Amazon Prime Video has debuted the teaser trailer for the long-awaited series adaptation of Robert Jordan’s bestselling fantasy novel series The Wheel of Time, starring Oscar nominee Rosamund Pike as Moiraine. The series is currently slated to premiere on Friday, November 19.
Based on the bestselling novel series by Robert Jordan, The Wheel of Time is set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists, but only women can use it.

Moiraine believes one of them might be the reincarnation of an incredibly powerful individual, whom prophecies say will either save humanity or destroy it. The series draws on numerous elements of European and Asian culture and philosophy, most notably the cyclical nature of time found in Buddhism and Hinduism
