Michelle Yeoh, Lenny Henry, Mirren Mack, Nathaniel Curtis and Dylan Moran also star.

"The Witcher: Blood Origin tells the story of seven strangers who join together to fight an unstoppable empire. Though they hail from warring clans, Éile and Fjall must learn to trust one another if they have any hope of leading this band of outcasts on their quest to topple the Continent's oppressors. But, when gateways to other worlds are opened and a power-hungry sage unleashes a new weapon, the Seven realize they must create a monster in order to defeat one..." an official synopsis reads.

The Witcher: Blood Origin premieres Dec. 25 on Netflix.
