Ridley Scott has shared the official trailer for his new science-fiction series Raised by Wolves. The HBO Max series revolves around two androids Mother and Father tasked with developing and nurturing human children on a mysterious, desolate virgin planet after the Earth is destroyed by a great war.
However, everything about the mother is pretty creepy. She narrates the story of the Three Little Pigs to the children and she warns them of a Big Bad Wolf which will come to eat them. Pretty soon, we do get to see the proverbial villain attacking the children and the android. However, she rises to the occasion and it is she whom we must trust.
