Andrzej Sapkowski fans and adult anime adorers were treated to a further look into Netflix original anime movie The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf today, with a new teaser trailer, series images and the voice cast reveal. As previously announced, the prequel feature animated by Korea’s Studio Mir will debut worldwide on August 23.
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 coin. 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 English-language voice cast will be led by Theo James (Caslevania, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, Divergent films) reprising his Witcher stint as young Vesemir, Lara Pulver (Dota: Dragon’s Blood, The Alienist, AMC’s upcoming Pantheon) as Tetra, Graham McTavish (Castlevania, Outlander, The Witcher‘s Dijkstra) as Deglan and Mary McDonnell (Fargo, The Closer, Battlestar Galactica) as Lady Zerbst.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is written and produced by Beau DeMayo and co-executive produced and directed by The Witcher showrunner and EP Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and Studio Mir’s Kwang Il Han.
