The official trailer for Netflix’s upcoming fantasy drama series The Witcher has been released, and its lead star Henry Cavill shows is a brooding hero with impressive swordplay.
Created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich for Netflix, it is based on the book series of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski and follows the story of Geralt (Cavill), a solitary monster hunter trying to fit into a world where people are often crueler than beasts.
When destiny throws him in the path of a powerful sorceress and a young princess, Geralt must combines forces with them to navigate and survive the Continent.
The trailer displays the usual elements in a fantasy tale; a sword-wielding protagonist, sorcery, and treacherous landscapes. Cavill appears to fit in well with his character but it may be too early to say for sure until the series arrives on the 20th of December, 2019.
