Highlights! Netflix’s filler is a prequel to Henry Cavill’s Witcher Series – Nightmare of the wolf.
- Henry Cavill has to wait for Season 2 filming
- Fans are horrified at the prospect of waiting to see Geralt of Rivia in Action
- Netflix has decided to give the fans a surprise
- Nightmare of the Wolf – Possibilities
The success of the Netflix series “The Witcher” is huge around the world. Geralt of Rivia became a new identity for Henry Cavill previously known for playing Man of Steel Superman. The Witcher Season 2 demands a long wait but Henry Cavill fans are delighted as Netflix recently announced anime movie “Nightmare of the Wolf”.
But why does it need to be animated instead of a live-action movie? Well because there are some things that even Henry Cavill isn’t Superman enough to do.
Going Beyond The Live-Action Scope
According to writer DeMayo “There’s a grace and an art form to animation, and especially anime, that allows a different flavor.” He further added, “So I think from Lauren and I’s perspective when we came at it, was what is the type of story we can tell? Which, I can’t tell you the story, but what is the type of story that we could tell that we could never tell in our live-action scope?”
DeMayo mentioned the script in itself leverages the animation and has parts that only animation can do. That was the part that has most excited him and he said he can’t wait for fans to see.
Story we could not have told
The writer further said, “Is that, when you see the anime, it’s not just the events, it’s what Studio Mir has been capable of pulling off. It’s what our partners in the anime division at Netflix have been able to pull off. It is something… it is a story we could not have told in live-action in any way, shape or form. At least not with an incredible burden on production, I will say that.”
The world knows that animation has no limit and even unrealistic sequences can be achieved with its help. The beauty of animated action is that it break limits and still manages to look believable. De mayo states that sequences planned for this series are not possible for Henry & Co to execute in a live TV-show.
What’s in Nightmare of the Wolf?
This suggests Netflix subscribers can expect some larger than life action sequences. Big battles with dragons and breathtaking action is on the cards. Animation has immense possibilities.
“Nightmare of the Wolf” will be based back in time before Geralt. The synopsis was taken down by Netflix but It confirmed that Story will be based on Vasemir, who mentored Geralt. The movie will be based on his journey as Deglans claim him through the law of surprise.
Netflix has not announced the release date yet but it is expected before “The Witcher” season 2 live-action series. Let’s see if Netflix is just cashing in on the popularity of “The Witcher” or will deliver a treat to the fans. Fingers crossed for “Nightmare of the Wolf”!
