Earlier this year, we reported that Netflix is producing an animated film for the drama series “The Witcher” in cooperation with Studio Mir from South Korea. Now the VoD provider announced that it will be released on the platform next year.
Film is Made in Studio Mir
The animated film, which Netflix itself calls an “anime film”, is titled “The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf” and is produced by Laura S. Hissrich in Studio Mir (“Big Fish & Begonia”, “The Legend of Korra”). The screenplay was written by Beau DeMayo, who co-wrote the first season of “The Witcher”.
Exactly what the story is about is not yet known. The announcement at the time referred only to a “new threat to the continent”.
“The Witcher” is a fantasy series from the USA and Poland, based on the “Geralt Saga” by author Andrzej Sapkowski. The eight-part first season was released on Netflix on December 20, 2019. A second season is currently in the works and is scheduled for release in 2021.
