In a somewhat surprising move Netflix will provide an English dub for the upcoming anime, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. Two days ago Netflix Japan announced the worldwide release date for the first animated Godzilla feature--It also released a new Japanese trailer for the film.
Today Netflix updated their Godzilla page with a dubbed version of the third theatrical trailer. You can get a taste of the English dub by clicking here.
There is currently no word on who the English cast is. The film will also be available to watch in Japanese with various subtitle options depending on the region. (For those who find the English dub particularly cringe-worthy.)
Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters stars the voice talents of Mamoru Miyano (Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Ultraman Zero: The Movie), Takahiro Sakurai (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans), Kana Hanazawa (.hack//Quantum), Yuki Kaji (Attack on Titan), Tomokazu Sugita (Attack on Titan), Junichi Suwabe (Space Dandy), Kenta Miyake (Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn), Kenyu Horiuchi (Bleach, One Piece), Kazuhiro Yamaji (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children) and Kazuya Nakai (Dragon Ball Super).
