The new Code Geass feature film landed back in February in Japan with Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection and we learned just after that that the North American plans are shaping up. Funimation revealed back in December that they’re intent on bringing it out theatrically here and they’ve set with a May 5th, 2019 debut in subtitled form while the May 7th and 8th, 2019 will have the dubbed showing for it. As that’s now getting closer, we’ve got our first dubbed trailer for the project to get a taste of the cast coming back for one more performance.
The English cast for this includes Johnny Yong Bosch as Lelouch vi Britannia, Kate Higgins as C.C., Yuri Lowenthal as Suzaku Kururugi, Christopher R. Sabat as Bitool, Elizabeth Maxwell as Shamna, Gabe Kunda as Qujappat, Jared GIlmore as Shalio, Karen Strassman as Kallen Kozuki, Kim Mai Guest as Sayoko Shinozaki, Liam O’Brien as Lloyd Asplund, Patrick Seitz as Forgner, Rebecca Forstadt as Nunnally vi Britannia, and Rich Sommer as Shesthaal.
The project brings back a lot of familiar names with Goro Taniguchi directing based on the screenplay by Ichiro Okouchi. Working from CLAMP’s original character designs, Takahiro Kimura will be handling that area while Sunrise is on the animation production. The project comes after wrapping up the recap film trilogy this past May and we should have most of the (surviving) cast return for this edition of it.
The previously announced new cast includes Ayumu Murase as Shario, Nobunaga Shimazaki as Shesutaaru, Wataru Takagi as Bituru, Keiko Toda as Shamuna, Akio Ohtsuka as Fōgunaa, and Kenjiro Tsuda as Kujapatto
The original TV series premiere in 2006 with a sequel run in 2008. A spinoff OVA series began in 2012 that ran for several years with Akito the Exiled.
Plot Concept: The film takes place two years after Zero Requiem.
