Gen:Lock, the brand-new animated series from Rooster Teeth(RWBY), is on the way. And RT has uploaded an exclusive new clip from the upcoming show, scheduled to premiere this January.
This clip shows off the impressive voice talent RT managed to line up for this project: in this one scene alone, you can hear Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther) as Julian Chase, Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) as Cammie Maccloud, Kōichi Yamadera as Kazu Iida, Golshifteh Farahani as Yasamin “Yaz” Madrani, Asia Kate Dillon as Valentina “Val” Romanyszyn, Blaine Gibson as Sinclair, and David Tennant (Doctor Who) as Dr. Rufus Weller aka Doc.
Other cast members, not present in this clip, include Dakota Fanning as Miranda Worth, Lindsay Jones (voice of Ruby Rose in “RWBY”) as Razzle, Miles Luna (voice of Jaune Arc in “RWBY”) as Miguel “Migas” Garza, Haddock (voice of Roman Torchwick in “RWBY”) as Leon, and Chad James (voice of Boomstick in “DEATH BATTLE”) as Jodie.
Gen:Lock launches January 2019 exclusively on the Rooster Teeth app ($4.99 a month on iOS, Android, Xbox One and Apple TV). It’s one of several projects RT has in development, including a sixth season of RWBY.
In this clip, the newest gen:LOCK recruits arrive at the Vanguard military base “the Anvil,” ready to settle in, until Doctor Weller explains there’s a few more tests to endure before they’re fully accepted into the program…
