As of right now, news has come out that Netflix, the streaming giant is all set to create another spinoff of its popular series, The Witcher. No, it is not the Witcher: Blood Origin series we are talking about. It is The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. To fans’ surprise, this is actually an animated feature movie that portrays the early years when Vesemir used to be young.
Well, since the first announcement about this spinoff film, Netflix has kept mum about how far they are in the process of creating this project. This has left the mews media platforms with a task to speculate about everything. A variety of people think that this anime film is going to air sometime before the release of The Witcher season 2.
The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf: Will Kim Bodina be the voice cast for Vesemir, or Theo James?
Although, this has created various expectations about who is going to voice the character of Vesemir. Previously, it was revealed by Netflix that Kim Bodina, the star from Killing Eve, has been cast for the role of Vesmir for the second installment of The Witcher. It is known that Bodnia has started with the process of forming along with Henry Cavill as The Witcher. We also have Freya Allan enacting the character of Ciri. Yasen Atour is set to do the part of Coen. Paul Bullion will reprise the role of Lambert.
Last, but not least, we have an actor, Thue Rasmussen who is going to enact the character of Eskel. This was 5he event before the production came to a potential halt because of the rising concerns over the Corona Virus pandemic. Well, as we all know that Vesemir is the main character of the film, it is possible that Bodnia is going to reprise his role in Nightmare of the Wolf too.
That being discussed, there is still another option that is as likely to happen like this one. We know how Nightmare of the Wolf is going to employ a young Vesemir to tell the story of how he started his journey as a Witcher. Thus, there is still a strong possibility that Netflix might have searched for another younger actor to voice this role. Well, this still leaves one more possibility. Kim Bodine might be on this anime film and actually narrate his character’s origin story. I mean, why not?
If Netflix follows this format of storytelling, then Kim Bodina is bound to appear once again. Now, now, in the first installment of The Witcher, we had Theo James from Divergent who lent his voice to the young Vesemir. This all happened in a quick flashback sequence. James happened to have a voice acting background in a variety of productions that are done by Netflix. This includes him doing some recurring roles in the animated show, that is, Castlevania as well as The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
