The Witcher: the original reaction to the Netflix controversy

A fan creates a mod in response to the changes Netflix could introduce to Ciri's character.

While the series production The Witcher developed by Netflix go ahead, details as important as the main cast begin to close. It has already been confirmed that Henry Cavill, the last cinematic Superman, will be Geralt of Rivia, a controversial decision among fans. But not as much as the possibility that Netflix can take creative liberties with Ciri.


Apparently the Netflix production is looking for a young actress between 15 or 16 years old, of African, Asian, or other ethnic minority descent, to play Ciri. A difference from the version most known to fans, presented by CD Projekt RED in their game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which has generated many discussions among fans of the saga. One of the most original reactions from the players has been creating a mod that changes Ciri's skin color.


This new mod for The Witcher 3 is nothing more than a variation of Ciri's character design that gives Ciri a dark skin color. It is a mere aesthetic complement, which can be downloaded for free from Nexus Mods, and which tries to adjust the game to the possible version of the character in the series. We remind readers that the reactions to this possibility in forums and social networks forced the head of The Witcher at Netflix to leave Twitter because of the criticism.
