"The Wheel of Time" on Amazon Prime

Production continues on the Amazon Prime Video live-action adaptation of the first book in "The Wheel Of Time" fantasy series, by author Robert Jordan, drawing on numerous elements of European, Asian culture and philosophy, most notably 'the cyclical nature of time':

"...'The Wheel of Time'  is set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists, but only women can use it, including 'Moiraine', a member of the shadowy and influential all-female organization 'Aes Sedai', as she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women.

"Moiraine believes one of them might be the reincarnation of an incredibly powerful individual, whom prophecies say will either save humanity or destroy it..."

Amazon Prime Video will bring the one-hour fantasy drama to over 200 markets. The series is being adapted by Rafe Judkins ("Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.") and is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Amazon Studios.

The first book in the series, "The Eye of the World" was published in 1990. The series concluded in 2013 with the final three installments - "The Gathering Storm"...

..."Towers of Midnight" and "A Memory of Light" completed by fan and fantasy author Brandon Sanderson after Jordan’s death in 2007.
