Day one of JordanCon 2021 is in the books. Let us recap, starting with breaking news:
- A recorded video message for JordanCon from showrunner Rafe Judkins was played for the audience in the Show Teasers panel. Rafe broke the news that “there should be a trailer dropping by the end of the summer”. This not only gives us an estimated date to look forward to, but also tells us that Rafe’s appearance at Comic-Con will not include a first look at a trailer.
- In other interesting news, show consultant Sarah Nakamura revealed that the non-release of titles for episodes 7 and 8 is easily explained by the changing of the guards in social media account handling from Rafe and Company to Amazon.
- You can watch the JordanCon 2021 Opening Ceremonies here.
- CouchCon: The Dusty Wheel managed to broadcast live from a couch, in the lobby, and it was fantastic!
- You can also watch the Show Teasers panel, where the Rafe message was first played. Two of our good friends from Talk’aran’rhiod participated in the panel.
- The official twitter account for The Wheel of Time TV series posted the following twitter message for JordanCon
