Netflix's Seven Deadly Sins Shows Off Its Dramatic New Animation Style

Nov 19, 2022 · 15


A new trailer has dropped for The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh Part 1.

The upcoming Netflix movie will tell a completely original story set 14 years after the Kingdom of Liones defeated the Demon Clan, bringing peace to the world. It sees Tristan, the son of Meliodas and Elizabeth, setting off on his own adventure in order to save his mother's life. The trailer promises the return of several fan-favorite characters, including Diane, Ban, King and Gowther, as well as the introduction of many new characters.

While A-1 Pictures produced the original Seven Deadly Sins anime and Studio Deen animated the sequel series and the first two movies in the franchise, studios Marvy Jack (Spice and Wolf II) and Alfred Imageworks are handling the production for Grudge of Edinburgh Part 1. Bob Shirohata (Hetalia - Axis Powers) is directing the film with anime industry veteran Noriyuki Abe, probably best known for his work on Bleach and Yu Yu Hakusho​​​​​​, supervising the project. Rintarou Ikeda, who penned the screenplay for The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed By Light, is writing the script for Grudge of Edinburgh Part 1.

Fans Can Look Forward to Hearing New Voices

While Yūki Kaji will reprise his Meliodas the Dragon's Sin of Wrath, several experienced actors are making their Seven Deadly Sins debut in the upcoming movie. Ayumu Murase (Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale) will voice Tristan, and other new members of the cast include Kazuyuki Okitsu (The Way of the Househusband), Kouki Uchiyama (Violet Evergarden) and Makoto Koichi (The World's Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in a Different World as an Aristocrat).

Nakaba Suzuki's The Seven Deadly Sins manga appeared in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine from October 2012 until March 2020, producing 41 volumes worth of content. Set in a magical world that takes inspiration from the European Middle Ages, the story follows the adventures and tribulations of the titular Sins -- a group of powerful knights. The manga went on to win the shōnen category at the Kodansha Manga Awards in 2015 and has sold over 37 million copies worldwide.

Fans of The Seven Deadly Sins have more to be excited about than just the upcoming debut of Grudge of Edinburgh Part 1. Most notably, McFarlane Toys has released two new figures based on Meliodas and King. Currently available for preorder, both toys retail for $19.99.

The Seven Deadly Sins: Grudge of Edinburgh Part 1 will premiere on Netflix in December.
