‘Sand Land: The Series’ Anime Retelling Coming to Hulu

The exciting reimagining and expansion of the universe created by Akira Toriyama and depicted in the hit 2023 movie ‘Sand Land’ streams Spring 2024.

Audiences can soon revisit the dry and desolate wasteland of Sand Land in Sand Land: The Series, an exhilarating new Japanese anime streaming in Spring 2024, only on Hulu.

In Sand Land: The Series, viewers are transported to a world where the water supply is all but dried up, with the small amount remaining controlled by a greedy king. Tired of suffering under the king’s rule, Sheriff Rao reaches out to Sand Land’s demons for help, and together they set off on a journey to discover the ‘Legendary Spring.’

An exciting retelling of the 2023 Sand Land film, the series will build upon the movie’s original universe, telling new stories featuring the beloved Fiend Prince Beelzebub, Sheriff Rao, and Thief.

Based on the popular short story by Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball, Dr. Slump) the project is a collaboration between Sunrise, the anime studio behind Mobile Suit Gundam and Love Live! Series; anime studio Kamikaze Douga, known for POPTEPIC and for creating the title sequence for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure; and ANIMA, which specializes in high-quality 3DCG animation.

Mutsumi Tamura stars as the voice of the Fiend Prince Beelzebub alongside Kazuhiro Yamaji as the voice of Rao; Chō as the voice of Thief; Satoshi Tsuruoka as the voice of General Are; and Nobuo Tobita as the voice of Supreme Commander Zeu. The series is directed by Toshihisa Yokoshima and is adapted for the screen from Akira Toriyama’s original graphic novel by Hayashi Mori.

Hulu will celebrate Sand Land: The Series, as well as several of its most popular anime titles at this weekend’s Anime NYC convention. Attendees who visit the Hulu Animayhem booth will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in fan-favorite titles with unique photo opportunities and specialty giveaways including a keychain, Animayhem poster, and Hulu green boba tea.
