There’s a lot going on in the world of The Witcher over on Netflix, with the streaming service currently working on three separate projects based on author Andrzej Sapkowski much-loved fantasy novels. First out of the gate, though, is animated movie The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, and it’s just received its first proper trailer ahead of its launch on 23rd August.
Nightmare of the Wolf, which was announced at the start of last year, is a prequel to Netflix’s main live-action show and focusses on Geralt of Rivia’s friend and mentor Vesemir, “long before” the two meet. Indeed, it’ll supposedly hurtle back in time to the start of Vesemir’s journey as a Witcher, “after the mysterious Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise”.
Netflix offered a brief glimpse of Nightmare of the Wolf earlier this month, but the streaming service has now given Witcher fans a more substantial look at the movie in its first proper trailer, in which a dashing Vesemir flirts, quips, and slays his way to adventure.
