Whatever happens now, there’s no turning back.
“The Wheel of Time” trailer promises an epic adventure in a similar vein to “The Lord of the Rings,” where battles between the forces of good and evil take place. The trailer emphasizes the importance of the unsuspecting heroes as Moiraine seeks to protect them from The Dark One. And all of the fight sequences and soaring landscape shots are accompanied beautifully by the incredible score from David Buckley.
The thing that should excite fans the most is the confirmation of a premiere date, namely November 19. We know there will be eight episodes of Season 1 (via Nerdist), and Amazon clearly has a lot of confidence in the story already. The company has solidified plans for Season 2 even before Season 1 has a chance to air (via Deadline). The novel series has 15 volumes in addition to some auxiliary materials, so there’s plenty for the writers to adapt from for a long time to come.
The trailer shows just how much world-building will take place within the first season alone, allowing fans and newcomers alike to pick up the story quickly and become wrapped up in its enchanting world. For the next great fantasy series, you know where to be on November 19.
