Not sure why people keep saying that CDprojekt red has all the rights to The Witcher series (with the exception of the books etc.) because all it seems to be is that they have the game rights to The Witcher series.

Which of course would be f***** epic. Foltest battles and trolls etc.
OMG my imagination is going crazy with you saying that. Perfect example dude. Even though about half if LOTR is CGI, it's how they implemented it that made it seem real. I doubt they'll do the same for a small budget Netflix film. But my imagination can run crazy anyway

Because the original author sold everything to them. Instead of taking a loss of ownership of probably half, he didn't think it would be successful in terms of money. So he took a lump sum. He's pretty upset with himself in hindsight not taking a loss of part ownership and earning money overtime...
They don't have rights over the books. But they have rights to everything else.

well as far as tv series budgets go, Game of thrones did very well in terms of mass scale battles, casting, CGI etc. I think they had the perfect blend. Witcher allows the same amount of imagination to create something spectacular.

Have to say I prefer when they do monsters partially as puppets and then complete it with post CGI effects. Looks much more natural. But I think in this case beggars can't be choosers.

puppets? you mean people covered in sensors? if so yes, thats how it was done with LoTR and the Hobbit trilogy.

This will obviously have comparisons to Game of Thrones, but I hope they keep the series centered around Geralt and don't step outside the boundaries too far. Game of Thrones was just expansive and impersonal.

LOTR monsters we're basically all CGI. Only gollum was motion captured but even then half of his performance is all CGI. Not sure about hobbit. But I gaurentee it was way more CGI.

Hobbit used motion sensors (not for everything). Smaug for example you can see on youtube was done by Benedict Cumberbatch himself. Pretty impressive to watch.
