I’m really curious to see how this turns out, as the book series feels unfilmable to me. I assume cuts will be numerous and vast.
I’m also interested in how they’ll handle the 90s-era gender politics. The books do make it possible to queer things while holding on to the lore’s gender essentialism, though it’s tricky to do that without getting into some pretty problematic territory. There’s one bit in particular I’m really worried about.
I’m also worried about Amazon committing to both this and a LOTR series, as there’s no way they’ll want to maintain both of those.
Also the casting is pretty diverse for a fantasy series, which is refreshing.
