Netflix has announced a new animated film in the Witcher franchise titled The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep. The movie is based on Witcher author Andrzej Sapkowski’s short story “A Little Sacrifice” and it follows Geralt of Rivia as he’s hired to investigate a series of attacks. There’s a cool teaser trailer that you can watch below.
In the story, “Geralt of Rivia, a mutated monster hunter, is hired to investigate a series of attacks in a seaside village and finds himself drawn into a centuries-old conflict between humans and merpeople. He must count on friends -- old and new -- to solve the mystery before the hostilities between the two kingdoms escalate into all-out war.”
Doug Cockle, the iconic voice of the Witcher video games, is returning to voice Geralt of Rivia. He’ll be joined by Joey Batey and Anya Chalotra who are returning from the live-action The Witcher series to voice Jaskier and Yennefer, respectively with Christina Wren joining the cast to voice Essi Daven.
Cockle said in a statement: “I am super excited to announce my return to the world of the Witcher voicing Geralt of Rivia once again, but this time in the upcoming animated feature The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep. It’s been an honour to work with Studio Mir and Netflix on this new animated film and I’m thrilled to be able to share this next chapter of the White Wolf’s journey with fans of the Witcher universe. Mire taedh aen stráede!”
The Witcher: Sirens of Deep is set to release globally in late 2024. Renowned Studio MIR (The Legend of Korra and Netflix's Voltron: Legendary Defender) is producing the animation for the film.
