Later this month, the new fantasy TV series The Witcher will premiere on Netflix. Adapted from the novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, and starring Henry Cavill, the story follows the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, a mercenary monster-hunter with supernatural abilities.
Given the stories’ darker themes of persecution and prejudice, there will inevitably be comparisons with Game of Thrones. The producers will no doubt be hoping to find a receptive audience looking for a new fantasy fix!
We’ve taken inspiration from Geralt’s world of monsters, sorceresses and political intrigue to create a gallery of moody fantasy imagery. We hope you enjoy the selection!
