The Witcher: The Netflix series will arrive sooner than expected

Announced for 2020, the TV series The Witcher of the US platform Netflix will be unexpectedly released next year.

While British comedian Henry Cavill (The Tudors, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, Justice League) was recently announced as the future performer of Geralt de Riv , also dubbed Gwynbleidd or White Wolf, in the TV show  The Witcher ‘s Netflix, screenwriter and showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich also made some ads on social networks.

Thus, to everyone’s surprise, the broadcast year has passed from 2020 to 2019, knowing that the eight episodes will focus mainly on the relationships between the characters of the universe The Witcher novels of the Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski that the watches: ” The Geralt Sorcerer, a mutant monster hunter, is struggling to find his place in a world where people often turn out to be more vicious than beasts. 

Ciri should lose his pallor and his Caucasian appearance

The National Youth Theater suggests that Netflix is currently seeking an actress “black, Asian, ethnic minority aged 15 to 16” who can play a role of a character 13/14 years. This offer concerns the role of young Ciri. A description of the character and his background is particularly present:

Ciri could often be found fighting with the servants of the palace instead of sitting on the lap of Queen Calanthe, his grandmother. In other words, until Cintra is slaughtered by the Nilfgaardians and Ciri becomes an orphan, left alone through the contain. She does not know it yet, but she is a direct descendant of Lara Dorren, an elven mage. That’s why everyone in our series is after her. We follow Ciri as she escapes her captors and at the same time discovers her magical talents, her dark side and the role she must play in the next apocalypse. We are looking for an extraordinary young talent to lead this series. She will have to be brave and have something really special at home. 

The future Witcher should therefore not be “white” as in the work of Andrzej Sapkowski and Projekt RED CD games. The hardcore fans of the license are already dissatisfied with this choice.
