The Witcher Season 3 introduces ten new characters.

Some are undoubtedly literary characters, while others may be unique. Let’s get started!

Season 3 of The Witcher is slowly getting ready to go into production, and casting is well underway. In fact, we already know that a bunch of assassins, The Professor and his men, will make an appearance based on an audition video and will most likely be on the hunt for Yennefer and Ciri. However, there are many more positions to fill in Season 3, and The Illuminderdi obtained a lot of casting descriptions with character codenames. Some are undoubtedly literary characters, while others may be unique. Let’s get started!

“Marylebone” – Milva – Maria Barring

Marylebone is regarded as having “not simply a razor keen wit but also a fast blade.” Her youth belies her experience, since she has had to develop swiftly and learn to live in a harsh environment.” The character and the whole mood remind me of Milva.

The only problem is that Milva’s weapon is a bow rather than a sword. So maybe it’s not her after all? Mistle is another possibility, although she’s much too young at this point in the tale. We’ll see what happens.

Another interesting tidbit is that Netflix is looking for an LGBTQ+ actress to portray this part.

Picadilly

Picadilly is yet another series regular who will appear in Season 3. He’s been characterized as “a guy who is second in line to the throne yet seems to be more prone to a playing lifestyle than a political one.” Though he exudes an easygoing demeanor, he’s a clever strategist and an impassive to boot.”

Netflix is also seeking for an LGBTQ+ actor for this part. While this doesn’t ring any bells in terms of literature, we may just know who he might engage with.

We discovered an audition video for a new Season 3 part of a homosexual noble who was flirting with none other than Jaskier in December. We believed it was a king at the time, but king’s brother makes more sense today. So much so that he refers to his brother on the audition video.

Angel – Aplegatt

This casting description is easily recognized since there is no one else who could be mistaken for him. “A royal messenger, performed by someone who has to know how to ride a horse.” This middle-aged guy was bored of his life and the atrocities he’d encountered on the job until he heard something that changed his perspective forever.”

Margarita Laux-Antille – Margarita Laux-Antille

“Plus-sized and strong, she is a member of a special group of ladies you don’t want to cross,” her description adds. She’s vivacious and self-assured, and she’ll be a match for everyone she encounters in The Witcher.”

While there are numerous sorceresses that fit this description, the casting pattern of having the codename begin with the same letter as the actual name, along with the character being a part of a powerful organization of women, leads to none other than Margarita Laux-Antille. But we’ll see!

Parsons – Fake Ciri

“Plus-sized and strong, she is a member of a special group of ladies you don’t want to cross,” her description adds. She’s vivacious and self-assured, and she’ll be a match for everyone she encounters in The Witcher.”

While there are numerous sorceresses that fit this description, the casting pattern of having the codename begin with the same letter as the actual name, along with the character being a part of a powerful organization of women, leads to none other than Margarita Laux-Antille. But we’ll see!

“A young girl persuaded she is someone else in order to become a political pawn,” we heard months ago. According to Recapped, the alternate definition is “a pupil who has been indoctrinated into thinking they are someone else.”

This sounds a lot like Fake Ciri, who is really someone else being used as a pawn by Emperor Emhyr var Emreis. The program has had one Fake Ciri in the first season, but maybe it can have another this season.

Greenwich

“A courageous and dedicated soldier, represented by an actor in his 20s, who finds his enthusiasm ebb little when he discovers his friends are not as committed as he is,” the description states.

This doesn’t instantly strike any bells, but might this be the genesis tale for Giselher, The Rats’ leader? Perhaps the series might depict him as an idealistic soldier at initially. The Rats, on the other hand, have yet to make an appearance. This is more likely to be a unique character.

Hampstead

“A middle-aged married lady imprisoned in a loveless marriage to a guy who is more like her kid than her husband,” Hampstead is characterized. Despite her courtly status, her comments often fall on deaf ears.”

We can’t tell much about her either, although it’s conceivable that she is Hedwig of Malleore, King Vizimir’s wife and Redania’s queen. Although this was not a common occurrence in the novels, Vizimir does seem to be immature at points in the series, thus it stands to reason that his wife Hedwig would be represented in the manner mentioned above.

Euston

Euston appears to be an original addition to the cast, as her description does not reveal much that can be directly traced back to the books: “a ladies’ maid, played by an actress in her 20s, whose shy and timid appearance conceals a lethal wildcard ready to inflict harm on those who stand in her way.”

Victoria

Victoria’s character description is much briefer: “a stunning free spirit who is fiery yet kind-hearted.”

Richmond

Richmond, meanwhile, is characterized as “a musician who sells instruments for a job and is tired of people thinking they can walk all over her.” Again, not much to go on, but Jaskier is in need of a new lute, so he could pay her a visit at her music store.

Finally, we have a bit more information on Season 3’s casting. The exact cast will be confirmed soon as well. What are your thoughts on these casting descriptions? Please let us know!

Sigourney Weaver is coming back for Avatar 2 CRAZY!

In the first Avatar, Weaver’s scientist character died, but now she’s back as the protagonists’ adopted Na’vi daughter.

We were all surprised when we heard about 17 billion years ago that Sigourney Weaver would be back for James Cameron’s Avatar sequels (even more so than with the idea of there being multiple Avatar sequels). But now that we know how Weaver is going to come back, we’re even more confused.

AVATAR

Empire magazine has said that Weaver will play a completely different character in Avatar: The Way of Water. In the first movie, she played Dr. Grace Augustine, the creator of the Human-Na’vi switcheroo Avatar Program, who died at the end. And no, it’s not a human. It’s Jake and Neytiri’s daughter, who is about to turn 16.

