J. Michael Straczynski’s fan-favorite sci-fi series is set to make its animated return with this summer’s Babylon-5: The Road Home.
It is the dawn of the 3rd age
Babylon-5: The Road Home seems like it’ll be almost as much a reintroduction to the show’s universe as it is a sequel. Written by creator J. Michael Straczynski, The Road Home will see John Sheridan sent across not just the universe, but through time, as he relives key moments and is cast through alternate realities.
Return to Babylon 5 as the epic interstellar saga continues with The Road Home. Travel across the galaxy with John Sheridan as he unexpectedly finds himself transported through multiple timelines and alternate realities in a quest to find his way back home. Along the way he reunites with some familiar faces, while discovering cosmic new revelations about the history, purpose, and meaning of the Universe.Warner Bros Home Entertainment press release
Recognize some of those voices? If you’re a B5 fan, you should. Bruce Boxleitner is back as John Sheridan, along with Claudia Christian as Susan Ivanova, Peter Jurasik as Londo Mollari, Bill Mumy as Lennier, Tracy Scoggins as Elizabeth Lochley, and Patricia Tallman as Lyta Alexander. And of course, along with the cast members who are back, the movie was written by Straczynski himself.
From there though, it’s a whole new cast, with “Paul Guyet (World of Warcraft) as Zathras and Jeffery Sinclair, Anthony Hansen (God of War) as Michael Garibaldi, Mara Junot (Green Lantern: Beware My Power) as Reporter and Computer Voice, Phil LaMarr (Futurama) as Dr. Stephen Franklin, Piotr Michael (Hogwart’s Legacy) as David Sheridan, Andrew Morgado (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) as G’Kar, and Rebecca Riedy (Magic: The Gathering Arena) as Delenn.”
Directed by Matt Peters, and with Supervising Producer Rick Morales and Executive Producer Sam Register, Babylon-5: The Road Home is set to hit home video on August 15th. Fans will be able to check it out in digital, but also pick up a physical copy, in 4K Ultra HD, and Blu-Ray formats.
