The movie version of Sand Land by Akira Toriyama now has a new trailer online.

The video, which was shared on the film's official Twitter account, highlights the legendary mangaka's distinctive fusion of comedy and action. It also reveals a number of the voice actors for Sand Land, including Mutsumi Tamura (My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!) who will play the title character Beelzebub alongside Kazuhiro Yamaji (Attack on Titan), Ch (Log Horizon), Satoshi Tsuruoka (Psycho-Pass), General Are, and Nobuo Tobita (One-Punch Man) as Rao and Thief, respectively.


The film is being produced by Sunrise, the animation studio behind classics such as Cowboy Bebop, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, and many entries in the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise. Sand Land is directed by Toshihisa Yokoshima (Doraemon the Movie: Nobita's New Dinosaur), with screenplay by Hayashi Mori (Cells at Work! Code Black) and music by Ygo Kanno (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable).

About Sand Land

From May to August 2000, Toriyama's Sand Land manga was published in Shueisha's Weekly Shnen Jump, resulting in a total of 14 chapters that were collected into a single book. The plot follows the demon prince Beelzebub and his traveling companion, a small-town sheriff named Rao, as they search for the legendary Phantom Lake on a desert planet where both humans and demons suffer from a severe lack of water.


On August 18, Sand Land will be released in Japanese cinemas, but as of this writing, no date has been set for its release in North America or elsewhere in the world. Fans of Toriyama can, however, take advantage of a variety of ways to appreciate the mangaka's distinctive inventions and art. The most prominent release was a trailer for a new game in the Bandai Namco and Toei Animation video game franchise Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi. Players can engage in combat as fan favorites Son Goku and Vegeta in these games, which are based on Toriyama's well-liked and successful Dragon Ball manga. Many people were surprised when Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 4 was announced because the previous mainline installment of the series premiered in 2007.

The Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie, for which Toriyama penned the script, will also be depicted in the ongoing Dragon Ball Super manga. Although the manga portrays the tale in its own distinct manner, fans of the movie should expect some shocks.
