What is The Wheel of Time about? 

Based on Robert Jordan’s beloved book series, the synopsis for the upcoming show reads: “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 organisation 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.” 

Is there a The Wheel of Time trailer?

The trailer is set to be released, but in the meantime, we have been treated to the first-look poster of Rosamund in the role of Moiraine. In the photo, the I Care A Lot actress can be seen with long dark hair instead of her usual blonde tresses, while wearing a navy blue cloak and standing at the doorway of what appears to be a gateway.

Although we don’t have an exact date just yet, the series will be available on Amazon Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide in November 2021.
