After the surge of popularity from Netflix’s adaptation of The Witcher, the streaming service has now confirmed rumors that they will be creating an anime movie, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. Which brings us to The Witcher Anime Film news.
Little is known of the exact details, but Beau DeMayo, Lauren Hissrich, and Legend of Korra’s Studio Mir will be producing this title. Studio Mir, the South Korean animation studio known for the Nickelodeon hit The Legend of Korra, has previously worked with Netflix on Voltron: Legendary Defender.
With Netflix devoting a lot of energy toward the second season of The Witcher, it makes sense to add a side store in an animated movie. It is still unclear if the anime and live-action will intertwine the two stories together.
As you can see from the data above, The Witcher has done well with the North American audiences and globally. Parrot Analytics has found that the audience demand for The Witcher is 107.8 times the demand of the average TV series in the United States in the last 30 days. 0.2% of all shows in this market have this level of demand.
On a rolling 30-day average basis, we compare TV demand in the United States for The Witcher to the preceding 30 days: Demand has increased by 359.8%
Geralt of Rivia, a brooding professional monster hunter for hire also known as witcher, struggles to keep his humanity in a medieval dark fantasy world ruled by corrupt kings, queens, and mages, where poverty, violence, and intolerance are rampant, normal humans are sometimes worse than actual monsters and most jobs that pay well involve the darkest of human emotions and desires. Yennefer of Vengerberg is an ambitious mage who came from nothing and wants everything. Princess Cirilla or Ciri is a young girl who may or may not possess some great mysterious power within her. Their destinies, seemingly quite different, slowly intertwine in a rather cosmic fashion. Their companions include Jaskier the bard, Geralt’s endearingly annoying friend, and hype man vowed to spread the word of his heroics throughout the continent even if he has to embellish them a little for a few coins more, Tissaia de Vries, Yennefer’s secretive mentor who believes in tough love, and Triss Merigold, a good-natured druidic mage and trustworthy friend. The Nilfgaardian Empire’s sudden brutal invasion of the kingdom of Cintra ruled by Cirilla’s protective grandmother, warrior queen Calanthe, puts their lives in great danger. -IMDB
