The content of the trailer can be summed up as follows: “Escaped from poverty to become a witch, Vesemir kills monsters for money and glory, but when a new threat arises, he must face it with the demons of my past.”
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf tells the story of Vesemir, providing some context and insight into the protagonist’s journey. This is a useful source of information to prepare for the return of The Witcher part 2.
The animated project serves as a prequel to The Witcher series and is developed by the same production team. The production team chose the animation genre because they believed it was the best way to tell this story and convey what the traditional film genre could not do. In March 2020, screenwriter Beau DeMayo said that the story was not made in live-action form because this cinematic format would create a burden for the production process.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf opens on August 23 and is available only on Netflix.
