Henry Cavill, star of the upcoming Netflix adaptation of The Witcher, has taken to Instagram to give the world its first look at Roach, Geralt of Rivia’s trusty steed.
He captioned the shot writing: “The road to San Diego is long. The good news is, on her worst day, Roach beats the company of Men, Elves, Gnomes and even Dwarves.
“She’s not always easy, but she knows more than most and cares just enough to be the only kind of company worth enjoying.”
Needless to say, the new image has gotten fans of the series even more hyped than before, though it’s clear that the show will take more inspiration from the original The Witcher books as opposed to the CD Projekt Red games.
Although we’ve yet to see a trailer from Netflix, the images that have been released so far are seriously impressing fans, leading to a tentative hope that the television adaptation of the beloved books and games actually might not suck.
Personally, I don’t think the show will suck, and if you want to know why then click right here.
The upcoming show’s official premise reads: “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.”
The show will star Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer and Freya Allan as Ciri.
Although there’s no concrete release date for Netflix’s The Witcher series, the company has confirmed it’ll be releasing in Q4, giving it a window of anywhere from October 2019.
