Time for more Witcher related news!
As you know, I’m a pretty big fan of the Witcher franchise. Apart from reading the original books, because I’m a terrible reader (reading makes me sleepy), I’ve immersed myself in everything else. From reading the comics to playing the games, my love for the franchise has only increased over time.
It all began for me because of CD Projekt Red, who gave us such an incredible story-based game to attract us. Without them, I don’t think the Witcher would have been as famous as it is right now. And you know something is popular when it gets its very own show on Netflix itself!
What is the ‘Making The Witcher’ documentary?
In 2019, Netflix released its live-action adaptation based on the Witcher books, staring Henry Cavil as Geralt of Rivia. Many were sceptical at first, especially with Cavil being the protagonist, but the show blew everyone’s expectations off the damn roof! I even found myself loving and enjoying it thoroughly as every episode progressed.
Unfortunately, the first season has only had eight episodes, and it was not enough to quell our hunger. And due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the second season of the show had to be delayed to 2021. 2020, clearly isn’t the year that’s working out for any of us.
Thankfully, we’ll have something to enjoy in the meantime. Netflix has just released the ‘Making The Witcher’ documentary for viewers to enjoy learning more about the things that went on behind the scenes. Frankly, documentaries tend to bore me, but I couldn’t have selected the video any faster when it first appeared on my watch list!
If you’re a fan of the show, I’d suggest you take the time to watch it. It’s quite fascinating to learn more about the actors’ experiences, the director’s choice of storytelling and the efforts of the production crew during the show. It’s safe to know that the future of the Witcher series lies with people so dedicated to the source material who are willing to go the extra mile to give the fans what they want.
