Christmas is just around the corner and for many that means exchanging gifts and sharing a meal with family, or at least a day off from work. The day also marks the release of Netflix The Witcher: Origin of the Blood, a miniseries that serves as a prequel to the main line witcher Series on Netflix starring Henry Cavill in the title role (for now).
Initially we were convinced of the idea that the series will depict the creation of the first witcher and give a deeper insight into the ancient elven civilization in Andrzej Sapowski’s world (origin of the blood takes place 1200 years before the events of the witcher). As intriguing as this plot and setting is for fans of the original series, what really won us over is Netflix sharing a lavish clip of series star Michelle Yeoh wielding some steel:
The clip features Scian (Michelle Yeoh), Éile (Sophia Brown) and Fjall (Laurence O’Fuarian) skirmishing at a campsite in the middle of a barren plain, with Yeoh’s character far outstripping her peers. She caps off the impressive action sequence by giving her attackers words of encouragement on how to better function as a unit.
It’s a very well choreographed fight scene and if we can expect more of it The Witcher: Blood Origins Count us in four episodes. What we haven’t convinced yet is Liam Hemsworth taking over Henry Cavill’s mantle as Geralt of Rivia for season four of The Witcher, this transformation still hurts us to the core.
Definitely, The Witcher: Origin of the Blood Coming to Netflix on December 25, 2022.
