Netflix Offers Up First Official Looks at Its ‘The Witcher’ Cast and a New Poster

Netflix has been trickling out new promotions for its The Witcher series today, and among them are official shots of Henry Cavill, Anya Cholatra, and Freya Allan as Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri respectively.

The consensus on Twitter seems to favor Cavill’s Geralt as looking the most authentic, while Cholatra’s Yen is drawing the most criticism. Commenters seem to generally think that she’s too young looking for Yen, and while I don’t disagree, I’m not going to let looks affect how I approach this series. I’ll reserve judgment for the final product, because in the end, if a character is written well and acted well, it won’t matter what they look like.

A new poster was also shared in video form, which you can check out below.

The series is set to debut later this year on Netflix.
