If you’ve ever been a fan of the art of Simon Stålenhag then the new original Amazon Tales From The Loop will be immediately recognizable.
The just released trailer features all of the oddly mundane but fantastic science fiction landscapes and settings familiar to Stålenhag’s paintings, but somehow effectively rendered in live-action.
As if that weren’t enough, the series features the music of famed composer Philip Glass, whose work turns nearly anything into something even more profound. The plot is derived from the game of the same name that was also inspired by Stålenhag’s work.
Here’s how the science fictional world of the game is described:
“In 1954, the Swedish government ordered the construction of the world’s largest particle accelerator. The facility was complete in 1969, located deep below the pastoral countryside of Mälaröarna. The local population called this marvel of technology The Loop.
“The Mysteries let the characters encounter the strange machines and weird creatures that have come to haunt the countryside after the Loop was built. The kids get to escape their everyday problems and be part of something meaningful and magical – but also dangerous.”

The Amazon series starts on April 3.
