Aniplex of America announced the English dub cast for its upcoming release of the Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic television anime series at Anime Weekend Atlanta on Saturday. The cast is as follows:

Aladdin: Erica Mendez
Alibaba: Erik Kimerer
Morgiana: Cristina Vee
Sinbad: Matthew Mercer
Judar: Todd Haberkorn

Shinobu Ohtaka's original manga re-imagines tales from the classic story One Thousand and One Nights (also known as Arabian Nights). Director Koji Masunari (Read or Die, Welcome to THE SPACE SHOW) helmed the 25-episode first season at A-1 Pictures, and is returning to direct the second season. Toshifumi Akai (Kokoro Connect, Sound of the Sky) serves as the character designer and chief animation director, and Hiroyuki Yoshino (Accel World, Guilty Crown, My-HiME) is handling the scripts. Shiro Sagisu (Bleach, Evangelion, Berserk films) is composing the music.

Anime Weekend Atlanta hosted the dub premiere of the anime on Saturday before Viz Media's Neon Alley service premieres the series in October. The anime premiered in Japan last October, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. Aniplex of America announced last October that it had licensed the series.

The second season, Magi: The Kingdom of Magic, will premiere in Japan on October 6. Aniplex of America announced this month that it will stream the series on Daisuki, Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Aniplex Channel starting in October.
