At the end of the year Netflix launches the long awaited series The Witcher. The novel adaptation will probably not be the only project about the witcher Geralt of Riva.
Most likely, the Witcher series are known by the video games. 2007 appeared the first part, The Witcher for PC and consoles. There are now two sequels on the market, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings in 2011 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from 2015. Just like the planned Netflix series, the games are based on the novels of Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.
The Witcher novels and games are about Geralt of Riva, a witcher who professionally kills monsters and supernatural creatures. In the world in which Geralt lives, humans and mythical creatures live together like dwarfs and elves. However, there are strong tensions between the peoples and even the sorcerers are despised by other people. Lauren Schmidt Hissrich was announced at the end of 2017 as a showrunner of the The Witcher series. Hollywood star Henry Cavill will star in the role of Geralt of Riva. Other members of the cast include Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, Jodhi May and MyAnna Buring.
Now a rumor has surfaced that the Live Action series may not be the only The Witcher project on Netflix. A blog has reported that Netflix is already planning a cartoon about Geralt of Riva. This series was originally scheduled to be released between the first and second season of the Witcher series. Although it is only a rumor, but the same block was synonymous with the actors of the main series right. So there was announced as the first leading actor Henry Cavill.
In a possible spin-off in animated animation, minor characters may be introduced, or a completely different story from the wizarding world told. One thing is for sure: fans of the Witcher series or video games can look forward to a lot of The Witcher from the end of 2019.
