The streaming platform Netflix shared a new trailer for “The Witcher: Blood Origin”, a series that is set hundreds of years before the events of the original series starring Henry Cavill.
It was this weekend during the celebration of the Comic Con Experience 2022 that the streaming giant made the premiere. The video shows the huge environment of the Continent that the elves Scian, Éile and Fjall will have to navigate, played by Michelle Yeoh, Sophia Brown and Laurence O’Furain, respectively.
The three warriors will seek to put an end to the threat posed by the chief Druid Balor, as the viewer will be able to see starting next December 25, when the production featuring Lauren Schmidt and Declan De Barra as showrunners premieres.
“The Witcher: Bood Origin” is set in the elven golden age, 1200 years before the time of Geralt, Yennefer, Ciri and the Conjunction of the Spheres. Seven strangers must unite to fight against an unstoppable empire and the story of how the world’s first wizard was created will be shown.
Though they come from warring clans, Fjall and Éile must trust each other if they are to overthrow the continent’s oppressors. Things get complicated when doors to other worlds open and the enemy unleashes a new weapon, so the Seven realize they must create a monster in order to be victorious.
In this new bet you will be able to see new faces, but there are also familiar names and faces, such as Jaskier (Joey Batey), the troubadour who chases the witch played by Cavill in the first seasons of the series.
In total, there will be four episodes of the Netflix production. “This felt like a two-part movie. I never wanted there to be a moment where we’re just hooking the audience to get one more episode,” showrunner Declan de Barra said.
