How Netflix built the fantasy world of Shadow and Bone

As we get closer to the release of Netflix’s new fantasy series, Shadow and Bone, they’ve brought out a featurette on how the world of Ravka and its surroundings has been brought to life by the creative team – including some words from Leigh Bardugo, the author of the original books, on how the adaptation has played out.

My interest was piqued from the first look we had back in February, but if that and the trailer wasn’t enough to sell you on the story, take a peek behind the curtain with the featurette below.

Based on Leigh Bardugo’s worldwide bestselling Grishaverse novels, Shadow and Bone finds us in a war-torn world where lowly soldier and orphan Alina Starkov has just unleashed an extraordinary power that could be the key to setting her country free. With the monstrous threat of the Shadow Fold looming, Alina is torn from everything she knows to train as part of an elite army of magical soldiers known as Grisha. But as she struggles to hone her power, she finds that allies and enemies can be one and the same and that nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. There are dangerous forces at play, including a crew of charismatic criminals, and it will take more than magic to survive. Shadow and Bone is a Netflix production from 21 Laps Entertainment, starring Jessie Mei Li (Alina Starkov), Archie Renaux (Malyen Oretsev), Freddy Carter (Kaz Brekker), Amita Suman (Inej), Kit Young (Jesper Fahey), and Ben Barnes (General Kirigan).
