re: Filming Wheel of Time, (First leaked production shot out there)
I'm just saying because we are in for MUCH bigger changes than this.

Probably eliminations of large plot points, beefed up roles for characters like Logain (this is confirmed), combining multiple characters into one role, shifting things from different books together or changing the timeline, etc etc.

I know we're a long ways away, but I'll go on record now that if they frick up Androl I will be pissed.

It is highly, highly unlikely he will even exist. He was purely a creation of Sanderson with no basis in any RJ notes or anything else, because he couldn't get a feel for Logain and wanted to create "some new magic" with a new character.

Its likely someone like Logain will just take on that role.

I agree. My understanding is Androl was Sanderson's opportunity to make at least a small part of the story his own. He was extremely well developed, and his magical skill set was important in how the last battle played out, though anyone who ever played the videogame Portal knows that there were many overlooked opportunities to take advantage of that skill. His interaction with Pevara in the final couple of books was beautifully done, showing the sea change that would be expected in the future as the stigma of male channeling fell away.

The resolution of the black tower difficulties can definitely be done with logain and a host of unnamed lackeys

Loggains beefed up role is going to be awesome.

SPOILERS BELOW

Thought he was chosen one spurred on by corrupt aes sedai / world ruling magic organization, captured, freed, helps take down same organization, becomes the most important disciple of the chosen one, now has to lead a fight against the corrupt half of the new big magic organization into final battle.

Getting more pov and insight into this story arc is going to be great.

I kind of feel like Jordan didnt know what he was working with in terms of logain at the beginning, how great of a story he created.

The world is so big there are several very interesting characters and substorys that we didnt have time to get in to.

Showrunner answering a lot of questions in his instagram story. Most of his answers seem very reassuring

Are they delaying shooting or anything due to the corona virus? Looking forward to the show about a quarter way through Winters Heart right now. Path of Daggers was surprisingly good.

Path of Daggers was good, Winters Heart is meh but had some good parts at the end. Crossroads of twilight was rough, just not much happens in the book, lot of set up, but then knife of dreams is good.

He said that they were slowed down but have been able to do work, visual effects, etc. so it isn't a total standstill but I'm sure it will push release date back.

Yes, they are shut down. They had the last two episodes left to film. They are however working on the first 6 in terms of editing and visual FX, and working on writing out season 2 a bit.

They will have to go back this summer when its over and film the last two episodes. Likely means coming out at the end of 2020 is a dream and it'll be 2021 at best.

Yes, very.

Seems to indicate at the very least that Min is in Season 1, and possibly Elayne as well, we just haven't seen the casting yet.

Some other pretty reassuring answers that he "gets it".

And I dont know if this old news or not, but saw today that they had the game of thrones costume designer on board now. Definitely a good pick up

Not sure if this was common knowledge, but one of the companies working on VFX for the show also is working on/worked on Black Widow, Mulan, No Time to Die, and Venom 2.

So pretty big work, VFX should not be a problem.
