You can see the complete two-minute trailer under, which provides our very first and ideal appear at the globe of The Witcher, as envisioned by former Daredevil writer Lauren Hissrich. It undoubtedly evokes that other well-liked fantasy Television show, Game of Thrones – but most fans would argue that the purpose each that show and The Witcher are well-liked is simply because they handle to build a believable fantasy globe.
The trailer introduces us to the titular Witcher himself, Geralt of Rivia, as played by Superman and Mission: Not possible actor Henry Cavill. You can see him do a lot of swordfighting, do an Aard sign, get a glimpse of his cat eyes – yellow, but not slits – and even watch him stare down a giant swamp monster. And yes – he does get his shirt off.

Ciri also goes by means of a transformation in the show apparently, as her look in The Witcher three: Wild Hunt – as a monster hunter with magic powers – comes extended just after the events of Andrzej Sapkowski’s books, which the Netflix show is additional straight primarily based on. Allan’s Ciri is younger, sheltered and additional naive, and experiences genuine horror for the very first time as she’s forced to flee the encroaching armies of the Nilfgaard Empire.
Sadly, the 1 point the panel and trailer did not reveal was precisely when The Witcher TV series will release on Netflix. We know it’ll be later this year, but hopefully it will not be also late – as it is genuinely hunting rather great.
