‘Wheel Of Time’: Amazon Adaptation Gets Poster & Premiere Date Hint
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.
Alongside Pike, the drama also stars Josha Stradowski (‘SpangaS’) as Rand Al’Thor, Marcus Rutherford (‘Obey’) who portrays Perrin Aybara, Zoe Robins (‘Power Rangers Ninja Steel’) playing Nynaeve, Barney Harris (‘Clique’) as Mat Cauthon, and Madeleine Madden (‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’) who is playing Egwene Al’Vere.
