The video, which you can see at the top of the article, offers the first real glimpse of both the story and the characters. Here we get to see a young and well-groomed version of protagonist Vesemir – best known as the mentor of Geralt by Rivia.

The plot is set long before Geralt’s time, and it is Vesemir who takes on the role of rude Witcher, or volver in Norwegian. Based on the film’s official description, Vesemir begins as a classic anti-hero who only cares about money, until one day he gets a new challenge to work on.
– Before Geralt, it was his mentor Vesemir – a snazzy young wolf who escaped a life of poverty to kill monsters for money. But when a mysterious new monster begins to terrorize a politically unstable kingdom, Vesemir embarks on a terrifying journey that forces him to confront his inner demons.
Vesemir will otherwise appear in the second season of the Netflix series The Witcher, which premieres December 17th. Here Geralt and Ciri travel to Kaer Morhen, the castle where the wolves live.
