Another beloved fantasy novel series has gotten the TV treatment.
Following in the footsteps of HBO, who developed Game of Thrones for TV, and Netflix, who successfully launched the Shadow and Bone series, Amazon Prime Video is now a competitor in the fantasy genre thanks to their upcoming TV adaptation of Robert Jordan‘s novels, The Wheel of Time.
On Sept. 2, the streaming service launched the first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated show starring Rosamund Pike. The new footage follows Moiraine (Pike), who is a part of a magical order made up of all women, called Aes Sedai. Upon her arrival in Two Rivers, Moiraine “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,” Amazon Prime Video teased in the description.
For those unfamiliar with The Wheel of Time, it is known for being one of the most popular fantasy series of all time, no pun intended, having sold over 90 million books.
