The Rick and Morty universe is expanding as we speak, and it is coming up with a new addition to the franchise. The upcoming Rick and Morty – The Anime is set to release as a standalone addition to the franchise, with fans still awaiting the return of the show for another season. The expansion of the franchise has to do with the changing roles within the organization and the need for the show to retain its original popularity.
Therefore, the upcoming anime adaptation can be seen as a move that has been aimed at dealing with the changing dynamics of functionality within and outside the organization.
What can we expect from Rick and Morty – The Anime?
Like all other Rick and Morty seasons, this anime will also follow the adventures of Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith within and outside the Smith household. The anime adaptation will serve as a standalone series, which has been confirmed. But, the exact plot details of the show are still largely unknown to us.
The show was directed to use a similar sense of humor and themes as its parent series, and it was given to Takashi Hano after reviewing five anime shorts directed by him. The basic premise would be similar to the adventures of Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith which we have seen earlier, but apart from that, very little is known about the exact definitive aspects.
Rick and Morty – The Anime and its cast
Takashi Sano, the man who directed Psycho-Pass, will be returning to direct Rick and Morty – The Anime. The primary cast of the series is as under:
- Yohei Tadano as Rick Sanchez
- Keisuke Chiba as Morty Smith
- Manabu Muraji as Jerry Smith
- Akiha Matsui as Summer Smith
- Jun Irie as Beth Smith
Moreover, there will be several other guest stars and the list is as under:
- Manabu Muraji as AI Driver and Hologram Transvestite
- Yuki Minami as Hologram Girl
- Hinata Tadokoro, Daiki Kobayashi, Hodaka Mieno, Nanami Yamashita, Kazuya Saji as Future Beings
The diverse and talented cast members will surely add greatly to the show. They will be intrinsic to the new venture, as an anime adaptation will be a breakthrough for the franchise and also the entire industry at large.
Where can we watch Rick and Morty – The Anime?
Rick and Morty – The Anime will be a standalone series that was first announced on April 12, 2023. It can be expected to release sometime around the latter part of 2023. While there haven’t been any official announcements regarding the same, it is hopeful that the producers will soon release information and we will get a proper idea of the events.
Rick and Morty – The Anime can be streamed on Adult Swim and HBO Max with a paid subscription, and the show will be available on these platforms worldwide.
While Takashi Sano brings his own Rick and Morty to life, we can wait and imagine how beautifully crafted this show is going to be. With the chaotic world of the show combined with Sano’s ethereal and calm dream, we can expect this show to be peculiar and extraordinarily powerful.
