Earlier today, Wheel of Time showrunner Rafe Judkins took to Twitter to announce that the TV adaptation will start filming.
In the short video post, Judkins noted that the WoT’s first day of principal photograph also coincides with the 12th anniversary of author Robert Jordan’s death. Judkins states, “So as much as I’m excited about this new endeavor that we are all embarking on, I am also quite humbled and honored to remember the man who began all of this. Tai’shar Rigney.”
