Today we finally have some information on what the recently-announced animated Witcher film is all about: and it's Geralt's father figure Vesemir.
A short description for The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf has appeared on Netflix's website, and reveals the film takes place "long before" Vesemir mentors Geralt. It sounds like it will focus on the start of Vesemir's journey as a witcher, having been claimed by a mysterious character called Deglan via the law of surprise. Yes, that pesky rule is back again.

So, who will play Vesemir? After Mark Hamill publicly expressed an interest in playing Vesemir in the main Netflix series, Witcher fans have been practically campaigning for him to get the role - particularly as Hamill has ample experience as a voice actor. Regardless of who plays Vesemir, I'm Luking forward to it.
