Netflix has been keeping information for The Witcher close to their chest since production began. That all changed today when they released the first poster with a few photos of the main characters. It feels like Christmas! Almost. The images show Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), Yennefer of Vengerberg (Anya Chalotra), and Princess Ciri (Freya Allan) looking wistful at beautiful vistas. We also got an epic poster to keep us fans sated.
Since we saw the screen test of Cavill as the Butcher of Blaviken, his wig was, well, wigging people out. However, in the new images it blends a lot better than the screen test. He also appears to have the yellow contacts in and ready. Will they be able to pull off the other-worldly look of the witchers with contacts alone? We’ll have to wait and see. This is also the first time we’re seeing Yennefer and Ciri in full costume. The newcomers look great and ready to take on their important roles.
It was recently announced that The Witcher will be heading to San Diego Comic Con this year so a trailer and release date announcement is likely eminent. Hopefully we’ll be able to see more characters and get a better feel for the world.
So far I remain cautious optimistic. Since I am on the gamer side of things, there will be things from the book that I won’t understand initially. Perhaps Geralt only using one sword in the show versus the two swords he uses in the game is one of those things. Still, the creative team behind the show seems excited to bring the best possible show they can to fans. Plus with network’s doing their best to create the next Game of Thrones, I don’t think Netflix will be skimping on the budget to make this show as epic as possible.
You can check out all the images below and let us know what you think! Are you liking the look of Geralt? Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more news about The Witcher.
