Go forth, errants, to walk the Way’s Margin
Beyond the village there stands a tall hedge
To keep the Blackwood at bay.
Kept safe from danger, from pagans and elves,
If only we follow the Way.
The Blackwood is Grimm’s Tales directed by Zhang Yimou. It adapts American folklore in the same way the Witcher series adapts European tales. The Blackwood is the story of humanity in a vast, magical forest, with poignant themes of environmental danger and political upheaval amid high-flying fantasy action. The Elder King has been gone for fourteen years, and only the wit and daring of errant adventurers can uncover the secrets needed to restore harmony and prosperity to the kingdom. But the Blackwood is the home of the strange and magical elves, most of whom would do anything to rid their domain of human corruption.
