It appears that the Japanese dub of the upcoming Ghost in the Shell live-action film is in good hands. The best hands actually.
Indeed, the original Ghost in the Shell anime voice actors will reprise their roles for the Japanese language dub. Akio Otsuka returns as Batou, Koichi Yamadera as Togusa and Atsuko Tanaka as Scarlett Johansson’s The Major.
This should be welcome news for worried fans. On that note, Ostuka said something about the film that might further ease your mind:
“There were many scenes that were done just like they were in the anime, and I was happy to see that the filmmakers have such an obvious respect for the source material.”
