Netflix's Eden, an upcoming robot anime series, drops its first trailer.
Ahead of its May 27 premiere, Netflix released a full-length Eden trailer on YouTube in English and Japanese. Eden's trailer introduces audiences to the futuristic city of Eden -- a robot-led world solely inhabited entirely by A.I. -- and the show's protagonist Sara, a human who mysteriously awakens from stasis and whose existence ends up questioning the entire nature of Eden.
The four-part anime series will be directed by Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood director Yasuhiro Irie and is the first Japanese anime that's completely owned by Netflix.
Eden's English voice cast includes Batwoman's Ruby Rose as protagonist Sara, Doctor Who's David Tennant and Mandalorian star Rosario Dawson as Sara's guardian robots E92 and A37, JP Karliak (Boss Baby) as S566 or "Uncle Joe", Cassandra Lee Morris (Persona 5, Toradora!) as Zurich and Julie Nathanson (Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay, Far Cry 5) as the AI Genève. How I Met Your Mother alum Neil Patrick Harris will also star as the AI Zero.
The Japanese voice cast will star Marika Kōno (In Another World with My Smartphone, Kaguya-sama: Love Is War) as Sara. Kōno will be joined by Kentaro Ito (Bleach, Naruto) and Kyoko Hikami (Princess Nine, Monster) as E92 and A37, Tarusuke Shingaki (My Hero Academia, Noblesse) as S566, Yūki Kuwahara (Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest, Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid) as Zurich, Yuko Kaida (Snow White with the Red Hair, Ikkitousen) as Genève and Kōichi Yamadera (Cowboy Bebop, Dragon Ball Super) as Zero.
Netflix recently revealed several other core members of Eden's creative team. Justin Leach will produce the series, alongside anime studios Qubic Pictures and CGCG. Kimiki Ueno (Carole and Tuesday, The Royal Tutor) will produce the screenplay. Toshihiro Kawamoto (Wolf's Rain, Cowboy Bebop) and Christophe Ferreira (BUTA, Napping Princess) will co-create the character and concept designs, with newcomer Clover Xie serving as the background art director. Australian-based composer Kevin Penkin, who has composed soundtracks for anime like Tower of God, the ongoing The Rising of the Shield Hero and the recently announced second season of Made in Abyss, will score the series.
