All of you who are already looking forward to the series premiere will be happy to hear the news released today. Unfortunately, the release date is still the enigmatic 2019, but there is one big surprise.
It’s been two years since we first heard about the Netflix idea, but it’s only now that a series based on the works of Andrzej Sapkowski is starting to take more real shape. Today we got, for example, the official poster, as well as the looks of the three main characters – the witcher Geralt of Rivia, the sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg and the famous surprise child Ciri. And while the producers stipulate that they modeled the game after the books, they didn’t get away from the world-famous game series.
Especially in the case of the white-haired Witcher (played by Superman, i.e. Henry Cavill), whose armor is almost identical to the one from the third part of the game, i.e. Wild Game, which of course is not a drawback, because it was thanks to CD Projekt RED’s production that the whole world heard about the saga and fell in love with it. The character of Ciri (Freya Allan) is not likely to arouse any controversy either, as she fits in well with the Witcher universe, which, unfortunately, cannot be said about Geralt’s beloved, as Yennefer’s photo reveals that Netflix has chosen a very young actress with a breakfast complexion, which has already stirred up a lot of controversy among fans of the series – well, Anya Cholatra has nothing else to do but shut everyone’s mouth with her outstanding acting.
On the official poster we can also see a sentence that seems to set the tone for the whole series, namely “The worst monsters are those we create ourselves”. – So isn’t the fight with ghouls and other nasties the core of the production? It seems so, as the new production description also indicates: – Based on the best-selling series of novels, The Witcher series is a story about destiny and family. Geralt of Rivia, a lone monster hunter, tries to find his place in a world where people often turn out to be worse than the scariest monsters. On his way he meets a powerful sorceress and a young princess hiding a dangerous secret. Now the three of them have to find themselves among the dangers lurking on the Continent.
As we mentioned, the series will premiere this year, but unfortunately Netflix doesn’t want to share the exact date yet – according to unofficial reports it will be December. And much earlier, because later this month, we can count on the first trailer, which will be presented during San Diego Comic-Con, July 19 to be exact. What do you think about it? Do you like the images of the characters, or maybe you’re still not convinced?
