Ghost in the Shell

The cast from Mamoru Oshii’s animated Ghost in the Shell will reunite for the Japanese-language version of the live-action remake, according to Kotaku. As originally reported by the website Natalie, Akio Otsuka (Batou), Koichi Yamadera (Togusa), and Atsuko Tanaka (Major Motoko Kusanagi) will all reprise their 1995 roles.

Given the remake’s controversial casting choices, the decision to have the original cast return for a dubbed version may appease fans looking for something truer to the source material.

The remake will come out on March 31st, 2017, but it’s not clear yet when the dubbed version will be available.
