THE WITCHER: NIGHTMARE OF THE WOLF Full Trailer And New Character Images Released
Following last week's announcement teaser, Netflix has debuted a full trailer and new images for upcoming The Witcher anime prequel Nightmare of the Wolf, which will focus on Geralt's mentor, Vesemir.
Last year, Netflix announced plans for an anime film which will serve as a prequel to The Witcher, and the first full trailer for Nightmare of the Wolf has now been unveiled along with some new character images.
Specific plot details for Nightmare of the Wolf are still under wraps, but we do know that the story will revolve around a younger take on Geralt's mentor, Vesemir. This experienced witcher was a major supporting character in the books and video games, but this will be the first time his past is explored in any great detail. Vesemir will be played by Kim Bodnia in the upcoming second season of The Wicther.
You can get a first glimpse of young Vesemir below, along with witcher leader Declan, sorceress Tetra Gilcrest, and Kaedwen noblewoman Lady Zerbst.
Deglan was raised on the harsh, unforgiving Skellige Isles and is the hardened warrior-leader of the witchers. He is fiercely loyal to his “boys,” and committed to doing whatever is necessary to protect them. pic.twitter.com/2NoXrreCXH— The Witcher (@witchernetflix) July 21, 2021
Vesemir grew up as a servant on a nobleman’s estate, working long days for too little coin. He yearns to break free of his social standing and to explore the Continent to find his destiny.— The Witcher (@witchernetflix) July 21, 2021

Vesemir will be voiced by Theo James, Tetra will play Lara Pulver, Deglan will be voiced by Graham McTavish, and BSG alum Mary McDonnell will bring Lady Zerbst to life.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is set to premiere on August 23.
