Blood, Witchers and monsters. I guess this is what we should have expected from The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf as the show’s first official anime.
Due out on August 23rd, 2021, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is helmed by Lauren S. Hissrich and Beau DeMayo. Hissirch was the showrunner on the live-action and DeMayo a writer.
Netflix describes the show;
Long before mentoring Geralt, Vesemir begins his own journey as a witcher after the mysterious Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise.”
It’s actually from DeMayo where we get a bit more insight and, surprisingly, on romance.
Something with magic and monsters and adventure and romance that you couldn’t necessarily use a live-action medium to tell, and I think when people see the anime and when it releases, there are very particular choices we made. And the script itself, there are certain things it takes advantage of in terms of animation that only animation can do. I think that’s what’s the most exciting thing that I’m waiting for fans to see. Is that, when you see the anime, it’s not just the events, it’s what Studio Mir has been capable of pulling off. It’s what our partners in the anime division at Netflix have been able to pull off. It is something… it is a story we could not have told in live-action in any way, shape or form. At least not with an incredible burden on production, I will say that.
