way … without seeing,” Momoa teased.
Woodard gave more details about See‘s setting, saying it takes place centuries after a virus wiped out most of Earth’s inhabitants and left the only survivors blind. As new generations are born blind, they construct a new world on Earth that is “designed and built to be experienced without sight.”
“In this world, we have our evil queens, brave heroes, and thrilling adventure, but beyond the adventure, See will ask questions you may have already started asking yourselves…how much of my experience of the world is visual? Without sight, will it change who I am?” Woodard said.
