THE WHEEL OF TIME Stills Give Us A First Look At The Main Characters Of Amazon's Fantasy Adaptation
Amazon recently set a premiere date for its adaptation of Robert Jordan's sprawling series of fantasy novels, The Wheel of Time, and we now have a first look at the main characters via some new images.
Amazon recently set a November premiere date for The Wheel of Time and shared a poster featuring Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, Jack Reacher, Die Another Day) as the powerful Aes Sedai, Moiraine Damodred, and the streamer (via EW) has now released some new stills giving us a first glimpse of the rest of the main players.
Egwene al'Vere (Madeleine Madden) and Rand al'Thor (Josha Stradowski) can be seen sharing what is sure to be a rare quiet moment, while we also get a look at magic-wielding villain Logain (Álvaro Morte) in a cage.
The third image sees warrior Lan (Daniel Henney) protecting a fallen Moiraine from the dark power of Shadar Logoth, and finally, we have a group shot of the heroic adventurers as they embark on their journey.
Check out the photos below, and keep an eye out for that first trailer very soon.
"Wheel of Time is the first fantasy series that really dove into the political and cultural worlds of all these different characters," says showrunner Rafe Judkins. "It was also one of the first to dive into multiple POV characters, so you're following an ensemble, with each of them having their own agendas and approaches to everything. That's always felt to me like the missing piece of the fantasy-literature landscape that hasn't been brought to TV or film yet."
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.
