Netflix's THE WITCHER: NIGHTMARE OF THE WOLF Anime Will Focus On Geralt’s Mentor Vesemir
According to the now-deleted synopsis for Netflix's The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, the recently revealed anime movie won't focus on Geralt, but instead will shed new light on Vesemir — the main character's beloved master.
"Long before mentoring Geralt, Vesemir begins his own journey as a witcher after the mysterious Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise," the aforementioned synopsis reads.
In the Witcher universe, Vesemir played a key role in training new generations of witchers. The character at Kaer Morhen also acted as a father figure to Geralt. In his old age, Vesemir became the last experienced witcher remaining following the terrible outbreak of purges against his brothers in arms. Unfortunately, Vesemir didn't possess the knowledge necessary to mutate more possible disciples into witchers.
Considering that The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is produced by Lauren S. Hissrich and Beau DeMayo — the team that's also working on the second season of The Witcher — it's safe to say that the animated flick will serve as a full-blown prequel to last year's streaming phenomenon and its continuation.
Nightmare of the Wolf is being created at Studio Mir, the makers of the acclaimed Legend of Korra TV show.
As a reminder, Vesemir is expected to make his live-action debut in the second season of The Witcher — coming in 2021 — with some fans believing that Mark Hamill (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) should play the part.
