In case you missed the announcement, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is an animated film which will serve as a prequel to the live-action Witcher series. The movie follows Vesemir, a Witcher who was Geralt’s mentor.
The film’s premise is described by Netflix as:
“The world of The Witcher expands in this anime origin story: Before Geralt, there was his mentor Vesemir — a swashbuckling young witcher who escaped a life of poverty to slay monsters for coin. But when a strange new monster begins terrorizing a politically-fraught kingdom, Vesemir finds himself on a frightening adventure that forces him to confront the demons of his past.”
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is written and produced by Beau DeMayo and co-produced by The Witcher seeries Showrunner and Executive Producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich. The film is animated by Studio Mir, and is directed by Kwang Il Han.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf premieres on Netflix on August 23, 2021.
