Netflix bringing us a The Witcher anime movie

January 22nd, 2020 by Marc Comments

Netflix has just announced that the Henry Cavill-starring The Witcher was one of their biggest hits in their catalogue ( 76 million accounts watched The Witcher in its first four weeks of release), and with the confirmation that Season 2 is coming but not until 2021, fans are already groaning at the wait.

However, it looks like Netflix have already jumped in to fix that problem by giving the go ahead to an anime movie from Korean animation house Studio Mir.

The movie will explore “a powerful new threat facing the Continent” and will be called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.

It has also confirmed that it will expand the mythology of the live-action series which, presumably, means it is also in the same canon.

Showrunner Lauren Hissrich has said that she has had to keep this movie a secret for a year and is happy that it’s finally out there:

Studio Mir brought us the excellent The Legend of Korra and Voltron: Legendary Defender, so it should be in very safe hands.

So, have you seen The Witcher? Are you excited for this? I want to hear your thoughts, gang…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
