Netflix has revealed the main characters and voice cast for The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, an anime origin story that tells the story of Geralt’s mentor, Vesemir.
Vesemir, voiced by Theo James (of The Divergent series), is described as a “reckless young witcher” who slaughters monsters to end his poverty. In Nightmare of the Wolf, Vesemir embarks on a new adventure to rid a politically charged kingdom of a strange new monster. The journey also confronts him with demons from his own past.
Vesemir’s journey brings him into contact with Tetra (Lara Pulver), Deglan (Graham McTavish), and Lady Zerbst (Mary McDonnell). You can see all four characters from the anime in the gallery below.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf will be available August 23 and serves as a prequel to the Witcher TV series. The anime is directed by Studio Mir’s Kwang II Han and produced by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich and Beau DeMayo.
