The Witcher Series Is Getting an Anime Film

Netflix is expanding 'The Witcher' franchise.

Looks like we no longer have to wait until 2021 for some Witcher content because Netflix has announced that it’s developing a film based on the hit Netflix show. Anime lovers rejoice because the film adaptation will be an anime film.

With The Witcher now on the way to be the streaming giant’s best and biggest first season debut ever, it’s no surprise they’re expanding The Witcher franchise to cover all the bases.

The anime film will be titled Nightmare of the Wolf and will explore untouched parts of The Witcher universe. The film will tackle a new threat to the Continent, although the storyline and voice cast is still under wraps. But we’re banking on the series cast to lend their voices to the animated film. Because really, no one can duplicate Henry Cavill’s iconic “hmm.”

Nightmare of the Wolf will be produced by The Witcher showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and Beau DeMayo, so there’s no doubt the film will be in good hands. Also on board is Studio Mir, the Korean animation studio behind Nickelodeon’s Legend of Korra and Netflix’s Voltron Legendary Defender.


A release date is yet to be announced, but all reports suggest it will be out before season two starts streaming in 2021.

With no other details to go on, we’re just hoping “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher” is on the anime film’s soundtrack.
