Studio Mir will animate the film, who is know for The Legend of Korra iand Voltron: Legendary Defender for Netflix.
Netflix teased the new show as, “The world of The Witcher expands in this anime film that explores a powerful new threat facing the Continent.”

The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, played by Cavill, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.
