Eight days away from its premiere, Netflix has unveiled the final trailer for its highly anticipated adaptation of The Witcher.
The latest look reveals the central conflict: the most powerful empire in the world, Nilfgaard, is wreaking havoc on the land of Cintra, and there’s only one person qualified to protect it and its young princess, Cirilla.
“I will take the girl, protect her and bring her back from harm,” monster hunter Geralt of Rivia says in the spot, which is packed with onrushing armies, deep-rooted politics and intertwined destinies as humans, elves, witchers, gnomes and monsters battle to preserve their empire.
The only thing missing? A game of Gwent.
Netflix also used this last week to introduce its three leading characters: Henry Cavill as monster hunter Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Cirilla, and Anya Chalotra as the sorceress Yennefer.
