Yesterday, Netflix launched the trailer for season two of their dwell motion adaptation of The Witcher. And it is enjoyable! You can watch it beneath.
Season two will launch on Netflix on December seventeenth. It’s a part of a rising assortment of Witcher media being producing by Netflix, together with the anime movie The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf launched earlier this yr and an in-development dwell motion prequel collection known as The Witcher: Blood Origin. A season three and “kid-friendly” collection are additionally in improvement.
There’s a lot of portentous nonsense within the above trailer, foretelling of a doomed world, doomed characters, and numerous grave encounters with completely different sorts of monsters. Yet even when The Witcher is being severe, I get the sensation that it does not actually need to be that severe. It’s not simply that there is a joke or two within the trailer, however the wigs and the music and the particular results and the gradual movement and the digicam actions. This is pure Saturday tea-time consolation meals. It’s YA Game Of Thrones. It’s Henry Cavill cosplay theatre. I imply all of these items as compliments.
When I watch the Uncharted film trailer, I really feel that I’m presupposed to be genuinely thrilled and excited, when actually I’m simply occupied with how Spider-Man is dressing up as Nathan Drake for Halloween. The Witcher, in the meantime, is simply low price range sufficient that it appears to be granting permission to deal with it as pleasurable pap. My favorite type of pap.
Anyway, I simply watched all ten execrable Fast & Furious films so actually my vital barometer is wildly skewed proper now. Season two drops, as talked about, on December seventeenth.
