Following WitcherCon, I’ve been excited to find out more about The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. Surely I’m not alone? After all, we’re talking about a Witcher anime film, by Studio Mir. It will tell the story of Vesemir, the mentor of Geralt of Rivia, and by the looks of it, he’s just like our beloved White Wolf. He’s suave, good-looking, and excellent with blades and potions. He’s willing to work for coin and glory, but to what extent? Well, luckily we won’t have to wait long. The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf trailer, found below, reveals and confirms the release date: August 23, 2021. Thus, we’re merely a month from the anime film’s premiere on Netflix. Now, I suggest you watch the Nightmare of Wolf trailer, and make sure you enjoy it. It’s pretty short.

“Witchers are rogues without virtue, true diabolic creations, fit only for killing. There is no place amidst honest men for them…” – Vesemir
Plot: Nightmare of the Wolf follows Geralt’s mentor, Vesemir. At the time of the film, he’s a young man who’s trying to escape poverty by doing various jobs. Most of them see him fighting “bad” people or killing monsters, but as long as the coin is good, he’s not going to complain. In turn, he’s just like the young man he’d mentor in the future, Geralt. No wonder he picked up on the old man’s habits of swooning ladies, taking erotic baths, and fighting for both coin and glory! If I didn’t know any better, I’d think that Vesemir and Geralt were related! Nevertheless, a young Vesemir soon finds himself fighting for more than coin and glory, twisted in an epic battle with demons from his past.
