    Hey all, I was just wondering if there was any information on the documentary coming out. On IMDB it has it titled "The Wit of the Staircase: The Life and Work of Robert Jordan" and it's set to arrive in theaters on the 14th of December this year. I noticed that our very own founder was involved, so I assumed there would be some information on the forums, but I haven't found any. Then Movietickets doesn't have the movie listed anywhere, despite that it's supposed to be coming out in 4 days. I recently saw a 6 minute long clip which was in documentary form of Dragonmount's founder, Tor's owner, Brandon, and Harriet ... but aside from a short backstory, a brief mention of other works, and a lead-in to A Memory of Light there wasn't all that much. Was that the entire thing, or was it just a teaser for the documentary?

    I don't know a thing about this, but I would love to see it! I'll keep my eyes peeled.

    Hmm, according to IMDB and Wikipedia, the movie came out in December 2012, but I can't find it anywhere. Onward with the search!

    It has not been released yet nor am I sure if it's been finished completely. At Jordancon 2011, they showed what had been put together thus far for many of us....and lots of us cried quite a bit. But as of right now, I do not believe Hunter has finished "The Wit of The Staircase". I will ask him and see where things are in that process and get back to you.

    They have just completed some more shooting and are hoping to be done by the end of this year.

    Yay, thank you for the update. I'm very excited to see it when it is all complete. I'm almost done with aMoL, and I'd love to learn more of the history of my favorite author.

    I see that it has been a while since there were any updates on this ... does anyone know how far along the film is at this point?
