Surprise Ash Vs. Evil Dead Premiere
The audience at the Ash Vs. Evil Dead panel at New York’s Comic Con was surprised with a surprise premiere of the entire first episode, which according to Eric Goldman in an article on Deadline Hollywood was “a massive crowd-pleaser (…) with a ton of cheers throughout”.
The first episode of Ash vs. Evil Dead features footage from the first two Evil Dead movies.
In the series Ash (Bruce Campbell) returns “older, but hardly wiser” and fans of the series will enjoy the many nods to past events and moments.
New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless is also starring in Ash Vs. Evil Dead as “daughter of Necronomicon-studier Professor Raymond Knowby, who teams with Jones’ cop to hunt down Ash.”
She confirmed that there will not be any reference to her role as Xena: Warrior Princess.
“This world is so perfect, you can’t be throwing anything else into the mix”, said Lawless as reported in Entertainment Weekly.
