Netflix’s The Witcher has been filming for over a month now and so far we didn’t get the chance to have a good look at the scenes being filmed. That changes today, as we have something very interesting to show you that involves none other than Ciri.
Redanian Intelligence has exclusively obtained pictures from the Witcher filming that took place on October 1, 2020 not too far from the series’ headquarters at Arborfield Studios. Photo credit goes to Burst Photos.
Here we have our first look at Ciri‘s costume in The Witcher Season 2. This new costume is likely her witcheress outfit, which will be given to her during her training in Kaer Morhen.
Next to Ciri, we see two more women: one tall and ash-blonde, very likely a famous elf, and the other a redhead. We have not identified who the women are with certainty, but our sources told us that the legendary elven sorceress and Ciri’s ancestor Lara Dorren would appear in the second season, so there is a strong possibility the tall, blonde, elven-like woman is actually her and we are witnessing a flashback/vision scene. In another image (available in the gallery below), the woman who may be Lara Dorren can be seen wearing the show’s pointed elven ears.
As for the identity of the second woman, we really can’t say. Our best guess would be Cerro, the Redanian queen who adopted Lara Dorren’s daughter Riannon. But this is just a guess and we could be wrong.
One other notable thing in the pictures is the tree. It has been burnt and split in two, or perhaps struck by lightning. This could have been caused by Ciri’s powers.
Take a look at the full gallery below:
UPDATE: Here’s another photo from Surrey Live who spoke to a local woman that took it. She told them that “there was this big artificial tree with lots of lights going down it.” That could confirm our earlier theory about the tree being struck by lightning.
With these photos, we are excited to see what the scene is really about and even more excited to try getting more photos from the sets of The Witcher.
