The synopsis of the film “Discover a powerful new threat to the continent”, In addition to developing this story, it will be interesting to see whether the protagonists of the series will also play a role in the anime film. There are no further details on this at the moment.
The idea of making a film about this series is in fact not new. It was the initial approach of the producers, although Netflix ultimately decided to extend the eight novels in a series rather than compressing everything into a single film.
Squeezing ‘The Witcher’
According to Netflix, the series was seen by a total of 76 million people (or households) in the first month. These figures, as spectacular as they may appear, must be picked up with tweezers. Netflix is based on its new viewing metric, which counts as viewing if the user has seen a minimum of two minutes of the work. That is, if you open a series and watch two minutes of an episode for a Netflix you already count as a viewer of the series.
What cannot be denied in any case is that ‘The Witcher’ is One of the best Netflix titles. Taking advantage of the push, this animated film will also be published, of which there is unfortunately no release date. Maybe between a premiere of a new season in the series? producers let see this idea. At the moment the next season of ‘The Witcher’ is expected until 2021.
