Apple's Tim Cook introduced the trailer for See at the 2019 iPhone event.


Jason Momoa will get to flex his post-Aquaman muscles on the Apple TV Plus subscription service for its exclusive original shows and films. Apple unveiled the trailer for Momoa's new series See at its Tuesday event showcasing new iPhones

"Vision is only a myth," we hear a voice say in the trailer. The drama is set centuries in the future when humans have lost the ability to see -- until children born with vision start coming into the world. 

The trailer goes all in on a grim universe where Momoa must protect those precious kids. The future looks pretty primitive. People go around on horseback and battle it out with arrows and axes.

Apple originally announced See at a splashy event in March, but this is our first close look at the show. See looks like it will by vying for the the kind of audience that made Game of Thrones such a huge hit. Apple also announced Tuesday that Apple TV Plus will launch Nov. 1 at $4.99 a month
