Netflix announces The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf anime film

Fresh off the heels of the success of The Witcher Netflix series, the streamer is doubling down on its Witcher investments and announced that an anime film in currently in the works.

According to Deadline, the film, called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, is being produced by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and Beau DeMayo, the same team behind the live action Witcher series. The animation will be done by Studio Mir, the same studio behind the lauded Netflix Voltron reboot, Voltron: Legendary Defender.

As far as story, we’re not sure if the film will tie into the live action series as the only descriptor given was “The world of The Witcher expands in this anime film that explores a powerful new threat facing The Continent.”

The live action series has already been renewed for season two, however, we probably won't see it until 2021. It could be possible that the film could fill a story gap between the two seasons.

There’s no word on when the film will arrive on Netflix or if anyone from the live action cast will reprise any roles in the film.
