More details are here for the anime film adaptation of Nahoko Uehashi’s (Moribito) Shika no O fantasy novel series, AKA The Deer King. Shika no O: Yuna to Yakusoku no Tabi (The Deer King: Yuna and the Promised Journey) was originally slated to premiere on September 18, 2020, but various circumstances caused a delay. Its new date has been revealed as September 10, 2021.

The news was accompanied by a fresh 30-second teaser trailer, which also takes the opportunity to introduce the anime film’s three main characters and the voices behind them. Shinichi Tsutsumi (live-action Gintama‘s Katakuriko Matsudaira) plays the lonely warrior Van, who survives a deadly and mysterious disease; Ryoma Takeuchi (Kamen Rider Drive) plays the genius doctor in search of a cure; and Anne (Miss Hokusai‘s Oei) plays a skilled female warrior named Sae, who is attempting to track down Van.
