A new book titled “Fairy Tale” is “frightened” for viewers in a world where there is “no fairy tale,” says “Supernatural” star Jensen Ackles.
“There’s no fairy tale anymore,” said the actor in an interview with “Good Morning America” on Thursday.
Ackles also spoke about how he and his “Supernormal” co-stars have been fighting back against a “fear” that the show’s “fairytale” nature might be alienating its audience.
The movie will open on Nov. 20 in the United States and is set in New York City in the 1960s.
Supernatural’s Drew Goddard and Jared Padalecki star as Dean Winchester and Sam Winchester, respectively, in the hit CW show.
The book comes out Nov. 10.
The author, John R. Allen, said in the book that “Superreal” fans have been telling him how “familiar” it is with “fantasy and horror.”
He said he hopes his book will help them “avoid that trap.”
Allen said he’s writing “a book that’s not the most fantastical, the most ridiculous, the least realistic.”
“I’m not trying to make this book the best book, I’m just trying to write a book that will hopefully help people avoid those traps,” he said.
Allen said “Fantasy” fans also told him they felt like they “were the only ones in the room with us” when it came to the series’ supernatural elements.
“When I see a fan say, ‘I was the only one with a supernatural element in ‘Fantasy,'” he said, “I’m like, ‘Wow, you have a different kind of perspective.'”
Allen said that the book “is not just a fantasy.”
“There are all sorts of stories about ‘fantasy’ that we tell and that’s the book,” he added.
“It’s a story that we live with.”
