Wheel of Time TV Show to be Released by Amazon

A new announcement from Amazon Studios list The Wheel of Time as one of the shows they’ve ordered for Amazon Prime.

 



Amazon Studios has ordered “The Wheel of Time,” an action fantasy series based on Robert Jordan’s bestselling fantasy novels, which have sold more than 90 million copies worldwide. Rafe Judkins (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) adapted the material into a series and serves as showrunner.

 

Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television are co-producing the series, which was announced by Jennifer Salke, the head of Amazon Studios, at a show-and-tell in London on Tuesday. “The Wheel of Time” will premiere globally on Amazon Prime Video.

 

Set in an epic world where magic exists but only women can use it, “The Wheel of Time” follows Moiraine, a member of the shadowy and influential all-female organization called the “Aes Sedai,” as she embarks on a dangerous journey with five young men and women across the world. Moiraine is interested in these five “because she believes one of them might be the reincarnation of an incredibly powerful individual, who prophecies say will either save humanity or destroy it,” Amazon said in a statement.

 

An interesting spin on the story, which does feature strong, female characters.  You can read the whole article from Variety

Good to hear this news and will keep open mind about TV series, though I know it will be a while until we see the TV show.

 

On book TSR right now. Love the series though I got to give positive complaint to TOR. The current paperback edition etc. that I own has page number typo error about the author. About the author RJ is printed to start on page 1006. It really starts on page 1007. For crying out loud whoever does the publishing get page numbers right! 

 

Also in hardcover TSR in glossary about artur hawkwing, the text is incomplete and fades to white, so you cannot read it. That is a mistake on TORs part.

 

Another typo error in TGH hardcover dustjacket synopsis. "the leader of the aes of sedai who may intend to gentle him." It should read "the leader of the aes sedai who may intend to gentle him". As far as I know the rest of TWOT books are ok.

 

I can live with minor typo errors in words in books. TWOT series is so complex you have to give HJ some slack. 

 

So TOR if you ever put out a new edition of TSR get page numbers right.

 

Will continue to enjoy TWOT series, and looking forward to TV series and also Unfettered 2. Happy holidays to everyone.
