Vesemir is well recognized for being Geralt’s father figure in the game. This film, however, begins before Geralt is even born, following Vesemir’s journey as a Witcher when the enigmatic Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise. It connects directly to the live-action series’ narrative, offering viewers insight into who Vesemir is and his personal past. If we’re lucky, we might even get an appearance from Geralt of Rivia, a.k.a. Henry Cavil.
