Witcher fans, meet Scían! Netflix unveiled an official teaser for The Witcher: Blood Origin today, featuring Michelle Yeoh as the sword-elf. Check it out below:
Blood Origin is set in the elven world 1200 years before the events of The Witcher. It tells the story of the “conjunction of the spheres” – aka when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged. This leads to the creation of the first Witcher.
Yeoh’s Scían is the last of her nomadic tribe. No one can comes close to her artistry with the blade, and no one carries as much loss within their heart. When a chance presents itself to retrieve a stolen sacred sword, taken from her fallen tribe by nefarious means, she launches herself into a deadly quest that will change the outcome of the Continent.
In addition to Yeoh, the limited series also stars Minnie Driver (Seanchaí), Laurence O’Fuarain (Fjall), Sophia Brown (Éile), Mirren Mack (Merwyn), Lenny Henry (Balor), Jacob Collins Levy (Eredin), Lizzie Annis (Zacaré), Huw Novelli (Callan “Brother Death”), Francesca Mills (Meldof), Amy Murray (Fenrik), Nathaniel Curtis (Brían), Zach Wyatt (Syndril), Dylan Moran (Uthrok One-Nut), and Joey Batey (Jaskier).
Blood Origin is a prequel series to Netflix’s The Witcher, based on the novels behind the popular video game franchise of the same name.
The Witcher: Blood Origin arrives on Netflix December 25.
