The much-awaited The Witcher anime film from Netflix, The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep, was recently announced and is already making waves in the entertainment industry. The new anime feature film is expected to be a thrilling addition to the already impressive portfolio of The Witcher franchise. This article provides comprehensive coverage of what we know so far about the upcoming feature film.
We Know More About The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep
The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep is a project that had been initially announced at Netflix’s TUDUM conference in September 2021. However, the production was not officially confirmed until Redanian Intelligence, a notable site, unveiled information gleaned from its sources over the past few days.
The latest developments reveal a little more about the upcoming feature film. The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep will be an anime adaptation of a short story by Andrzej Sapkowski, which was omitted from the previous anime movie, The Nightmare of the Wolf. The feature film will take a divergent turn, introducing Geralt as an intermediary between a human lord and a mermaid. Like The Little Mermaid, the mermaid and the lord fall in love while facing the challenge of renouncing attributes of their race to coexist in the same world.
The Little Mermaid in The Witcher Universe?
After the success of The Witcher: The Nightmare of the Wolf, Netflix is riding high on the popularity of The Witcher. The feature film will be based on the short story “An Ounce of Abnegation,” which is part of The Sword of Providence collection.
The story will explore Geralt’s role as an intermediary between a mermaid and a human lord who falls in love with her. The twist is that each must renounce aspects of their race to be together; this mirrors a similar plot to The Little Mermaid. It will be interesting to see how the movie will incorporate the beloved fairy tale into The Witcher world.
Henry Cavill or Liam Hemsworth?
The Witcher: Sirens of the Deep is already in production, and it is slated to hit screens by the end of 2023 or the beginning of 2024. What remains a big question is the casting, particularly Geralt’s voice. There is the possibility of Henry Cavill voicing Geralt. Given that he was still filming for the live-action series when recording for Sirens of the Deep began, it is a possibility. Alternatively, Liam Hemsworth, who replaced Cavill as Geralt, may take over.
The Role of Essential Characters
Finally, Christina Wren, who previously worked alongside Cavill on Man of Steel, will reportedly play the role of Essi Daven, a bard who is friends with Geralt. Joey Batey, who portrays Jaskier in the live-action series, will lend his voice to the character once again for the upcoming feature film.
