After the success of The Witcher, Netflix has announced Nightmare of the Wolf, an animated film that will be released sometime before Season 2. Surprisingly, we won’t hear Henry Cavill in this one as it will be about Geralt’s mentor and father figure, Vesemir.
The official description reads: “Long before mentoring Geralt, Vesemir begins his own journey as a witcher after the mysterious Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise.”
This is certainly an original story and it will be exciting to see where it takes the old wolf we know and love from the games. But who will voice Vesemir?
It’s possible that Vesemir will be voiced by the same man who voiced him in Season 1: Theo James (Divergent, Underworld). Towards the end of season one’s finale we hear one line by Vesemir which is voiced by James. It’s not out of the question that he recorded that line during the voice sessions for Nightmare of the Wolf. Theo James has already done quite a bit of voice acting for Netflix on Castlevania and The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, so this wouldn’t be new for him.
Other than Theo James, we have reported that voice actress Harriet Kershaw has provided her voice for “various roles”. It could very well be for this project.
Nightmare of the Wolf is expected to release before season two of The Witcher (which is slated for release in 2021). We look forward to hearing more about this project and perhaps seeing a teaser very soon.
