    As someone said, looks like they'll be delving more into Yennefer's backstory, which will be interesting, seeing her after her transformation, she obviously looks and feels far more like the bitch Yenn we know.

    Quoi?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,996 ✭✭✭ TheValeyard


    Yeah I wasnt a fan of Yenn either. Take Triss anyway over Yenn.

    Fcuk Putin. Glory to Ukraine!

    She's a bit of a cow in the books.

    She's a bit of a cow in the books.

    She's a raving ****e, especially to Geralt. A lot of people always questioned why he wouldn't choose Triss instead, seeing as she actually show's him respect, and not just when it suits her.

    Looks good. Hope it doesn't become too popular. Can't imagine talking about Witcher at the water cooler in work.

    Ok, that trailer is awesome. It has me hyped. But I wasn't aware of the 'race-swapped' (as some media outlets are putting it) Triss (and Yennifer to some extent). I much preferred Triss in the game (haven't read the books) so I am disappointed to not be seeing a white red-haired Triss. I searched but can't find any reason as to why they did it, aside from some article about anti-trump remarks from the writers so they're taking liberties. That is the only issue I have so far, so I'm still excited to see it.

    Whoa had to look up the Triss actress as i didn't know she was even in that trailer.

    Any chance we get this in 2019?

    The needed to change some ethnicities to try avoid internet outrage. As for why Triss, there's a weird coincidence that the redheads seem to be the ones that get changed. Heimdall (MCU), Wally West (Flash TV series), Jimmy Olsen (Supergirl TV series), Starfire (Titans), Ariel (Little Mermaid live action).

    As a red-head, I have to say, meh. Disappointing really, but let's see how it goes. It'll all be down to the writing now to see if Netflix Triss can live up to game Triss (and once I've read the books, book Triss!).

    I'm two thirds through the 4th book of the main saga now and Triss barely features in them, this is Geralt, Yen and and Ciri's story, though more Geralt and Ciri as Yen is in them very little too tbh. I haven't read the short stories yet but going by that trailer they're using them to flesh things out a fair bit.

    They're not great books btw, likely wouldn't have made it through the 2nd one if I wasn't already invested in the characters from the games.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,683 ✭✭✭✭ Potential-Monke


    And they're right to focus on Geraly/Ciri, as they really are the main characters and going by the games Yen fecks off most the time and leaves Geralt to do what he does. Triss wasn't much better tbh, but still going to miss that red hair, she was a splash of colour in Geralt's world!


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,166 ✭✭✭ Sonics2k


    I swear to the gods though, if Mark Hamill isn't cast as Vesemir I'm going to start burning places down.

    Looks to me like they dyed the actress' hair reddish though. In terms of features and facial structure I think the actress really looks like Triss. If they gave her green eyes and dyed her hair even more she'd be textbook.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,307 ✭✭✭ The Phantom Pain


    She's a bit of a cow in the books.

    I got the impression that she was extremely loyal to Geralt and saved his life a few times? :confused:

    Bog standard current day PC fantasy ****e

    Humans = Dem evil wi peepo
    Elves = Wise opressed soul sistahs ( + token brutha)

    Pussy possie running the plot, default American olde medieval accent setting of posh English in a Polish world. Dopey reverse sword grip cos you franchise merchandise buying tits think its badass.

    I'm not saying you're a clown if you think that trailer is good but I do think of you as one.

    I just knew you'd be along to post some nonsense like that.

    What's up? Yenn was too light skinned to actively annoy you?

    I'm too busy looking at her Jimmy Hill chin and Henry Cavills weird Dolph Ludgren Torso to worry about her skin.:)

    The casting other than Cavill is pretty atrocious but that's typical of Netflix. Won't be getting a sub from me. I've been enjoying the 1st game again.

    How do you know the casting is atrocious? Nobody has seen it yet, outside a trailer?

    Go on, outside of skin colour, back up your comment.
