In a promotional video released by Netflix, The Witcher producers Lauren Hissrich and Tomek Baginski commented on Geralt's two swords.
As with books, the Silver Sword is carried by Roach.
“Geralt obviously has his two swords in the series, and the steel one he uses most, always keeping on the back of the armor.”
“He is a monster hunter, but he also has to face threats from humans quite often. We never forget the Silver Sword. It is carried by Roach, as well as in the original work of Andrzej Sapkowski. ”
The Witcher's plot revolves around wizard Geralt (Henry Cavill), a monster hunter who gets rid of huge pests for good money. Mutant, he struggles to find his place in a world in which people often turn out to be crueler than the creatures he faces. The wizard also has a foster daughter, Ciri (Freya Allan), a prominent character in books and games who also acts as a warrior and witch.
Andrzej Sapkowski, author of the original works, will act as a script consultant. Tomasz Bagiński, who directed the introductory videos of the three games in the video game series, will direct at least one episode of the debut season.
The Witcher debuts on Netflix on December 20th.
