    The world of The Witcher expands in this anime origin story:
    Before Geralt, there was his mentor Vesemir - a swashbuckling
    young witcher who escaped a life of poverty to slay monsters for
    coins. But when a strange new monster begins terrorizing a
    politically fraught kingdom, Vesemir finds himself on a
    frightening adventure that forces him to confront the demons of
    his past.

    In addition to James, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf will
    also feature the voices of Lara Pulver (Sherlock) as Tetra,
    Graham McTavish (Outlander) as Deglan, and Mary McDonell  (Dance
    with Wolves) as Lady Zerbst.

    In the books, Vesemir is the mentor and a father figure for Geralt
    of Rivia. The story will explore his early years as a Witcher
    after the mysterious Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise.

    The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf is written and produced by Beau
    DeMayo. It is also produced by The Witcher showrunner Lauren
    Schmidt Hissrich. The anime film hails from Studio Mir, the Korean
    animation studio behind Nickelodeon's Legend of Korra, and
    Netflix's original anime series Voltron Legendary Defender.

    whatever is necessary to protect them.
