Amazon’s Wheel of Time Cast
The wheel of time
The first segment of the panel will feature The Wheel of Time, with a chat with showrunner Rafe Judkins. This epic fantasy story presents a world where magic is limited to certain women and follows the story of Moiraine, a member of a powerful all-female organization called Aes Sedai. Moiraine sets out on a journey with a group of men and women, one of whom is prophesied to become the savior or destroyer of humanity.
Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.01 Once upon a time
The second segment will focus on the fourth and final chapter of Evangelion’s theatrical editions and feature a conversation with the series’ writer and general manager, Hideaki Anno. Known as the Rebuild of Evangelion, the four-movie series tells the original story of the Neon Genesis Evangelion anime, in which a teenage mecha pilot named Shinji Ikari battles mysterious creatures called Angels. This final entry, Once Upon a Time, will complete the story. The series has been in development for over a decade, with the first film launching in Japan in 2007. The fourth launched in Japan in March and will be available on Amazon Prime Video on August 13.
Leverage effect: buyout
A cover of the original 2008 Leverage TV show, Leverage: Redemption is an action crime drama on IMDb TV.

SOZ soldiers or zombies
The penultimate segment of the panel will cover the soldiers or zombies of SOZ and feature showrunner Nico Entel. This Mexican show centers on drug lord Alonso Marroquin, who must fight for his survival against a police unit that has been transformed into enhanced zombies with special abilities, due to the US military’s experience with mini pigs.

A modern take on the 1997 horror film and based on the original 1973 novel by Lois Duncan, I Know What You Did Last Summer follows a group of teenagers being hunted down by a mysterious killer. The panel will feature showrunner Sara Goodman.
