The great war is about to begin, but all that matters is one girl.

The final trailer has arrived for Netflix’s The Witcher, bringing Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) and Yennefer the sorceress (Anya Chalotra) into the fray as they battle monsters and humans alike to protect a young woman who might be the key to saving or destroying them all.

The latest and final trailer focuses on a massive war being waged by Nilfgaard, a large and thriving country that built a global empire throughout the world of The Witcher by invading and taking over foreign countries, establishing them as provinces of the great Nilfgaardian Empire.

As the North struggles to fight back, there’s also the matter of protecting Ciri (Freya Allan), a princess with strange abilities that could change the course of the world. It’s up to Geralt and Yennefer to protect her from Nilfgaard and any other foes that could threaten her safety—but first they’ve got to find out where she’s gone. Through all that, one thing is clear: Don’t touch Roach.

They lean hard on Ciri’s supposed destiny in this. This may backfire if they follow with books ending since the point is nothing comes of it and the whole story is about her escaping all those trying to force it on her with some help of her new parents.

Still, the interactions of Geralt and Jaskier look really fun. I wish the trailer showed the same for Geralt and Ciri and Yennefer. They concentrate so much on them alone but the real heart of these stories comes out when these characters are together.
