Netflix released a new teaser trailer for the upcoming Witcher anime film Nightmare of the Wolf, along with confirmation of the main voice cast and a batch of character images.
The teaser begins with a voiceover from a young Vesemir, who recounts a skewed tale of a witcher's role on the Continent. We then see Vesemir hunting monsters in his prime, revealing his kind's true purpose.
In addition to the teaser, Netflix confirmed that Vesemir will be voiced by Theo James, Tetra will be voiced by Lara Pulver, Deglan will be voiced by Graham McTavish and Lady Zerbst will be voiced by Mary McDonnell. Stills of all four characters are below:
Nightmare of the Wolf is a full-length anime film from Studio Mir and director Han Kwang II. Notably, it will explore the never-before-told backstory of Vesemir, the mentor and father figure of Geralt of Rivia. It will also lead into Season 2 of The Witcher, where Vesemir will make his live-action debut.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf arrives on Netflix Aug. 23.
