“It’s a force but not like the Star Wars Force …”
It’s a term that comes up often in The witcher. A strange and yet essential concept in the mythology of the Netflix series. A kind of invisible force, which governs this Continent imagined by Andrzej Sapkowski. It is she who reunited Geralt and Ciri, in season 2 which begins today. So what is “Destiny” in The witcher ?
“It’s a force but not like the Star Wars Force … It doesn’t allow you to do magical things. ! “, replies actor Henry Cavill with a joke. The interpreter of Geralt de Riv then tries to explain to Première this most nebulous concept:
“It really is a pure fantasy term. You have to understand that it harbors a form of power, in a sense. In the universe of The witcher, we cannot escape our Destiny. No matter what you do, it will always catch up with you in the end. And if you try to fight it, then it will make you suffer even more. “
