Amazon Prime Video's "The Wheel of Time" Comes to Times Square
The Aes Sedai are preparing for war and are turning to New Yorkers to help. This Friday, as Prime Video is set to launch its newest series The Wheel of Time, fans are invited to come to Times Square to bear witness to one of the series’ exciting battle scenes coming to life before their eyes. Through the magic of anamorphic technology, a digitized Moraine (series lead Rosamund Pike) will leap out of a billboard, to face her enemies (including the Fade), as a street team of Aes Sedai soldiers on horseback will be ready to aid her in battle. While you may have seen anamorphic billboards in the past, this will mark the FIRST time one has featured a human being. In addition to the magical billboard and incredible experiential battle scene, Prime Video has more in store for NYC on November 19th. Fans can also stop in at the Amazon Bookstore on 34th street through 11/29 to check out a massive book installation encouraging visitors to wield the One Power through fiber optic lighting and sensing technology, creating a magical shareable (and Instagrammable) moment. For those who can’t make it to Times Square on November 19th, Prime Video will also be livestreaming the happenings on Twitch starting at 6:30pm ET, using multiple cameras to give viewers at home a front row seat to all of the magic. This exciting live stream will lead into their watch party of the premiere episode.
Venue: Times Square
