‘The Witcher’ Producer Says The Story Of Henry Cavill’s Geralt Is Close To The Books

The Witcher executive producer says the story of Henry Cavill’s Geralt will be pretty faithful to the source material in the upcoming Netflix series.

The Witcher has already been adapted in several ways already, from the popular video games to a Polish TV series. Henry Cavill is now set to bring Geralt to life in the upcoming Netflix series, which is now less than a month away. So far, it appears the people behind Netflix’s The Witcher, including Henry Cavill, sound like they are well-versed in the source material.

While speaking with Comicbook.com, The Witcher executive producer Tomek Baginski admitted that Henry Cavill’s Geralt will not be too different from what is seen in books:

“To be honest, with Geralt one of the things we realized is that we didn’t have to adapt that much because in terms of the Geralt story, we are following the short stories quite close. He’s already pretty mature and his discovery that maybe he actually needs other people in his life, it’s something which is not that different from the books. It’s actually very, very close. So we didn’t have to change much for that. It’s the same character arc, or maybe lack of character arc because he’s Geralt, right. He’s this character all the time, which is in the original story.”

Here is the official synopsis for Henry Cavill’s The Witcher:

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.

 The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson as Eist, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Aretuza, and Millie Brady as Princess Renfri, with Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read as novice sorcerers.

The Witcher will be available on Netflix on December 20, 2019.
