Netflix’s take on Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse is fast approaching, which means fans are bound to see more and more of their favorite characters come to life in clips and scenes. We now have our first look at Baghra.
Netflix unveiled a clip from the upcoming ‘Shadow and Bone’ series which features Alina Starkov — the Sun Summoner — harnessing her light powers in the palm of her hand. A familiar character (Baghra!) commands Alina to “Bring the light … again!”
Watch it here:
Leigh Bardugo reacted to the clip by tweeting, “Baghra does not mess around.”
In the books, Baghra serves as a teacher to Alina. She’s tough but it’s apparent from the moment you meet her that she has a layered history and that there’s a lot more to her beyond her strict nature. Baghra is played by Zoë Wanamaker, who portrayed Madam Hooch in ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.’
It’s a small dose of the show, but it’s still neat to see such an interesting character come to life, if even for a second or two.
‘Shadow and Bone’ releases April 23.
