The “main trailer” has arrived for The Witcher, Netflix‘s big series adaptation of the fantasy novels and short stories by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.
As someone who hasn’t ready the books but has played the popular video game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, I can say that this looks like it’s being pretty loyal to the latter. That being said, I’m not all that well versed in Witcher lore to really know how reverent it’s being to source material, but it does look good. It’s a better trailer than that first one, showing off a sprawling production with impressive visuals and what looks like the right type of role for Cavill.
Fingers crossed we get a special Netflix series here. The Witcher, also starring Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, Jodhi May, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, Adam Levy, MyAnna Buring, and Mimi Ndiweni, will hit the streaming service on December 20.
Oh, and just in case you’re the kind that wants a warning before hand, there’s a bit of an out-of-focus orgy in the trailer.
Official synopsis for The Witcher:
Based on the best-selling fantasy series, 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.
