The highly anticipated third season of AMC and Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead has started shooting, and we have a new behind the scenes video and our first official image of Danai Gurira as Michonne. With a heck of an introduction in the season finale, viewers wait with baited breath for the Katana-weilding fan favorite. Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive first image.
Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead and the show’s executive producer, talked aobut how she will translate from print to screen:
The essence of the character — her personality, her motives, everything that makes Michonne Michonne — remains intact from the comics, but like a lot of things on the show, there will be little tweaks and differences here and there. We saw that her introduction is slightly different from how it was in the comic, and her interaction with Andrea is really going to be a really cool addition to the character that I think will get television viewers up to speed, and they’ll get to know her a lot faster than comic book readers did.
Kirkman also had some nice things to say about Danai Gurira who is probably known for the HBO Treme and how they decided she was Michonne. Kirkman also had this to say about The Prison, which we saw teased in the finale. They are shooting the hell out of this prison. It just looks absolutely stunning, and I think when people start seeing trailers and stuff for this season, I think people are just gonna be like, “Wait, what? This is what? I can’t believe this is a TV show!” It’s really creepy, really moody and it’s just gonna be really awesome. You can read the full rundown by clicking here. For now, feast your eyes on our Michonne and enjoy the behind the scenes teaser for season 3.
