The networks have been searching for a show to mimic “Game of Thrones”‘ level of popularity ever since HBO premiered “Game of Thrones.”According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix’s first season of “The Witcher” broke record viewing numbers. Amazon is committing to the fantasy genre with this ambitious (and expensive) move, showing how much attention it pays to the genre.
Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson wrote fourteen novels of the Wheel of Time series, including a prequel novella, “New Spring,” which tells the story of the world set in the series. Two years after the release of the 11th book, Jordan sadly passed away in 2007, leaving the future of the series in question. Sanderson completed the epic fantasy series’ final three books, overseeing Jordan’s longtime editor and wife and taking detailed notes from Jordan. Finally, Amazon will release it soon.
The Release Date for The Wheel of Time
There won’t be that much longer to wait for “The Wheel of Time” to premiere its first season. Unlike Netflix, Amazon continues to release episodes weekly instead of in binges as it has done in the past. There’s no need to worry about binge-watchers getting too sucked into the series since Amazon Prime Video is planning to release all three episodes at once on November 19. Afterward, episodes will be released weekly until December 24.
The Wheel of Time: Season 1 Cast: Who’s in it?
High fantasy books like “The Wheel of Time” feature a wide variety of characters. Aes Sedai, a vast cabal of magical women known as Aes Sedai, is so enormous that keeping track of them has even become a joke within the fandom. Although some of the core cast members will have to be replaced in the Amazon adaptation, most of them are already lined up.
Rosamund Pike will probably be the biggest star. Throughout the series, she will portray the Aes Sedai Moiraine Damodred. Aes Sedai is an elite group of females who possess the One Power. Josh Stradowski will play Rand al’Thor, the major protagonist in the book series. As Perrin Aybara and Mat Cauthon, respectively, Marcus Rutherford and Barney Harris add their voices to the story’s three-legged ta’veren stool that props up the majority of plot developments.
Unprecedented Details About the World are Revealed in the Trailer
On September 2, Amazon released a trailer for the show, showing off the Two Rivers folk and Tar Valon, which is also home to the White Tower. After trying to bring the epic narrative to screen for 20 years and being delayed by COVID-19, the release date for the sweeping fantasy epic “The Wheel of Time” is rapidly approaching (via Deadline). Now that Amazon has released the first trailer for the series, you can see even more of Robert Jordan’s painstakingly detailed world that was created.
The television adaptation of the movie has already been renewed for a second season after completing eight episodes in its first season. The Wheel of Time trailer shows Amazon is confident the movie will be successful, and the company wants to build up the momentum so it can buoy its popularity.
The Wheel of Time Season 1 Plot: What Happens?
“Some believe that one of these people may be the reincarnation of an extremely powerful individual who, according to prophecy, either saves or destroys humanity.” Compared to “The Eye of the World,” this description would be more or less consistent with the story, though we’ll witness quite a bit of action that doesn’t appear on the pages of the books.
