posted on by Rai Kelly
Sentai Filmworks announced on Tuesday that its North American premiere of the No Game, No Life Zero film at the Los Angeles Anime Film Festival on September 15 will be English-dubbed. An English-subtitled screening will also take place at the festival on September 16.
Dub cast members — including Scott Gibbs, Caitlynn French, Shannon Emerick, and Kira Vincent-Davis —are returning from the television anime. Kyle Colby Jones (Akame ga Kill!, Parasyte -the maxim-, Food Wars! Girls und Panzer der Film) is directing the English ADR production.
A wider release is slated for fall 2017 in the United States. Azoland Pictures is handling theatrical distribution. The film opened in Japan on July 15.
Sentai Filmworks describes the story:
Six thousand years before Sora and Shiro were even a blink in the history of Disboard, war consumed the land, tearing apart the heavens, destroying stars, and even threatening to wipe out the human race. Amid the chaos and destruction, a young man named Riku leads humanity toward the tomorrow his heart believed in. One day, in the ruins of an Elf city, he meets Shuvi, a female exiled "Ex-machina" android who asks him to teach her what it means to have a human heart.
Atsuko Ishizuka returned from the television anime series to direct the film at Madhouse. Jukki Hanada also returned to handle the script, and Satoshi Tasaki designed the characters. Kazuhiro Hocchi drew the concept art. Eiji Iwase returned as art director, and Tsukasa Ohir reprised the background art setting role. However, Yoshiaki Fujisawa composed the music.
