“The Witcher” movie on Netflix: This fan favorite becomes the main character of “Nightmare Of The Wolf”

After the first season of “The Witcher” and very likely before the second season comes “The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf”. Now it is clear who will be the main character of the anime film – and it is not Geralt (Henry Cavill)!

So not Geralt. Like probably many other fans, we assumed that the anime film ” The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf ” would focus on the main character of the series ” The Witcher ” (Geralt is also known as “the White Wolf” ). But this assumption has now been shattered.

As can be seen from the already available film entry of “Nightmare Of The Wolf” on Netflix , the focus is instead on another character: Vesemir.


The official Synopsis for “The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf” reads: “Long before he supports Geralt as a mentor, Vesemir begins his own journey as a witcher after the mysterious Deglan claims him thanks to the law of surprise.”

We will see in the anime film how Vesemir, something of a father figure for Geralt and the other wizards from the Wolf School, has become a sorcerer at all. The figure Deglan mentioned in the synopsis seems to be a reinvention of the filmmakers  Beau DeMayoand  Lauren Schmidt Hissrich.

On Free2Watch.net you can watch full season of The Witcher.


The law of surprise is one of the central elements of action in all adaptations of “The Witcher” and also plays an important role in the series: In episode 4 we see how the enchanted knight Urcheon / Duny ( Bart Edwards ) calls the law of surprise, to get the hand of his beloved pavetta ( Gaia Mondadori ).

And after Geralt ( Henry Cavill ) Urcheon / Duny saved his life, he also referred to the law (or right) of surprise as a reward in the same episode: “Give me what you have, but you don’t know about yet As it turns out, this is the unborn child with whom Pavetta is pregnant – and so the fates of Geralt and Ciri ( Freya Allan ) are connected.


A young Vesemir can already be heard in episode 8 of the first season “The Witcher” and is spoken in the original English version by  Theo James (“Divergent” series). It seems unlikely that James was only hired for such a short appearance – so it is quite possible that he will also be heard in “Nightmare Of The Wolf” as Vesemir.

“The Witcher: Nightmare Of The Wolf” will probably be released on Netflix later in 2020.
