posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Netflix Japan began streaming a Japanese-dubbed trailer on Wednesday for the Castlevania animated series. The show is titled Akumajō Dracula: Castlevania (Devil Castle Dracula Castlevania) in Japan. The series will premiere on Netflix worldwide on Friday, and will have four 30-minute episodes.
The show's English cast stars:
- Graham McTavish as Dracula
- Richard Armitage as Trevor Belmont
- James Callis as Alucard
- Alejandra Reynoso as Sypha Belnades
- Emily Swallow as Lisa Tepes
- Matt Frewer as The Bishop
- Tony Amendola as The Elder
The series will follow "the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself."
Producer Adi Shankar announced in 2015 that he was working with Fred Seibert and Kevin Kolde of Frederator Studios on an animated mini-series based on Konami's Castlevania game series. In particular, the story would be based on the 1989 NES/Famicom game Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse. The game is set in 1476, and Dracula has Europe under his grip. Trevor Belmont journeys in an attempt to defeat Dracula, and enlists the sorceress Sypha Belnades, the pirate Grant Danasty, and Dracula's own half-vampire son, Alucard.
