Amazon’s massive (non-Lord of the Rings) fantasy series, The Wheel of Time, is almost here, and the show’s latest trailer gives fans a preview of how the story starts.

The trailer introduces us to Moiraine Damodred (Rosemund Pike), who is a member of the Aes Sedai, a group of women trained in a magical art known as channeling. In order to stop the impending approach of an evil force called the Dark One, agents of the Aes Sedai travel the world looking for potential magic-users who could help save it.

This quest brings Moiraine and her Warder (basically her bodyguard) Lan Mandragoran (Daniel Henney), to the small town of Emond’s Field where they meet Rand al’Thor (Josha Stradowski), Mat Cauthon (Barney Harris), Perrin Aybara (Marcus Rutherford), Egwene al’Vere (Madeleine Madden), and Nynaeve al’Meara (Zoë Robins). Moiraine believes that one, or maybe all, of these five young people could be the key to stopping the Dark One and saving the world.

The Wheel of Time’s first season will have eight episodes and will begin streaming on Amazon Prime video on Nov. 19. Amazon has already renewed the show for a second season.
