    So, on Thursday, January 4th, Rafe Judkins, the showrunner hired by Sony for the Wheel of Time Series, posted this to Twitter:

    This definitely made people curious, as they're very well-read copies of the books, and we're all excited for some kind of news. However, it seemed like this was just a weird teaser, until...

    HollywoodReporter posted an article on the recent Jumanji remake, of all things, and it included a line about "The Wheel of Time" television series.

    Right now, it seems like we're waiting to hear more, but anything else we hear will be posted here!

    It’s very encouraging to see that the people people running it have read the books!

    Yeah, that look a but like the version of EotW that I brought to Honduras, and to US and other places.

    It is kept together with duct tape

    I've got several copies that look like that of different books in the series! Perhaps it means we will have someone stick closely to the storyline?

    :lol No, I totally get it. I mean, he's apparently a long-term fan of the series, so I assume he's read all of the books already and is just doing a refresher of the first few right now to get a feel for how the plot would develop as a television show.

    And let's be honest, taking a picture of the entire series is difficult to do without a satellite camera :arch

    It's difficult not to feel jaded :cheese I'm excited that we have development like this, though - especially if Harriett is working closely on this project.

    Also, @Adanys Wynterwulf , that sounds like it could a really fun contest.

    Also the first three books are basically the same subplot. The later books just build on the resolution and discovery of The Dragon Reborn.

    @Dovienya el'Korim using a sat cam, or taking a pic of the entire series? ;)
    It could be a great way for people to showcase their collection.
