The Northerner was one of the most epic films left to us by 2022, and arguably Robert Eggers’ biggest production to date, who in this case collaborates with none other than the Vinland saga, an anime based on Makoto’s work. Yukimura. It’s just a few days before the premiere of the second season.
Seeing The Northerner in theaters, this mind-boggling tale of Scandinavian history, must have been Thorfinn fans who couldn’t help but notice the similarities between the director’s film The Witch and the Lighthouse and the anime produced by Wit Studio and now in the hands of MAPPA with its season 2 In other words, at the end both stories take place in the world of the Vikings and the mythology of the people of the north, so you can say that they go very hand in hand on the other hand, this is enough to see both seemingly rather distant works combined in an official joint video.
On the occasion of the upcoming premiere of the second season, this official crossover between Vinland Saga and The Northman was released, and in the video, the main characters of the anime comment on the story of Amleth, the protagonist of the film Eggers, and how this origin story is so familiar to them, they even go so far, that they say that the plot of a feature film imitates them in some way.
This certainly makes us wonder if Robert Eggers was based on the anime to implement The Northerner, though it’s unlikely that he was. The only thing we can say is that the idea of this collaboration is great and very successful, as without a doubt, watching the Viking film again before the premiere of the second season of Vinland Saga will be a great option.
