The Amazon Studios-produced show is an adaptation of the fantasy book series of the same name
Amazon has released the first teaser for The Wheel of Time, the magical fantasy series based on the books by Robert Jordan. The teaser gives us a glimpse of the magical world created by the show.
The teaser starts off with a voice over from Moiraine, played by Rosamund Pike, as we get to see her growing up in the village of Edmond’s Field. The teaser sets up the story, gives a lay of the land and introduces the audience to the powers of magic and some action.
For those who have to read the fantasy book series, The Wheel of Time is set in a fantasy world where only some women have access to magic. The story follows Moiraine and an organisation of powerful magical women called Aes Sedai.
Apart from Pike, the series will also star Sophie Okonedo as Siuan Sanche, Kae Alexander as Min Farshaw, Kate Fleetwood as Liandrin Guirale, Peter Franzen as Stephin, Daniel Henney as al’Lan Mandragoran, Maria Doyle Kennedy as Illa and Priyanka Bose as Alanna Mosvani.
The Wheel of Time, which is looking to be the next big fantasy series, will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on November 19. The series has already been renewed for a second season and production began in July.
