Today, Netflix released a teaser trailer and images, giving us another look at The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, in addition to revealing the global voice cast. Netflix has been knocking the ball out of the park with its original anime selections both Japan and produced outside of it. Now, we’re getting an anime in The Witcher universe.
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 Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is written and produced by Beau DeMayo and co-produced by The Witcher Showrunner and Executive Producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and Studio Mir’s Kwang Il Han who is also directing.
Voice cast includes:
- Vesemir – Theo James
- Tetra – Lara Pulver
- Deglan – Graham McTavish
- Lady Zerbst – Mary McDonnell
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf premieres worldwide on August 23, 2021.
