The second part of “The Witcher“is already on Netflix, and if it’s like the first season, it will include a lot of violence, sex, and Henry Cavill muttering the f-word under his breath. Based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy books. , it’s not exactly the kind of thing you’d immediately think to show kids.
But Netflix is still determined to turn “The Witcher” into a hit franchise. It already has an animated prequel film (with another in the works) and is assembling a live-action prequel series. Most surprisingly, it has a Witcher kids program in development.
How exactly is Netflix going to make this terrifying fantasy world suitable for all ages? Showrunner Lauren Hissrich broke it down into IGN:”[I]It doesn’t mean we’re going to take over this universe, and then get rid of all the blood, all the sex, and all the violence and then just give that back to the children,” she said. ” The most compelling thing about ‘The Witcher’, aside from the fact it’s a family, is all the moral themes that Sapkowski has in it. For example, his short stories are fairy tales. Fairy tales are also written for children. There is a way to adapt these themes and these stories, with different characters, of course, laying the groundwork for the ‘Witcher’ world. “
We also won’t shy away from some of its more controversial parts. We talked a lot about how the Trail of the Grasss would be in this, because we needed it. Without the Trial of the Grasss, it wouldn’t be ‘The Witcher. ‘So those are conversations we’re constantly having, but I know there’s a way to do it.
What is the trial of the blades of grass in “The Witcher”?
The trial of the blades of grass is the cruel test young witches must go through before they can officially begin their careers. They are injected with mutagenic poisons to enhance their strength, speed, and senses. . . if they survive. Did there are many people.
Again, it’s hard to see how Netflix takes something nasty and makes it delicious. But I will refuse to judge until the Witcher’s budding Cinematic Universe is closer to full bloom.
