The series “The Witcher” from Netflix, based on the prose of Andrzej Sapkowski, has an equal group of fans and critics. Interestingly, even people who do not watch the series are interested in it and continuously follow any new information related to it. Some of them just to see “what the creators of the series have spoiled this time.” After all, there were claims right from the start that, despite the declaration of fidelity to the books, the Netflix title has nothing to do with the original.
Nevertheless, it does not change the fact that the series “The Witcher” invariably evokes great emotions, and Netflix has recently delivered more. The premiere date of the 3rd season of “The Witcher” was announced and its first trailer was released. In addition, a new poster has also appeared among the materials in connection with the new episodes. Instead of euphoria, however, these materials made fans laugh and shame themselves. Why?
It’s not the first time costumes from the series “The Witcher” were criticized by the audience, after all, everyone probably associates the armor of the Nilfgard knights that look like they were made of garbage bags, not to mention Henry Cavill’s wig. It turns out that instead of “improving” in the following episodes, the creators of the production also failed in the third season of “The Witcher”, which can be seen in the trailer for the new season.
Yennefer’s outfit met with the greatest criticism in the fight scene when he uses a spell to knock down enemies. The sorceress famous for her elegance, femininity and attention to quality (at least in the books) wears a simple black skirt and a patterned blouse. Importantly, the recipients’ embarrassment was not even caused, not by the fact that the stylization did not resonate with Yennefer’s character, but because does not match the production at all.
That’s because we’re talking about a fantastic production that takes place in a medieval atmosphere, and as fans note, sorceress clothes look like bought in our time and reality in one of the network points. Therefore, even mocking remakes have appeared on the web, and you can find one of them below.
Individual observers also wonder why Yennefer always wears a mask on her face? This was never the case in the source materials, and while the mask in the character’s introduction gave her a mysterious character, wearing it seems pointless in the long run. In the season 3 trailer, we see the sorceress again with a distinctive mask.
On the occasion of the latest materials, there were naturally again voices of regret over the departure of Henry Cavill from the cast, for whom the third season of “The Witcher” will be the last. Another issue related to the trailer itself is the look of the wild hunt visible on it. Some people accuse the production of being modeled after The Lord of the Rings, due to the similarity between Ciri’s dangerous pursuers and the Nazgûl, known from Tolkien’s novels.
In this case, the creators of the series “The Witcher” from the Netflix platform must be given justice, due to they do not differ in the trailer from the image presented by CD Projekt in game. However, this was not criticized. In addition, the descriptions in the novels also paint a related picture, indicating, among other things, black colors, demonic appearance, and motifs of skulls and bones on both riders and horses. The decisive proof of the inadequacy of the reservations is that I the author himself invented neither the Wild Hunt nor its image. It is a mythological element, and the wild hunt was known in ancient belief in almost all of Europe.
Criticizing something for the sake of fact makes no sense, especially then, unfortunately the creators of the series “The Witcher” themselves give reasons for real reservations. As the fans point out after getting acquainted with the materials of the 3rd season of “The Witcher”, the new episodes will probably not lack this.
