The upcoming original Netflix anime Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas has revealed the rest of its voice cast! This spinoff to director Zack Snyder’s “zombie action heist film” Army of the Dead, set to release on Netflix next year, will act as a prequel to the film.
Army of the Dead, originally conceived as a standalone sequel to 2004’s Dawn of the Dead, follows a team of mercenaries who plot a Las Vegas casino heist in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, will center around Dave Bautista’s character, Scott, and serve as his origin story.
The anime series chronicles the origin story of Scott (Dave Bautista) and his rescue crew during the initial fall of Vegas as they confront the mysterious source of the zombie outbreak.
Bautista, along with Ana De La Reguera, Tig Notaro, Omari Hardwick and Ella Purnell, will all reprise their roles for the anime.

Jay Oliva (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns and upcoming Netflix Original Anime Series Trese) will act as showrunner; he will also direct 2 episodes of the series.
Animation will be done by Meduzarts Animation Studio.
Netflix has really stepped up its game with anime content in the past couple of years, including popular titles such as Devilman Crybaby, Violet Evergarden, and Beastars. But they have also done a great job producing original anime as well, like Seis Manos.
I’m not a huge fan of zombies, but this is an interesting concept, and I’m intrigued!
