The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf Trailer Released by Netflix

Next month, Netflix will be releasing The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, and today, the streaming giant has released a new trailer for the upcoming animated film. The animated film is being co-produced by the South Korean Sutdio Mir, the team who worked on Dota: Dragon's Blood and Legend of Korra

You can watch the new trailer for The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf below: 


Originally announced at the first-ever WitcherCon earlier this month, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf will follow the adventures of young Vesemir, and it's set several years before Geralt's adventures that fans are familiar with. Despite the time difference, however, the monster hunter's place in the world doesn't look much different. It seems that Vesemir's only concern in the world is monster hunting and how much coin he gets paid for doing the Witcher job. Geralt's mentor is also set to appear in The Witcher Season 2.
