Videos: Legion First-Look Video Explores The Show's Unusual World

A video has been released for Legion.

This first-look featurette of the upcoming FX series attempts to explain what the X-Men drama is all about. The series is about the son of Charles Xavier, David Haller. He has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and is dealing with the fact that he could be the most powerful person on the planet. Creator Noah Hawley said that “He doesn’t know if what he’s seeing is real or not real and the audience should have that same experience. The structure of the story should reflect the content of the story, so you play with the structure, and we play a lot with reality and memory and dream. There are some familiar comic book elements to it, and then sometimes … there’s music or dancing, and sometimes there’s fighting, and sometimes it’s funny.”

It is set to premier on February 8, 2017 on FX at 8PM EST and stars Dan Stevens, Mackenzie Gray, Scott Lawrence, Aubrey Plaza, Katie Aselton, Bill Irwin and Jean Smart.
