Netflix has now come up with another Witcher spin-off film. It will be an animated feature movie that is going to narrate the story of Vesemir. We will learn about how he started his journey in the form of a Witcher. The film is called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. As of right now, news has come out that its script has been penned down by Beau DeMayo. This iconic writer has even written the third episode of The Witcher season 1. He is also set on writing The Witcher season 2 episode 2.
All this while, we have DeMayo joining the writer’s group for Moon Knight. It is a Disney Plus series that is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In this forthcoming film project for the animate Witcher spinoff, we also have the presence of Lauren S. Hissrich. She has been the showrunner for the entire run of The Witcher season 1. Although, we do not quite know the task that she is going to serve in the upcoming film. It is quite likely that she is going to just supervise the whole film and see whether or not its story is in collaboration with the original Witcher saga.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf ― Production Status?
All this while, you guys should know that the studio which is going to do the animation on Nightmare of the Wolf is Studio Mir. It is a Korean studio that is quite famous in the industry of entertainment for their work on Legend of Korra which was the Avatar: The Last Airbender spinoff show. Well, if the studio does the animation as well as the one on Korra, then all the fans could consider this as a treat probably.
Another query that arises in the mind of all the fans is why the creators have chosen to make this spinoff show as an animated feature. Well, to answer this, we must look at the success that The Witcher has proven itself to be. This made a fact clear to Netflix that the audience is very eager to see more stories from The Continent. This is why it comes out as no form of a surprise to all the fans that the platform made a decision to create a spinoff film. Recently, writer Beau DeMayo was asked about this question.
Why is the film animated?
To this, he replied that the world of The Witcher is pretty huge and he has started out his career as working in the form of an assistant as well as an executive at Disney in animation. He says that it was where he received his first job in the industry and this is when Lauren came up to him and asked to write the film. So, he says that he suggested the idea of doing an animated feature because everything that we can do in animation can not be done in live and active.
DeMayo says that there is not necessarily a parity that exists between these two mediums. According to him, there are things that a creator can do in animated films that will look badass but if the same is done in live-action, it will come off as a goof and prove a little false to the human eye.
