Coming this August is a new look into the ever expanding Witcher universe with Nightmare of the Wolf, a prequel anime movie hitting Netflix.

Focusing on a young Vesemir, Nightmare of the Wolf will tell a new story set before the events revolving around Geralt of Rivia.

Nightmare of the Wolf shares the universe of the live-action Netflix series that adapts the original Witcher books penned by Andrzej Sapkowski.

Fleshing out the backstory of Vesemir in his younger years, Nightmare of the Wolf seems to hit all the usual Witcher story beats based on the teaser trailer.

It isn't clear what the exact plotline of Nightmare of the Wolf will be, but we are talking about one movie here, not a series.

The voice cast of the main characters has also been revealed by Netflix alongside the teaser trailer. Theo James voices the leading Witcher, Vesemir.

He is joined by Lara Pulver as Tetra, Graham McTavish as Deglan (not Declan) and Mary McDonnell as Lady Zerbst.

Han Kwang II is directing with Studio Mir behind the production.

The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf airs on Netflix on the 23rd of August.
