The Witcher Animated Short: Geralt vs Griffin
If you are fan of either The Witcher or Samurai Jack (heck, why not both?), then you will love the new animated short fan film titled SAMURAI WITCHER: Geralt vs. The Griffin.” The short takes the White Wolf himself, the Witcher Geralt on a scary adventure as he takes on a monstrous beast deep in the woods. The fan film emulates Genndy Tartakovsky’s iconic animation style, with clean, angular and highly stylized visual designs. You can watch it below:
Surprisingly, The Witcher’s bleak tone meshes well with Samurai Jack’s hyperkinetic visuals, providing a satisfying experience as Geralt employs everything in his disposal in order to dispose of a terrifying beast. The short is directed by Jason Dewey and Liam McKeown, with the latter also serving as animator.
The fan short is very timely, as recent announcements have confirmed that Netflix is currently deep in pre-production for a live action series adaptation of The Witcher.
