It’s finally happening: Demon Slayer: Mugen Train has now gotten an English dub trailer. Plus, it has even narrowed down the release date a bit, so that’s a plus.
The English dub trailer shows the entire English cast for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba returning to voice their respective roles. Zach Aguilar and Abby Trott will return to voice brother and sister Tanjiro and Nezuko (sort of, if you count her grunts and squeaks to be voices) respectively. Likewise, Aleks Le and Bryce Papenbrook will voice Zenitsu and Inosuke respectively.
Two new actors will also gain prominence in Demon Slayer: Mugen Train. Mark Whitten will voice our flame-wielding hashira Kyojuro Rengoku, and Landon MacDonald will voice Enmu (Lower One): the demon who’s causing this entire mess. Frankly, MacDonald is doing a fantastic job in that trailer. He managed to capture the creepiness of the guy quite well indeed.
So When Will the Demon Slayer Hype Train Get Here Already?!
At the very end of that Demon Slayer: Mugen Train trailer though, Aniplex finally narrowed down the US release date. Sort of. Apparently, the film is “coming early 2021” in both English sub and English dub.
Apparently, even Aniplex isn’t willing to give us an exact date for when they’ll finally release Demon Slayer: Mugen Train in US theaters. Although frankly speaking, a theater release is looking less and less likely. Especially since we have this pesky virus running around ruining large gatherings for us. And what’s a larger and more crowded gathering than an audience in a movie theater?
It’s pretty likely that Aniplex is just waiting for a lull in COVID-19 before releasing Demon Slayer: Mugen Train in the US. After all, home releases alone won’t make the big bucks. They need theaters for those. Maybe we’ll even get that lull soon, before we die of a heart attack over the hype from the film.
Demon Slayer: Mugen Train just got its first English dub trailer. It probably won’t be the last either. All this is just Aniplex building up the hype for when they’ll finally release this long-awaited and very popular anime film sometime in “early 2021”. Let’s hope we can hold in the excitement until then.
