August 17, 2022

This article is about the Netflix special documentary film Nightmare of the Wolf: Bestiary, including the premise, release date, cast, and trailer.

Netflix continues to expand its library of content from The Witcher. After 2021’s The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, we’ll soon have another companion film to watch in the form of Nightmare of the Wolf: Bestiary, an 11-minute follow-up to last year’s animated feature.

Here’s everything we know about Nightmare of the Wolf: Bestiary:

Nightmare of the Wolf: Bestiary Premise

As Netflix describes it –

“Dig into the dark mythological origins of the many monsters – manticores, wraiths, werewolves, etc. – who stalk “The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf”.

Our opinion on the principle

It sounds very extra. Additional brackets to go along with the main functionality seem a bit too much. Then again, is what Netflix is ​​doing with these ‘companion’ movies different from the old fashioned DVD extras we used to get when more of us bought the movies and TV shows we watched ? Still, if I was someone considering stepping into The Witcher universe, having such a huge range of shorts and spin-offs when the flagship series hasn’t even released its third season would be more than a little intimidating.

The manufacturing team

Information about the production team behind Nightmare of the Wolf: Bestiary is not yet known, however, it doesn’t seem unreasonable to assume that it will largely be retained by the same team that produced The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.

We get it… Netflix takes great pride in their work around The Witcher, and there’s no doubt die-hard fans will love every crumb the streamer puts into the world.
