Announced way back in 2018, Crunchyroll, Adult Swim and Alcon Television Group are joining forces for the animated series Blade Runner: Black Lotus, and we’ve got an update today.
Deadline reports that Jessica Henwick (Underwater, pictured above) will lead the upcoming project’s voice cast, with the cast also including the following roster of names…
Arisa Shida, Will Yun Lee, Shinshu Fuji, Samira Wiley, Takako Honda, Brian Cox, Wes Bentley, Josh Duhamel, Taiten Kusunoki, Peyton List, Yoshiko Sakakibara, Stephen Root, Hochu Otsuka, Barkhad Abdi, Takayuki Kinba, Gregg Henry, Masane Tsukayama, Henry Czerny, Akio Nojima, Jason Spisak and Kazuki Yao.
Henwick is voicing Elle, “a female replicant created for a secret and unknown purpose.”
Deadline also notes, “Adult Swim will air the English language version on the network’s anime programming block Toonami and Crunchyroll will stream the series in Japanese with subtitles. Both will offer the series to viewers worldwide outside of Asia.”
The 30-min episodes will be produced by Sola Digital and directed by Shinji Aramaki (“Appleseed”) and Kenji Kamiyama (“Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex”).
