Disney+ Unveils Cast for Phoenix: Eden17
The series is set for release on 13 September exclusively on Disney+, starring famed voice actors Rie Miyazawa, Yosuke Kubozuka, Honoka Yoshida and Issei Ogata.
Singapore - After seven years of production, the eagerly anticipated adaptation of Osamu Tezuka's legendary story ‘Phoenix: Nostalgia’ has been brought to life for global audiences in PHOENIX: EDEN17.
Widely regarded as the "God of Manga" for his incredible stories, this adaptation of Osamu Tezuka's seminal series will take viewers on an extra-terrestrial adventure with Romi and her partner George as they flee earth for a new start on Eden17. While the promise of a utopia-like future beckons, reality hits hard when the pair arrive on the new planet to discover nothing more than a desolate frontier incapable of supporting human life.
Trapped with few options remaining, Romi enters her malfunctioning hibernation pod only to awaken 1,300 years later in a city built by her son Cain's descendants. Treated like a queen by Eden17's inhabitants but desperately alone, Romi resolves to return to earth in the hope of finding solace amongst the stars.
Starring the voices of Rie Miyazawa as Romi; Yosuke Kubozuka as George; Honoka Yoshida as Com, and Issei Oagata as Zudarban, a space merchant, PHOENIX: EDEN17 is directed by director Shojiro Nishimi. STUDIO4℃ serves as producer of the film featuring character design by chief animation director Tatsuzou Nishita and is art directed by Shinji Kimura with music from popular composer Takatsugu Muramatsu.
PHOENIX: EDEN17 is available to stream from 13 September only on Disney+.
