Syfy is taking on the ambitious task of adapting one of science fiction’s greatest novels for the big screen. But how well with “Childhood’s End” live up to Arthur C. Clarke’s original vision? And how will they portray the themes of the book? Allow Charles Dance and the rest of the cast to explain, in this exclusive featurette.

One thing’s pretty clear: This six-hour, three-night miniseries is going to look pretty gorgeous, and they’re aiming to tackle some huge questions. And it’s great to see Colm Meaney back in science fiction!

Julian McMahon, Charles Dance, Mike Vogel, Daisy Betts, Osy Ikhile and Yael Stone (To name a few), who star in Syfy’s new “Childhood’s End” talk about what it means to be a part of a utopian society. “Childhood’s End” looks at a peaceful alien invasion of Earth by the mysterious “Overlords”. The group’s arrival begins decades of apparent utopia under indirect alien rule, but at the cost of human identity and culture.
