Just when we thought that the Demon Slayer: Mugen Train movie is gradually losing its hype in theatres, the franchise teases us with the dubbed version for its North American premiere.
In an anime like Demon Slayer, where sound effects are captivating enough to make us feel that we are in Japan, the voice actors’ role plays a vital part.
On Friday, Aniplex USA started streaming an English dub trailer for the Demon Slayer The Movie: Mugen Train. Both subbed and dubbed versions will be released in North American theatres in early 2021.
The trailer’s content is no different from the Japanese one, and once again we feel the chill through our spines on hearing Enmu speak. We are already aware of the English cast members and it includes:
|Characters||English Cast||Other Works|
|Nezuko Kamado||Abby Trott||Veronica (The Seven Deadly Sins)|
|Tanjirō Kamado||Zach Aguilar||Hiro (DARLING in the FRANXX)|
|Zenitsu Agatsuma||Aleks Le||Kazuya Kinoshita (Rent-A-Girlfriend)|
|Inosuke Hashibiri||Bryce Papenbrook||Eren Jaeger (Attack on Titan)|
|Enmu||Landon McDonald||Rampo Edogawa (Bungo Stray Dogs)|
|Kyōjurō Rengoku||Mark Whitten||Drole (The Seven Deadly Sins)|
Last week, the film dropped to #2 in Japan after topping the charts for 12 consecutive weeks. The reason is Gintama: THE FINAL movie, which took the crown away.
Demon Slayer: Mugen Train became the all-time highest earning movie in Japanese box office history after surpassing Hayao Miyazaki’s 2002 Spirited Away as its final rival.
The film’s success in North America and other continents will determine the fulfilment of this goal since Your Name is still ahead of it with a solid box-office collection of US$357 million.
Demon Slayer has undoubtedly set a new benchmark for all the other anime, and industry sources are already discussing a Demon Slayer sequel, which is expected to release sometime in the middle of 2021.
And if you haven’t watched the film yet, you can check out these interesting facts that you must know before watching the film.
