The first trailer for Amazon’s The Wheel of Time adaptation is here, and it offers viewers a taste of what’s in store from the highly anticipated series.
Based on the best selling fantasy series of the same name by author Robert Jordan, The Wheel of Time takes place in a world where magic exists, but only certain women are allowed to access it. It’s there that we meet Morianne (Rosamund Pike)— a member of an incredibly powerful group of women known as the Ages Sedai.
When Morianne arrives in the small town of Two Rivers, she suddenly finds herself embarking on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with a group of five individuals, one of whom has been prophesied to be the Dragon Reborn, and holds the power to either save or destroy humanity.
