'The Witcher' Is Coming Next Week And People Say It's Better Than 'Game Of Thrones'

'The Witcher' Is Coming Next Week And People Say It's Better Than 'Game Of Thrones'

The final trailer for Netflix's series The Witcher has been released - and it most definitely has been added to our must-watch list.

The latest teaser for the drama, which has been touted as the next big fantasy epic, follows 'The Witcher' Geralt of Rivia, who is "a mutated monster hunter, who struggles to find his place in a world in which people often prove more wicked than beasts."

Setting up the storyline, the trailer, which is filled with magic, swords and rather ominous landscapes, begins with Queen Calanthe telling her court: "Cirilla, you are the lion cub of Cintra."

However, viewers are immediately made aware of the danger Cirilla faces as Geralt (Henry Cavill) warns: "I saw an army a sea of black and gold" as the Emhyr var Emreis, Emperor of Nilfgaard, exclaims "bring me the girl alive" in a subsequent scene.

Cementing his stance as The Witcher, Cavill's character insists he will "take the girl, protect her and bring her back unharmed" as he is warned that "the world depends on it" - no tall order there.

The eight-part adaptation of Andrzej Sapkowski's bestselling series of novels and short stories also tells the stories of Princess Ciri and Yennefer of Vengerberg, demonstrating how destiny brings these three characters together.

Although the series doesn't hit the streaming service until next week, critics and fans have already drawn comparisons to GoT, with many reviewers saying Game of Thrones doesn't measure up to The Witcher.

"The Witcher Netflix series is gonna be better than Game of Thrones," one wrote. "If Netflix adapts The Witcher correctly, it would be even better than game of thrones."

Another penned: "The games take place after the books. The story is even better than GoT tbh. A lot of Slavic folklore fused with politics, conflict, and really good characters. The Witcher 3 is arguably the greatest game of all time. You gotta play it."

A fan shared: "Almost anything is better than GoT I don't understand hype about that show it was just over budgeted soap opera, on the other hand The Witcher looks amazing already."
