The Kingkiller Chronicles is a book trilogy that follows Kvothe, a young wizard who recounts his early years in University and traveling the world that led to his claim to fame.
The Kingkiller Chronicle now consists of two books, The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear, with a third book planned but not yet published. While the film will adapt Name of the Wind directly, the television series will take place one generation before the book. His last directing credit was Oz: The Great and the Powerful in 2013.

The story of The Kingkiller Chronicle is told by Kvothe, an adventurer and musician.
