Netflix has revealed a first look at The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf in a new teaser trailer. In addition, the streamer has also revealed the global voice cast and first look images of the main characters. The anime film will premiere worldwide on 23 August 2021.
The world of The Witcher expands in this anime origin story: Before Geralt, there was his mentor Vesemir. The story centres on the swashbuckling young witcher who escaped a life of poverty to roam the Continent slaying monsters for coin and glory.
But when a strange new monster begins terrorising a politically fraught kingdom, Vesemir finds himself on a frightening adventure that forces him to confront the demons of his past.
The English voice cast features Theo James as Vesemir, alongside Lara Pulver as Tetra, Graham McTavish as Deglan, and Mary McDonnell as Lady Zerbst.
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.
