'The Witcher' Animation Follows Vesemir

Netflix and The Witcher production team have been keeping busy. Not only is season 2 filming starting this month, but an animated film is also underway! Showrunner Lauren Hissrich and writer Beau DeMayo are working alongside Studio Mir (Legend of Korra and Netflix's Voltron: Legendary Defender) to bring The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf to life. While not much is currently known, Netflix has just released an official description:

Long before mentoring Geralt, Vesemir begins his own journey as a witcher after the mysterious Deglan claims him through the Law of Surprise.

Vesemir, who was briefly mentioned in season 1 via Geralt's flashbacks, is one of the oldest living witchers. He has trained many children who survived the Trail of the Grasses, and is seen as a father figure to Geralt. Mark Hamill took to social media to express his interest in playing the role of Vesemir, and fans have been rallying to make that happen.

While Hamill is most well known for his role as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, it should be noted that he also voiced prolific acting experience in roles such as: the Joker (Batman), Fire Lord Ozai (Avatar: the Last Airbender), Muska (Castle in the Sky english dub), and Chucky (Child's Play). Whether or not he will be involved in The Witcher, is still currently up for speculation.
