Storyline

The story of the series named The Wheel of Time is mainly concerned with a prophecy that states that a being called the Dragon shall be reincarnated. This reincarnation, known as the Dragon Reborn, has the power to either destroy the world or save it.

It is currently unknown how closely the show will follow the events of the book but that’s the general gist. Here’s the official synopsis from Amazon:

“Set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists and only certain women are allowed to access it, the story follows Moiraine, a member of the incredibly powerful all-female organization called the Aes Sedai, as she arrives in the small town of Two Rivers. There, she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women, one of whom is prophesied to be the Dragon Reborn, who will either save or destroy humanity.”

Filming

The principal photography of the series named The Wheel of Time Season 1 has started in September 2019. The filming was done in Prague until March 2020 but it has come to a halt due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Again the production has resumed by April 2021 and has ended in May 2021. The second installment has currently started its production. Filming on the sophomore season began on July 19, 2021.

The Wheel of Time has taken a long, long time to get to this stage. The series was first optioned by NBC all the way back in 2000. In the end, they didn’t go ahead with the project but there have been multiple attempts to adapt the series since then. The current project was first announced in 2017 but it did not seriously get started till 2018. So it has been a long wait for the fans but thankfully, there is just a little further to go.

Trailer

Amazon has recently released the trailer of the series named The Wheel of Time. The full trailer has came on the heels of three previously revealed promos. The first one has revealed the title treatment for the series which was released on 30th June 2021. The other two are consist of first-look teasers, one of them introduced Rosamund Pike as Moiraine that was released on 17th March and the second has featured Daniel Henney as Lan which was released on 28th April. Further, the Twitter account of The Wheel of Time has revealed a whole bunch of short clips featuring props, locations, and audio from the series.

Fans till now are expecting more trailers and teasers from the series as we all are getting close to the release date.

The First Season of The Wheel of Time will make its debut on Amazon Prime Video. Amazon has till now not made any announcement for season 2 but its production has begun in July.

Here we present the trailer:-

Cast

The fantasy series named The Wheel of Time stars Golden Globe-winning actor Rosamund Pike. It also features Josha Stradowski, Marcus Rutherford, Zoë Robins, Barney Harris, and Madeleine Madden as part of the main cast. Other cast members that have been announced for the series and will feature in this series are Daniel Henney, Michael McElhatton, Álvaro Morte, Hammed Animashaun, Alexandre Willaume, Johann Myers, Jennifer Cheon Garcia, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Daryl McCormack, Narinder Samra, Priyanka Bose, Emmanuel Imani, Taylor Napier, Kate Fleetwood, Christopher Sciueref, Juliet Howland, Mandi Symonds, Lolita Chakrabarti, Michael Tuahine, David Sterne, Abdul Salisb, Stuart Graham, Kae Alexander, Sophie Okonedo, Clare Perkins, Peter Franzén, Pasha Bocarie, Jennifer K Preston, and Darren Clarke.

Yes, that is a lot of actors. But the colossal cast is completely justified considering how many important characters there are in the books. To be honest, this is nothing compared to the full list of named characters that the source material actually has.

The book The Wheel of Time actually has 2782 characters (take that, Game of Thrones). While many of the characters will not make their way into the show. But it has come to know that about 35 character’s names and details have been confirmed so far which may appear in the second season.

Rosamund Pike plays Moiraine, a magic practitioner and member of the Aes Sedai, a powerful all-female organization. The story will begin by searching for the prophesied reincarnation of the Dragon, a powerful individual with the power to save the world or destroy it.

The subsequent episodes were written (in order) by Amanda Shuman, The Clarkson Twins, Dave Hill, Celine Song, and Justine Juel Gillmer. Judkins has already confirmed that its show will combine events from different books. And that’s just as well considering the novel series spans fifteen books, one prequel, and two companion books.

The Wheel of Time has taken a long, long time to get to this stage. The series was first optioned by NBC all the way back in 2000. In the end, they didn’t go ahead with the project but there have been multiple attempts to adapt the series since then.