Weaver will play Kiri, Jake and Neytiri’s adopted daughter. It looks like we’ll meet a lot of Jake and Neytiri’s family in The Way of Water. Weaver told Empire what it was like to play a digitized blue teenager, “I think we all pretty much remember how we felt when we were that age.” “Oh, yes, I do. When I was 11, I was 5’10” or 5’11” tall. I was sure Kiri would feel uncomfortable a lot of the time. She wants to find out who she is. When Jim gave me that task, I was thrilled.

Now, adults play children all the time, especially in the world of voice acting, and at least one of the photos Empire released of Kiri makes it look like Weaver will also show up as Dr. Augustine again in some way, probably through old footage. But knowing that the Na’vi are mostly brought to life by fancy mocap rigs, it will be strange to see Weaver’s physical performance put on a teenager. Even though he is a blue alien teen with long arms and legs, he is still a teen.

The movie Avatar: The Way of Water will come out in December 2022.

Disney will show new scenes from “Avatar: The Way of Water” 

Disney started its CineEurope presentation in Barcelona today with 12 minutes of footage from July’s Marvel fourquel Thor: Love and Thunder. Throughout the show, Disney showed trailers and looks at its other upcoming movies, including four never-before-seen scenes from James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water.

Before the Thor footage, Disney’s Head of Global Theatrical Distribution Tony Chambers talked about the importance of immersive storytelling and the studio’s “robust, diverse slate.” This was followed by about 60 minutes of footage that was introduced by EMEA Head of Theatrical Distribution Nick Rush and EMEA Head of Studio Marketing Lee Jury.

There were prerecorded messages from people like Marvel boss Kevin Feige, who said, “It feels like we’re just getting started, even after 14 years.” As he introduced the Love And Thunder scenes, Thor star Chris Hemsworth said he wished he was in Barcelona, where the sangria “always tastes better.”

Harrison Ford sent a video for Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones 5, saying that it had been 13 years since the last movie and that it was “time to put on the fedora and crack the whip.”

We also saw parts of Haunted Mansion, Pixar’s Elemental and Strange World, and the ensemble Amsterdam, which was directed by David O. Russell for New Regency.

Sam Mendes sent a video about Empire Of Light by Searchlight. The director of 1917 said that after making that movie, he wrote this one during lockdown. He said it was a “extremely personal story” about music, movies, and finding love in strange places.

Rebecca Kearey, the international head of Searchlight, showed a trailer for See How They Run, which stars Sam Rockwell and Saoirse Ronan, and a teaser for The Banshees of Inisherin, which stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, directed by Martin McDonagh. Searchlight also showed the first scene of Chevalier, which is about the son of an African slave and a French plantation owner who grows up to be a famous composer in France.

The next movie by Thor director Taika Waititi, Next Goal Wins, got an eight-minute sneak peek. The movie is about the American Samoa soccer team. In 2001, they lost to Australia 31-0, which was the worst loss in World Cup history. Michael Fassbender takes over as their new coach.

Disney’s show ended with a visit from Avatar producer Jon Landau, who flew from New Zealand to Barcelona to talk about the next movie in the series. He said that Avatar: The Way of Water was in the final stages of post-production and that it was important to be in Barcelona “to show our support for the exhibition community.”

Landau said that the strength of James Cameron’s scripts is that they have universal themes. “There is nothing more relatable than family,” he said before showing a message from Cameron.

Cameron from New Zealand said that the people working on Avatar were “pushing the limits even further… Every shot is made for the biggest screen and best resolution that can be achieved… I think this is what people want.” He also said, “Our business is not going away.”

Sigourney Weaver Reveals Her Unconventional Role in ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’

Weaver will portray Jake and Neytiri’s adoptive child.

Many pondered what type of role Sigourney Weaver would have in the sequel to James Cameron’s Avatar after the death of her character, Dr. Grace Augustine, who was the leader of the Avatar Program in the previous film. Finally, in an Empire Magazine exclusive, Weaver shared insights about the role she will portray in Avatar: The Way of Water, as well as a new photograph from the film.

Weaver announced to Empire Magazine that she would play Kiri, the adoptive daughter of Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldaa), in the film. “I believe we all remember what we were experiencing as teens,” Weaver told Empire Magazine exclusively. “I most definitely do. When I was 11, I was 5′ 10″ or 5′ 11″. I had a strong feeling Kiri would be uncomfortable a lot of the time. She’s trying to figure out who she is. Jim’s assignment of that task excited me.”

A fresh picture, which adds to the character’s mystery, has also been unveiled, hinting at some type of link that Kiri would have with Grace. Kiri is seen inside a lab, staring at a monitor with a recording of Grace on it. Despite not being biologically connected to Jake and Neytiri, Kiri seems to have human traits that other Na’vi do not have, such as five digits and eyebrows, adding to the character’s mystery.

Empire exclusive

With an obvious link between the two, as well as both characters being performed by the same actor, viewers can only guess on how significant Kiri’s involvement will be in the plot. The character will also appear on a subscriber-exclusive cover of Empire Magazine, which depicts her swimming underwater appreciating Pandora’s aquatic life, as shown in the first teaser.

Weaver and Cameron will work together again for Avatar: The Way of Water, having previously played Ellen Ripley in Aliens and Grace in the first Avatar film. Along with Weaver, Stephen Lang will reprise his role as Colonel Miles Quaritch, the man responsible for Grace’s death, in the sequel. Quaritch, like Weaver’s character, perished in the first film, fueling curiosity regarding his participation in Avatar: The Way of Water. While the roles of both actors remain unknown, fan speculation may continue until the highly anticipated film is released later this year.

On December 16, Avatar: The Way of Water will be released exclusively in cinemas.
