The most recent addition to the Blade Runner universe has a brand new trailer. Grownup Swim and Crunchyroll launched the brand new trailer for Blade Runner: Black Lotus, the present the networks are co-producing, throughout a particular panel at San Diego Comedian-Con 2021 on Friday.
Black Lotus takes place in Los Angeles, as most Blade Runner tales do, within the 12 months 2032. This locations it in the course of the unique film, which was set in 2019, and the sequel Blade Runner 2049. The sequence follows Elle (Jessica Stanwick), who appears to be a replicant created for a particular objective with particular powers. It appears she is named Black Lotus, and one way or the other escaped the forces that created her. Within the trailer we see her on the run and hunted, presumably by at the very least one Blade Runner, however that’s all of the extra plot it offers away.
The sequence will even embody Brian Cox (Succession), Wes Bentley (The Starvation Video games), Stephen Root (Workplace House), and lots of different recognizable names.
Blade Runner: Black Lotus will run 13 episodes and might be directed by Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) and Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost within the Shell: Stand Alone Advanced). The sequence might be animated by Sola Digital Arts (Ultraman 2019) and produced by Alcon Leisure. In the meantime, Shinichiro Watanabe, the legendary director behind sequence like Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, and Carole & Tuesday, will function a artistic producer on the sequence.
Blade Runner: Black Lotus will air on Grownup Swim and stream on Crunchyroll when it’s launched this fall.
