Update: This anime movie will focus not on Geralt, but his teacher, Vesemir (thanks, Eurogamer). The official description is as follows:
Long before mentoring Geralt, Vesemir begins his own journey as a witcher after the mysterious Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise.
Mark Hamill, then? He certainly looks the part...
Original Story [Thu 23rd Jan, 2020 02:10 GMT]: After the success of the books and video games, Netflix is cashing in on The Witcher. Most recently we saw it release season one of its digital series starring Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, and now the streaming giant is interested telling more stories from the same universe.
Following ongoing rumours, it has confirmed The Witcher "anime" film is indeed a thing. This was confirmed by the official @NXOnNetflix Twitter account, which went on to explain how this upcoming movie was titled The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf and is being handled by The Witcher's showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich and writer Beau DeMayo.
As noted, the story will be about a "new threat" facing the Continent, and Studio Mir – the studio behind The Legend of Korra – will be helping out. This follows the recent news that the first season of Netflix's Witcher series was viewed by 76 million households for at least two minutes. Odd, we know.
