“Rick and Morty: The Anime” is written and directed by Sano and is produced for Adult Swim by Sola Entertainment with Jason Demarco and Joseph Chou serving as executive producers. English voice actors include Joe Daniels as Rick and Jerry, Gabriel Regojo as Morty, Donna Bella Litton as Summer and Patricia Duran as Beth. Japanese voice actors include Youhei Tadano, Keisuke Chiba, Akiha Matsui, Manabu Muraji and Takako Fuji.

“Takashi Sano, in addition to being a super-talented director, is also a huge ‘Rick and Morty’ fan,” said Michael Ouweleen, president of Adult Swim. “He’s the perfect person to give us all this alternate version of this amazing show. And the perfect way to launch this series is by doing our favorite thing – drive ridiculous vehicles around and come see all of you in person. Keep an eye out for our Rickmobile and Mortymobile as they cruise across the country and wrack up various toll tickets to celebrate the expansion of the ‘Rick and Morty’ universe.”

The English-language version is set to premiere Aug. 15 at 12 a.m. on Adult Swim, with the subtitled version in Japanese to follow on Aug. 17 at 12 a.m. on Adult Swim’s action/anime programming block, Toonami.
