The Witcher has received its first official trailer from Netflix today showing us a look at what to expect from this upcoming fantasy series produced by Netflix.

The official tagline used in the description for the trailer is “The worst monsters are the ones we create,” which implies at the theme of the TV series. The trailer offers a look at some action, drama, and shows off the fantasy elements. The Witcher appears to follow a theme that seems similar to Game of Thrones in execution and style.
There was no release date shared for the trailer but it did give us a glimpse at the story elements. Geralt, who is played by Henry Cavil takes the center stage of the trailer with Yennefer and Ciri also getting a full reveal.
The trailer ended with a tease of a giant monster fight confirming that there will be some crazy looking creatures in the TV series, which is also the case with the video game. Netflix doesn’t seem to have spared any expenses in the special effects and budget for the TV series.
