Well it’s official, we are getting a Witcher series on Netflix and finally we’ve got some more footage of it!
I’m new to the franchise, having only started playing the games by CD Projekt Red (over 80 hours in the third game!) last fall, and after several months, I am absolutely loving it.
Without any further ado, here’s our teaser:
When the casting was first announced, I’ve had mixed feelings about Henry Cavill playing Geralt. I thought he looked too plain to play the role and something similar to Superman was better suited for him. But, after learning from fellow bloggers and doing some research, I’ve discovered that Henry is actually a big Witcher fan who loves the games, especially the third and enjoys reading the books too. Imagine being a massive fan of a series and then suddenly you get offered to play the lead role in, must be a dream come true for him.
In this trailer we also catch glimpse of Yennefer a few times. I learned that she was born deformed so as soon as I saw the girl with some disfigurement, I knew it was her from reading all those wikis. There was that one scene where she’s screams and then emerges later looking beautiful like the way I recognize her.
I also saw what looks like it might be Ciri and at one point she’s in a throne room. I guess that might be in Vizima, her biological father is Emperor Emhyr var Emreis after all. According to the books, Triss has chestnut brown hair rather than red (gee, that reminds me of how Anne Shirley tells Marilla how much she hates her red hair and wishes it was brown instead) so I caught glimpse of what should be her as well.
Finally, I was treated with some scenes of what looked like Nilfgaardian soldiers and Geralt about to face a monster that looked like an endrega to me.
Apparently, this series is going to mainly be based off of the books. I haven’t read the books yet, but trust me, it’s on my to-do list!
Well, in the meantime, I will continue playing The Witcher 3, I just started the Hearts of Stone DLC and it was fun doing the wedding quest where Geralt got possessed and after that ghost finally had to be sent back to his grave, I did Shani’s romance which was so sweet and hot. Though Yen is my main squeeze for this play-through, I’ve allowed my Geralt to fool around a bit!
