The trailer shows a lot of imagery that is disturbing or violent, but it does not reveal much about the storyline of Wheel of Time. The Dragon’s banner can be seen flying in one shot. Others suggest that the world prior to the Breaking looked very similar to ours — something the characters of the TV series wouldn’t have realized.
The Wheel of Time is a fantasy novel by Brandon Sanderson that is based in a world where only women can channel the One Power to create magic. Moiraine is on a quest for the prophesied world’s savior. She meets five young people from the village of Two Rivers. They will be caught up in a global conflict as each discovers their own power. If one of them can channel, they’ll both be in danger.
The premiere of The Wheel of Time Season 1 and The Wheel of Time Origins will be on Amazon November 19.
