Rosamund Pike Cast as Moiraine in Wheel of Time Series

-

Rosamund Pike is set to play the lead role of Moiraine in the upcoming Amazon Wheel of Time series, according to EW. There is no release date for the series. Moiraine is a member of the Aes Sedai, an all female group of scientists, healers, and philosophers in the Robert Jordan book series. Moiraine assists the prophesied Dragon Reborn in his quest to save the world.

Based upon Robert Jordan’s best-selling fantasy novels, which have sold more than 90 million copies worldwide, the series was adapted for TV by Rafe Judkins (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Chuck) who also serves as showrunner, and is co-produced by Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television. The Wheel of Time series will premiere globally on Amazon Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories.


The Wheel of Time series is set in a sprawling, epic world where magic exists, but only women can use it. Meaning that in this series — women hold the keys to power. The story follows Moiraine, a member of the shadowy and influential all-female organization called the ‘Aes Sedai’ as she embarks on a dangerous, world-spanning journey with five young men and women. Moiraine’s interested in these five because she 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.

Judkins serves as showrunner and executive producer. Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon of Red Eagle Entertainment, Ted Field and Mike Weber of Radar Pictures (BeirutJumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) and Darren Lemke (Shrek Forever After) are Executive Producers. Harriet McDougal is a consulting producer.
