Netflix officially unveiled the first full and official trailer for its upcoming adaptation of The Witcher, and the internet had a lot of thoughts.
Aside from the awesome fight scenes, intricate story and dazzlingly bleak setting we were all treated to in the video, we also got to see something a little extra-special: Geralt taking a bath.
For longstanding fans of the series, the Geralt-in-the-bath scene is hugely important, not just to people who love a lil bit o’ nudity, but also to meme culture, The Witcher culture, and to that Dark Horse statue that was made to recognise the moment.
People weren’t too hopeful about the Netflix show including the scene, since the streaming service has been pretty clear about following the books and not the games. However, gamers were left seriously impressed after the iconic scene was spotted in the trailer.
And of course, Twitter lost its damn mind. You can see just a few of the thirsty AF tweets below. (Tbf, they are all 100% correct).
Interestingly, the scene has raised one question in particular: if Netflix has based the series on the books, why bother with the fan service for players of the CD Projekt Red games?
Well, there’s an answer to that, and surprisingly (not) you’ll only know it if you’ve read the books…
Bath tubs and nudity aside, the show is looking even more impressive than the previous teaser suggested, with naysayers of the show now admitting that it looks seriously cool.
Netflix has stated of the show: “You can’t outrun destiny just because you’re terrified of it. Henry Cavill is Geralt of Rivia. The Witcher arrives December 20.
“The witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.”
