'Sand Land: The Series' Coming to Hulu (And Anime NYC!)


Introducing an Exciting Reimagining and Expansion of the Universe Created by Akira Toriyama and Depicted in the Hit 2023 Movie ‘Sand Land

New Original Series To Be Part of Hulu's
Animayhem Booth at Anime NYC Beginning Nov. 17

November 16, 2023 (Santa Monica, CA)
In spring 2024, audiences are invited to revisit the dry and desolate wasteland of Sand Land in “Sand Land: The Series,” an exhilarating new Japanese anime coming exclusively to Hulu.

In “Sand Land: The Series,” viewers are transported to a world where the water supply is all but dried up, with the small amount remaining controlled by a greedy king. Tired of suffering under the king's rule, Sheriff Rao reaches out to Sand Land's demons for help, and together they set off on a journey to discover the “Legendary Spring”.

An exciting retelling of the hit 2023 “Sand Land” movie, “Sand Land: The Series” will build upon the movie's original universe, telling new stories featuring the beloved Fiend Prince Beelzebub, Sheriff Rao, and Thief.

Based on the popular short story by Akira Toriyama, the creator of “Dragon Ball” and “Dr. Slump,” “Sand Land: The Series” is a collaboration between Sunrise, the anime studio behind “Mobile Suit Gundam” and “Love Live! Series”; anime studio Kamikaze Douga, which has gained attention for POPTEPIC and for creating the title sequence for “JoJo's Bizarre Adventure”; and ANIMA, which specializes in high-quality 3DCG animation.

Starring Mutsumi Tamura as the voice of the Fiend Prince Beelzebub, Kazuhiro Yamaji as the voice of Rao, Chō as the voice of Thief, Satoshi Tsuruoka as the voice of General Are, and Nobuo Tobita as the voice of Supreme Commander Zeu, “Sand Land: The Series” is directed by Toshihisa Yokoshima and is adapted for the screen from Akira Toriyama's original graphic novel by Hayashi Mori.

Hulu will be celebrating “Sand Land: The Series,” as well as several of its most popular Anime titles - Hulu Originals “Undead Unluck” and “Tokyo Revengers,” as well as “Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War” - at this weekend's Anime NYC convention. Attendees who visit the Hulu Animayhem booth will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in these fan-favorite titles with unique photo opportunities and specialty giveaways including a keychain, Animayhem poster, and Hulu green boba tea.
