Amazon just dropped The Wheel of Time teaser trailer and it looks incredible

It’s been a long, LONG time coming, but The Wheel of Time TV series is finally, nearly here. On November 19, 2021, the first three episodes of Amazon’s series based on the best-selling books, will be available to stream on Prime. New episodes will arrive each Friday, leading to the season finale on December 24.

And if that wasn’t enough to get you all the way excited, Amazon also released a teaser trailer for the series, giving us our first look at the Two Rivers, Rand, Matt, Perrin, Egwene, Lan and more. The trailer does a great job of showing the epic scope Amazon is going for with The Wheel of Time as well as planting the seeds of the mysteries deeply embedded within the lore of the books.

As described by Amazon, “The Wheel of Time is one of the most popular and enduring fantasy series of all time, with more than 90 million books sold. Set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists and only certain women are allowed to access it, the story follows Moiraine (Rosamund Pike), 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. “

The Wheel of Time also has an Aussie connection with actress Madeleine Madden (Tomorrow When the War Began) starring as Egwene Al’Vere. Other cast members include;

  • Rosamund Pike as Moiraine, an Aes Sedai
  • Josha Stradowski as Rand al’Thor
  • Marcus Rutherford as Perrin Aybara
  • Zoë Robins as Nynaeve al’Meara
  • Barney Harris as Mat Cauthon
  • Madeleine Madden as Egwene al’Vere
  • Daniel Henney as al’Lan Mandragoran
  • Michael McElhatton as Tam al’Thor
  • Álvaro Morte as Logain Abla

Make sure to set your calendars for November 19 because, from everything we’ve seen so far, it looks like The Wheel of Time is going to be amazing.
