On Thursday, Netflix’s The Witcher saw the reveal of its final trailer in a tweet; and fans saw star Henry Cavill in the most important scene of the show – in the tub! The show, based primarily on a series of books of the same name, Andrzej Sapkowski, is hotly anticipated, especially by fans of the critically-acclaimed games.
The series combines swords and sorcery as it follows Geralt of Rivia (Cavill), a monster hunting Witcher who finds himself intertwined with machinations larger than he ever hoped to encounter. In this new trailer, we get a closer look at Cavill’s action scenes and, although he doesn’t reload his arms, what’s there is extremely well done.
As far s story goes, producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich is explicitly keeping things under wraps. She’s mentioned previously that the story here is verging in an entirely different direction than the games. That said, this final Witcher trailer does give sharp eyes a few leads. We see Freya Allen as princess Ciri, who plays a major role in The Wild Hunt as well as Anya Chalotra as the sorceress/love interest, Yennefer.
That’s not all this final trailer reveals! The Witcher will be available to stream on December 20, so make your oils and brew your potions.
