The Witcher: Blood Origin Trailer Talk
Netflix has described The Witcher: Blood Origin as an “untold chapter” set before the original Witcher series. On the official webpage of the series, Netflix says that it is set 1200 years before Geralt of Rivia’s story in an elven world.
The exact synopsis given on its Netflix page says, “In an elven world, 1200 years before Geralt of Rivia, the worlds of monsters, men and elves merge to become one-and the very first Witcher arises.”
The show predates the Witcher and tells how “worlds of monsters, men and elves merge to become one” likely to refer to the Conjunction of the Spheres. According to the streaming giant, the show is set at a time when the Continent is about to see the creation of the first Witcher.
The cast of the upcoming series is led by Sophia Brown, who plays Haji, an elite warrior. She is joined by Michelle Yeoh playing Scian, a sword elf. Laurence O’Fuarain stars as the warrior Fjall.
Netflix is building a universe around the Witcher franchise and it has already rolled out 2 seasons of the main show. One animated movie The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf was also released on Netflix this year. At present The Witcher: Blood Origin doesn’t have an exact release date, but it will arrive in 2022 as per the trailer shared by Netflix.
