Netflix has released the trailer for the upcoming anime film “Bright: Samurai Soul” which will arrive on October 12th. The spin-off is set based on the world of the live-action film “Bright” and set in Japan between the end of the shogunate and Meiji era. The film tells the story of Izou, a Ronin, and Raiden, an orc, who work to bring a young elf girl and the wand she carries to the land of the elves in the north…

The English voice cast features Simu Liu in the role of Izou, a one-eyed wandering samurai; Fred Mancuso as the orc Raiden, who attempts to redeem himself from a life of thievery; and Yuzu Harada as the young elf Sonya.

In the time between the fall of the Shogunate and the rise of the Meiji era, a powerful bright light emitted from a wand brings an end to the long Shogunate period to avoid further bloodshed as Japan begins to shift toward a new era. Amid these circumstances, a one-eyed wandering ronin named Izou, who has lost his reason to live, and Raiden, an orc who detests murder and hopes to leave a life of thievery behind, separately meet a young elf girl named Sonya around the same time. Together, they go on a journey along the Tokaido road to bring her and the wand she holds safely to the land of the elves in the north. Standing in their path is the mysterious organization Inferni, which aims to obtain the wand and revive the Dark Lord, who intends to rule all of creation. Inferni also uses the new Meiji government in its attempt to steal the wand from Izou, Raiden and Sonya. Traveling along the Tokaido road from Kyoto to Yokohama, Izou and Raiden begin their journey to protect the wand.
