A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

First look at The Wheel of Time on Amazon Prime

  • Entertainment Weekly releases the first look of The Wheel of Time cast in epic photoshoot.


We finally have our first extensive look at Amazon Prime upcoming TV show, The Wheel of Time. The Entertainment Weekly September issue features an exclusive article with photos of the main cast in costume. This is our first peek at many of the main characters we all know and love.

 

Inside the article, showrunner Rafe Judkins describes the process of bringing the book series to life, and the article compares the book length against other popular fantasy series.

 

Quote

“We literally built Shadar Logoth from scratch just for 15 minutes of airtime, because it’s that important to the series,” Judkins says of the infamous abandoned city, which is haunted by such dark energy that even the monstrous Trollocs hunting our protagonists fear to tread there. “That’s where is becomes very clear it’s not just the forces of good and evil. There are lots of different angles.”

 

The photos are all stunning and have us fans swooning all over social media.

The shot of the Emond’s Field Five, includes Zoë Robins as Nynaeve, Barney Harris as Mat, Daniel Henney as Lan, Rosamund Pike as Moiraine, Madeleine Madden as Egwene, Marcus Rutherford as Perrin, and Josha Stradowski as Rand. The magnificent seven look travel worn and their costumes look lived in.

We also see a photo of Moiraine and Lan entering the city of Shadar Logoth, with the city feeling especially creepy.

The article includes a shot of Rand and Egwene sitting in the mountains giving us a hint at their complex relationship.

And an incredible shot of Priyanka Bose as Alanna with Álvaro Morte as Logain locked in an elaborate cage.

 

You can read the article here and the magazine will be on newsstands August 20th, 2021.

 

These photos are gorgeous and give us just a hint of what to expect from the TV show this November! For more about the upcoming TV show, visit our TV info page.

These are perfect!!! 

I'm so excited they gave us something.

 

Love it. 

All of it.

 

And Rafe's answers. 

My confidence that the show is going to be awesome has quadrupled. 

 

I mean, even the positioning in the cast photo is perfect. Having Rand and Nynaeve furthest from Moiraine.

Those look good. I was worried about perrin looking the part, but he does.

mat is strange with a beard, perhaps the one I have most trouble identifying with the character.

 

EDIT: Rafe said that he was going to answer 5 questions. where are those? I can't find

It was on Twitter. 

I heard the answers on the Dusty Wheel's Wednesday show...which is a great time.

aww sucks. Besides the part about mat's beard, everything else is useless. I blame those who wasted answers on such silly questions

I just bought the magazine and was NOT prepared for seeing the big main image even though I'd seen it online already. GAHHHHHHHHH  It is finally starting to feel real to me and I am FREAKING out. Such a great article. I NEED a huge print of that first image for my office like ASAP!!!

i have no idea, actually. perhaps some of the details that some of the more detail-oriented people are freaking about in forum? that could have been something useful to ask.

 

but stuff like "will the dream world be in the show" is pretty obvious the answer is yes. stuff like "is there someone late on set", since acting is a job, i assume if there was someone always late, they'd get fired, and if not, it's private and not going to be disclosed. and stuff like "are you excited" and its variations, no, it's not going to give us anything.

Yup, you're right. 

But ironically if one watches interviews on the news, it's the same way... Almost always dumb questions these days. 

 

Although, I had a teacher once who said, "There's no such thing as a stupid question. Just stupid people who ask questions!"

Lan and Perrin look out of shape. I think it's just bad promo shots, but who knows. I can totally see Nynaeve looking like Zoë Robins, but Perrin and Lan look way off to me. Lan looks too "pretty" and I would expect  him to be the the tallest form of the bunch. Perrin is supposed to have the arms and shoulders of a blacksmith, instead he just looks oafish.

 

Maybe I should stop re-reading the books and accept the series as something sperate and unique from them.
