The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, the prequel anime series of the show starring Henry Cavill like Geralt Di Rivia, he showed himself with a new trailer.
It was obviously Netflix, the platform that produced the animated film, to publish the new promotional video dubbed in Italian of this highly anticipated project based on the famous fantasy franchise born from the literary saga of Andrzej Sapkowski.
When does Nightmare of the Wolf come out?
The protagonist of the story, which will debut on the streaming catalog of the red N on 23 August 2021, is Vesemir, Geralt’s mentor who in the trailer we see accompanying a witch, underlining how the bond between witchers and magic has always been indissoluble.
The world of The Witcher is expanding more and more this time with an original animated story. Before Geralt lived his mentor, Vesemir, a bold and young hunter who managed to escape poverty by killing monsters for money. However, when a strange new being begins to terrorize an already politically tense kingdom, Vesemir finds himself on an adventure that will force him to face demons from his past.
The trailer anticipates that the film will also lead us to discover Vesemir’s difficult and turbulent childhood, events and details hitherto unknown.
