Netflix released a new teaser for The Witcher: Origin of the Bloodthe four-part prequel to The Witcher series.
Set 1,200 years before the adventures of Geralt of Rivia in an elven world, the prequel recounts the creation of the prototype witcher and the events that led to the crucial conjunction of the spheres when the worlds of monster, human and elven merged into one.
This collision created rifts between different realms and brought with it a force known as chaos or magic. The event also drove out many native races that were unable to fight off so many dangerous creatures.
The miniseries will also show how the continent, once ruled by elves and untouched by human colonization, was a “thriving society” full of numerous kingdoms. It was a technologically advanced era in magic and science, but while enlightened, it also had its fair share of problems being a hierarchical society. Residents were either “highborn or lowborn,” and this form of racism and speciesism was rampant.
Blood Origin will follow the story of the elves’ collapse through the eyes of three heroes named Scian, Eile and Fjall, portrayed respectively by Michelle Yeoh, Sophia Brown and Laurence O’Fuarain. In revenge of one kind or another, the story will also cover the perspectives of its enemies.
Minnie Driver will also star in the short series as Seanchai, a shape-shifting storyteller who can travel between worlds and times. Mirren Mack will play Princess Merwyn, and Lenny Henry will play Chief Sage Balor, the king’s right-hand man.
The Witcher: Blood Origin will air December 25 on Netflix.
