2017’s Netflix hit Bright brought fairies, orcs, wands, and other fantasy elements into the heart of modern Los Angeles and set up a world and mythos that had a lot of potential for expansion. Kyohei Ishiguro’s prequel spin-off Bright: Samurai Soul does exactly that, giving the Bright franchise an anime makeover, and taking it a long way from the contemporary Western setting of the first movie.Set during the early days of Japan’s Edo period, Bright: Samurai Soul focuses on one-eyed samurai Izo (voiced by Yuki Nomura in Japanese, and Shang-Chi star Simu Liu in English), who teams up with an orc named Raiden (Daisuke Irikawa in Japanese, Fred Mancuso in English). They join forces to escort an elf named Sonya (Shion Wakayama in Japanese, Yuzu Harada in English) to join the elves of the north. Bringing together Western fairy tale elements with anime and Japanese history, Bright: Samurai Soul also builds heavily on the world and lore first established in the 2017 movie.
