BLADE RUNNER: BLACK LOTUS Anime Announces Full Cast; Check Out The First Trailer

We found out back in 2018 that a new Blade Runner anime series set between the events of Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic & Denis Villeneuve's superb sequel was being developed, and we finally have a trailer.

It's been a while since we had any updates on this one, but Adult Swim and Crunchyroll finally debuted the first trailer and unveiled the full voice cast for Blade Runner: Black Lotus during yesterday's [email protected] panel.

Set between the events of Ridley Scott's seminal sci-fi classic and Denis Villeneuve's acclaimed Blade Runner: 2049, Black Lotus will focus on a new replicant character named Elle (voiced by Jessica Henwick in English and Arisa Shida in Japanese) who was created for some unknown purposes.

Specific plot points are still under wraps, but based on what we can glean from the trailer, Elle will play an integral part in bridging the gap between the films as the Tyrell Corporation crumbles and makes way for the Wallace Corporation.

Blade Runner: Black Lotus is coming.

You can check out the full voice cast along with some character details below.

Elle: a female replicant created for a secret and unknown purpose (Jessica Henwick/Arisa Shida)

Senator Bannister: a politician with strong feelings on replicant production (Gregg Henry/Masane Tsukayama)

Doctor M: a brilliant doctor and professor of medicine (Henry Czerny/Akio Nojima)
