Netflix’s The Witcher Comic-Con Teaser Released

2 comments

The Witcher is Netflix’s next big gamble, with a budget higher than usual and rumors of a long-term commitment (three seasons in advance, according to Geeks WorldWide’s KC Walsh). During the fantasy series’ much anticipated Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con, the first trailer was released.

Attending the panel was creator and showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich and leads Henry Cavill, Anya Chalotra, and Freya Allan.

The Witcher releases in December 2019 on Netflix and stars Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Chalotra as Yennefer of Vengerberg, and Allan as Ciri.

The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

  1. So much more than anyone expected! Well done to the cast and crew, and to Netflix. Wow!

  2. I am not confident with this trailer but I can tell why. My opinion is based on what I noticed in the books in original language and not in game (which is great btw)
    1. The overall climate is quite good if you forget that this film is based on the books “The Witcher”.
    2. This trailer and the title suggest of the series that they put far more effort for the female character – Yen than it is present in the books (political correctness IMHO).
    3. A few visual characters are completely off. Yennefer (looks innocently and shiftless) and Triss (looks too kindly) for instance.
    4. Driads used bows instead of spears and were more like “snipers” with partial ghillie outfits.
    5. The biggest flaw IMO is the design of the props and costumes in this film at all. This is such Hollywoodish approach to armors (Nilfgaard and Geralt leather jacket – this is not even armor full of sequins LOL) swords (once more Nilfgaard and witchers one) driads heavy spears etc.
    The props are not believable and not come from real life in any part. THis looks like someone thought that he/she knows how such things looked/worked but hasnt done her homework. Thats why I called them hollywoodish.
    Sorry for my English
