On August 23rd, Netflix will release the anime-inspired film.
Netflix’s animated Witcher film, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, is nearly here. A new trailer features more of the heroic monster fighting and charismatic heroism of Geralt’s mentor Vesemir.
This film will be set before the live-action series. It will provide more information about the Witcher’s world and how the magically mutated monster hunter is created. The film will also give background information on Vesemir, who is set to appear in the show’s next season, which arrives in December.
The anime spinoff’s new trailer also features more of Witcher‘s expanded universe and some impressive fight scenes and effects that would have been much harder to achieve in live-action.
Kwang Il Han, Studio Mir’s director, said that one of the benefits of animated animation was that the witchers could carry their iconic dual blades. These restrictions are not present in anime.
This trailer is a short teaser that was released last month. It comes just weeks before the debut of the animated movie on August 23rd.
