The streaming service confirmed Wednesday on Twitter that The Witcher team is developing the anime movie.
The Witcher showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich and writer Beau De Mayo are attached to the project, along with Studio Mir, a South Korean animation studio known for the Nickelodeon series The Legend of Korra.
"The rumors are true, a new Witcher story is in the works! The anime film, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, will take us back to a new threat facing the Continent. Brought to you by the Witcher team @LHissrich and @BeauDeMayo, and Studio Mir the studio behind Legend of Korra," the post reads.
