The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf Trailer Shows How Witchers Are Made

The Witcher universe is finally expanding. A year and a half after the debut of the first live-action series, Netflix is a few days away from releasing the first anime movie. The upcoming animated spin-off movie will follow the story of Vesemir, the mentor of Geralt of Rivia. And now, the producers have finally released a new trailer for The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. It seems that the story will expand on the guild of the Witchers, revealing the mysterious process they undergo to become such mighty warriors. The video also features some familiar places from the world created by Andrzej Sapkowski, like Kaer Morhen. Of course, there are also plenty of powerful creatures, including Leshens and Bruxas.

Beau DeMayo wrote and produced The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. The project will also see The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich co-producing with Studio Mir’s Kwang Il Han, who is also directing.

Per the official description, “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 coins. 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 voice cast includes Theo James as Vesemir, Lara Pulver as Tetra, Graham McTavish as Deglan, and Mary McDonnell as Lady Zerbst.

Nightmare of the Wolf will debut on Netflix on Aug. 23, 2021. In the meantime, you can check outthe freshly released poster here below.
