Attack on Titan has had live-action stage plays in the past, though the dark anime franchise is set to enter new territory early next year thanks to a musical that will see the Scout Regiment belting out tunes. While the production has yet to reveal the songs that Eren and company will be filling the air with when the play drops in January in Japan, the full cast has been revealed for the heroes that make up Hajime Isayama's brutal series.
While Attack on Titan's manga ended several years ago, bringing to an end the Scout Regiment's journey and their battle against both Marley and Eren Jaeger, MAPPA will be unleashing the final episodes of the anime adaptation next year. While Hajime Isayama left open the possibility that new stories could take place within the anime universe, thanks to the final chapter's director's cut, the mangaka has yet to confirm that either a sequel or spin-off will be released down the line.
Sing Me A Tune, Eren Jaeger
The upcoming production released a new poster that brings together the live-action version of the Survey Corps, promising a familiar story with a far different iteration of how lines are delivered by the heroes and villains alike:
The cast members that have been confirmed so far for the production include Kurumu Okamiya as Eren Jaeger, Sara Tatkatsuki as Mikasa, Eito Konishi as Armin, Yu Fukuzawa as Jean, Kazuaki Yasue as Marco, Tomoya Nakanishi as Connie, Sena as Sasha, Mitsu Murata as Hannes, Takeshi Hayashino as Keith, Masanori Tomita as Dimo, Mimi Maihane as Carla, Mitsuru Karahashi as Grisha, Riona Tatemichi as Hange, Ryo Matsua as Levi, and Takuro Ohno as Captain Erwin.
If you didn't have the chance to catch the first trailer for this new wild musical, you can watch it below, though unfortunately, it doesn't feature any of the songs that the Scout Regiment, or maybe even the Titans, will be singing:
Do you desperately want to see this Attack on Titan Musical hit North America in the future? Do you think this can become popular enough to cover the entirety of the dark anime franchise?
