Prime Video released their main trailer for their upcoming television series Wheel of Time based on Robert Jordan’s best-selling books.

Take a look.

According to a press release from Amazon Studios, the trailer uses YouTube’s 360 player and spatial audio surround sound. This allows viewers to watch “the traditional 2-D trailer in a virtual three-dimensional ‘wheel.'”

They further elaborate, “When fans arrive at the YouTube page to watch the trailer, a quick scan to the left or right will reveal there is much more to experience.”

“To the left of the screen, they’ll discover Moiraine’s (Rosamund Pike) powerful “One Power” channeling—featuring her voice and faces, artifacts, and symbols hidden amongst the energy weaves. On the right, the corruption of the Dark One represents a dissention into madness,” Amazon continued.

They also note, “The trailer also features spatial audio that gives fans a more immersive experience as objects appear from either side of the “wheel.” The result is a unique utilization of existing technology that creates a trailer experience unlike any other—one that offers multiple viewing experiences for fans of the series.”
