If you watched the ending the magician‘s the second seasonIn this article, I took a closer look at the new villains of Season 3 – Wild Hunt, a group of seven skeleton-horse riders who travel through the skies and make a pun (obviously a pun) upon the capture of Princess Ciri and the elder who bestows magic blood. Now, model Lauren Schmidt Hissrich has explained how the magician Bringing them to life – and why the Wild Hunt appears on the show, even though they barely appear in it Andrei SapkowskiOriginal novels.
As for the reason, the answer is in part because they are the main competitors of the very popular video game CD Projekt Red The Witcher: Wild Hunt. Considering that the critically acclaimed game is the way most of the western world has become a fan of it the magician, which led to the book sale and its live adaptation, Hissrich knew those fans were expecting Wild Hunt to appear in the TV series. But they’re also an important part of Ciri’s character evolution, as Hissrich explains in the video about villains:
It is interesting that Hissrich says that they are “like folklore” in a world the magician, because they are also real world folklore too, particularly among the cultures of Northern Europe, including the native Poland of Sapkowski. Like their fictional counterparts, the Wild Hunt was a group of ghostly and supernatural beings often described as riding the skies, kidnapping people to join their host, and heralding war, plague, and other tragedies. In some places they were seen as dead, in others as dead.
to say how much the magicianA Wild Hunt that adheres or does not adhere to these legends would be an unnecessary spoiler, but suffice it to say it has a lot more going on than Hissrich currently allows. Whether these secrets will be revealed in the prequel series blood origin or the magician Season 3 is still to be seen, but either way, the quest has begun.
