The May 24th, 2019 release of the Promare film from Studio Trigger in Japan went over well and GKIDS picked up the rights to it with NYAV Post working on the dub as we speak. GKIDS and Fathom Events brought the film out in September for limited engagement showings and then a bit more, which went over well. Now, they’ve set one more run for the film with Promare (Redux) set for a December 8th, 2019 debut where it’ll be in Japanese with English subtitles. That’ll work out great if you’re unable to make it to some of the showings that are still going on at select theaters through next week. The film has made $1.2 million during its North American release so far, according to Box Office Mojo.
In addition to that, they brought out the cast list:
- Billy Kametz as Galo Thymos
- Johnny Yong Bosch as Lio Fotia
- Crispin Freeman as Kray Foresight
- Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld as Aina Ardebit

- Erica Lindbeck as Heris Ardebit
- Yuri Lowenthal as Meis
- Matthew Mercer as Gueira
