Netflix's The Witcher series receives its Main Trailer and a release date

Netflix has confirmed that its 8-part "The Witcher" series will release on December 20th as part of the series' latest trailer, giving fans of the series enough time to plan their inevitable binging sessions. 

The Witcher will star Henry Cavil as Geralt of Rivia, the series' protagonist and will be based on The Witcher book series of the same name. This means that the series will not follow any of the events of CD Projekt Red's game series, which is arguably more famous than the novels at the time of writing.

The first four episodes of the series will be directed from Alik Sakharov, who directed House of Cards, while the remaining four episodes are split between Garcia Lopez and Charlotte Brandstrom.
 
Below is Netflix' official description of the series; 
 

     Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

I don't dig it. It seems a bit too westernized. The thing about video games is that they are made by people from Poland so they managed to capture that Slavic atmosphere from the books rather well. There's none of that in the trailers, and in my opinion there should be. Atmosphere is a pretty important aspect that differentiates The Witcher from western fantasies such as LoTR or GoT.Quote

I stopped bothering about that stuff. It is Americans making content for Americans so i don't have any expectations. I have experienced The Witcher series the proper way through books and games. I will watch the series but from a different angle. Those who experience The Witcher through the series for the first time will probably miss the whole point but people like different things.

What i hate the most are remakes of TV series and movies. Like The Ring, Broadchurch, Bron/Broen, and countless others.

Now when i stumble on, or get recommended some series, or movie i first research if it is original or a remake. If it is then I always watch the original. Also if it is based on a book I will always read it. Usually before I watch it.Quote

I was trying to be nice about it. The truth is, I think it looks cheap. Production value is simply not there. Look at The Mandalorian. You can tell from the trailer that the production value is excellent and that A LOT of money went into it. But The Witcher looks like just another in a long line of low budget fantasy/sci-fi shows aimed at teenagers. One of those shows that doesn't go past two seasons. I could be wrong, and I hope that I am, but that's the vibe that I got from this trailer.Quote

The author and creator of the books is working alongside the production team. I wouldn't blame Americans or Westerners. There's an opportunity to make money, Netflix was the first to get rights for it and they started to do something with it. In April of last year they got Sapkowski to join them.

My only problem without having looked at the main trailer yet is the acting cast and political BS they are introducing. That's where I would lay blame to the West.Quote
