THE WITCHER: NIGHTMARE OF THE WOLF Anime Film To Focus On A Young Vesemir

THE WITCHER: NIGHTMARE OF THE WOLF Anime Film To Focus On A Young Vesemir

It seems the anime film set in the world of Henry Cavill's live-action Witcher TV series will focus on the man who taught Geralt everything he knows about fighting monsters.

Previously, Netflix announced plans for an anime film set in between season 1 and season 2 of The Witcher. However, it sounds as if that project will (at the very least) take place long before Geralt became a badass monster killer.

That's because the anime film will focus on Geral't mentor Vesemir.  The description of the show in a press release from Netflix reads:

"Long before mentoring Geralt, Vesemir begins his own journey as a witcher after the mysterious Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise."

While Vesemir doesn't appear in the live-action Netflix series, we do hear his voice in the season 1 finale.  If it sounded familiar, that's because it's the voice of Underworld and Divergent mainstay Theo James. James appears to have a strong relationship with Netflix as he's already voiced Hector in the Castlevania anime and Rek'yr in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

Stay tuned for future updates on all things Witcher as we anticipate word on a fourth installment in the video game series and updates on season 2 of the live-action adaptation.
