According to Gizmodo, the trailer doesn’t reveal much about the plot, but it does show Michelle Yeoh as Scian, one of the story’s protagonists.
The Conjunction of the Spheres, the point in the Witcher universe where humans, elves, and monsters all came to inhabit the series’ fantasy world, will be the focus of Blood Origin.
Following the success of the first season of its live-action adaptation, Netflix has several Witcher-related projects in the works, including Blood Origin.
The company recently announced plans for a third season of the show, as well as a second animated film (following Nightmare of the Wolf) and a kids and family series.
