'The Witcher' Prequel Announced, Set To Film In The UK

Some huge news on The Witcher front today!

Netflix just revealed a prequel is in the works. The Witcher: Blood Origin will be a six-part, live-action limited series from The Witcher universe:

Set in an elven world 1200 years before the world of The Witcher, Blood Origin will tell a story lost to time - the origin of the very first Witcher, and the events that lead to the pivotal “conjunction of the spheres,” when the worlds of monsters, men, and elves merged to become one. 

Here is the rest of the press release:

Declan de Barra will act as Executive Producer and Showrunner and Lauren Schmidt Hissrich will act as Executive Producer. 

Andrzej Sapkowski will serve as creative consultant on the series. Jason Brown and Sean Daniel from Hivemind, and Tomek Baginski and Jarek Sawko from Platige Films will all serve as executive producers. 

From Declan de Barra: “As a lifelong fan of fantasy, I am beyond excited to tell the story The Witcher: Blood Origin. A question has been burning in my mind ever since I first read The Witcher books - What was the Elven world really like before the cataclysmic arrival of the humans? I've always been fascinated by the rise and fall of civilizations, how science, discovery, and culture flourish right before that fall. How vast swathes of knowledge are lost forever in such a short time, often compounded by colonization and a rewriting of history. Leaving only fragments of a civilization’s true story behind. The Witcher: Blood Origin will tell the tale of the Elven civilization before its fall, and most importantly reveal the forgotten history of the very first Witcher.”

From Lauren Schmidt Hissrich: “I am so thrilled to collaborate with Declan and the Netflix team on The Witcher: Blood Origin. It’s an exciting challenge to explore and expand The Witcher universe created by Andrzej Sapkowski, and we can’t wait to introduce fans to new characters and an original story that will enrich our magical, mythical world even more.” 

From Andrzej Sapkowski: “It is exciting that the world of Witcher - as planned in the very beginning - is expanding. I hope it will bring more fans to the world of my books.” 

The Witcher: Blood Origin will shoot in the UK.

Stay tuned for updates on The Witcher: Blood Origin and Season 2 of The Witcher as we get them!

BTS From No.1 Rosemary Water Promo, More On The Way!

Last summer Henry visited Acciaroli, Italy to film a doc about No1 Rosemary Water. Today we got a few behind-the-scenes pics from those trips and apparently, we're in for more!

Ahhhhhh Acciaroli. One year ago the No.1 team and @henrycavill and his team went down to the mythical village of #acciaroli Italy to take a few snaps and film our story with the Mayor and the villagers. The story of the #centenarians of Acciaroli and their diet which includes plenty of #rosemary and now part of a number of scientific studies into healthy old age is narrated by the wonderful Henry and has now been viewed over 3.5million times. It was a lot of fun making it and is a beautiful piece of cinematography in its own right. It was hot (Really HOT) and we started early in the morning with this photo shoot on the boat (very kindly gifted by a local acciarolian) Great memories, lots of laughs and we cannot believe it was a year ago. Here are some behind the scenes shots (shot on....iPhone!) - To follow over the next few weeks will be the finished professional unseen shots by @kalle_gustafsson plus a few more behind the scenes goodies. We will also have some exclusive unseen shots for our registered online customers but you can just sign up to our newsletter to get them (on our website). Link in bio. All brought to you with love & herbs. Enjoy 🙏🏻 . . . . #henrycavill #acciaroli #no1botanicals #superherbs #superman #behindthescenes #rosemarywater #centenarian #healthyfood #drinktoyourhealth #nosugar #noadditives #picoftheday #fun #love #herbs #rosemary #naturesmedicinecabinet

Behind The Scenes.....continuing the anniversary vibe of our Acciaroli x @henrycavill trip last year to film our little documentary, we have some more BTS shots (mostly taken on iPhone - keeping it real!) Day 1 was filming around the beautiful village and Day 2 was out on the boat. It was HOT (darn hot) and (of course) Henry was a consummate professional. We had a LOT of fun, laughed a lot (and mucked around a bit) passed around the suncream a lot and stayed hydrated with a lovely refreshing botanical drink (🤔) But we were all super focused and worked very hard to make it magical (Ok we may have had a cheeky cocktail or two in the evening at the wrap party) And at the end of the day we all watched that wonderful Mediterranean sun slowly go down on the magical village of Acciaroli.... . . . . #henrycavill #acciaroli #rosemary #rosemaryhasasecret #health #picoftheday #superman #and #super #herb #whyrosemary #thewitcher #no1rosemarywater #no1botanicals #centenariansecrets #centenariansdiet #love&herbs #healthiswealth
