It’s not that fans of the upcoming The Witcher series adaptation from Netflix haven’t been appreciative of what they gotten so far from the streaming service, with some key art, first-look images, and even a teaser that have them feeling (cautiously) optimistic for Henry Cavill‘s (Justice League) turn as Geralt.

Last week, the fine folks at Netflix Italia offered fans a brief but action-packed “mini-teaser” (at :16, probably the best thing to call it) that builds nicely from the teaser released over the summer.
