Netflix Announces TUDUM Anime Pre-Show With Sailor Moon, Ultraman and More

Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie, the next season of Ultraman and the new anime re-imagining Bright: Samurai Soul will headline the anime segment of Netflix's TUDUM event.

On Sept. 25, Netflix will host a celebration of its various exclusive shows and movies with 145 of its creators, which will be streamed on the company's official YouTube channel. Several of the streaming giant's exclusive anime offerings will be highlighted during this event, including a special Sailor Moon Eternal panel that will bring together several of the voice actors who have portrayed the series central heroine, Usagi Tsukino, throughout the series' many international localizations, including the character's original Japanese voice actor Kotono Mitsuishi and Stephanie Sheh, who voices Usagi in the current English dub.

Yashahime and Tokyo Ghoul voice actor Ryohei Kimura will join the celebration to discuss the highly-anticipated next season of the Ultraman anime, where Kimura plays the role of the central protagonist Shinjiro Hayata. Netflix is promising to reveal new details about the second season of the show, including a new visual from the 2022 series.

The upcoming Bright: Samurai Soul will also be featured at the event. The new anime is a spin-off of the 2017 Netflix original movie Bright, which starred Will Smith and Joel Edgerton. Set in a world where humans live side-by-side with various fantasy creatures such as orcs and fairies, the anime spin-off moves the series' setting from modern-day Los Angeles to feudal Japan. The anime's voice cast is led by Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' Simu Liu, and the movie will be directed Kyohei Ishiguro, who previously worked on the tear-jerking music drama Your Lie In April, which is also available for streaming through Netflix.

Netflix also previously announced that it will reveal the new opening for its live-action Cowboy Bebop series. The show will feature new music from Yoko Kanno, who composed the original anime's iconic jazz-influenced score, and has also worked on a variety of other anime series, including Macross Plus and Turn A Gundam.

In addition to its new movies and seasons, Netflix will also host panels for several shows that are already available for streaming, such as the Sanrio workplace comedy Aggretsuko and the cat-focused fantasy movie A Whisker Away. Of course, the streaming company will also highlight its selection of non-anime titles at the event, including The Witcher, Stranger Things, and Cobra Kai.

The anime panels will kick-off the TUDUM event and will begin at 8:00AM EST on Sept. 25.
