It’s been revealed that Netflix is going to expand on its The Witcher property even more by making a new animated movie set in the universe called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.
The Witcher Season 1 just landed on Netflix and quickly became one of its biggest hits of last year.
It somehow managed to make it into Netflix’s ten most-watched originals and I’m still not entirely sure how that happened.
It came in sixth position, and the top ten list didn’t even feature The Crown, which I was really surprised by.
The Witcher’s first season is also on course to become Netflix’s most-watched debut season of any show they’ve ever made, which is utter madness.
Anyway, it seems as though Netflix really wants to milk this Witcher cow as much as they can as IGN revealed that they are working on a new animated Witcher movie, which I’m really excited to see.
I wasn’t the biggest fan of the show, but I saw a lot of potential and I think that Henry Cavill makes a very good Geralt of Rivia.

Back to this Witcher movie, it’s been revealed that it’ll be called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.
It’ll be made by Netflix’s The Witcher producers Lauren Hissrich and Beau DeMayo, and Studio Mir, the brilliant Korean animation studio behind The Legend of Korra and Voltron: Legendary Defender.
I have to say that this really does sound exciting as far as I’m concerned. Netflix has ensured they’ve got the best possible people leading this project and I’m looking forward to seeing the final product.
This is what Netflix had to say about their upcoming animated feature, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf: “The world of The Witcher expands in this anime film that explores a new threat facing the Continent.”
They didn’t offer any casting news, but I’m hoping they get Henry Cavill in to voice Geralt of Rivia.
That said, it’s not even sure whether he’ll be in this animated movie.
