If it's an AU I guess they can cast another voice actress to replace McGlynn for the dub.
Why not just keep McGlynn? She's already played Kusanagi in both the movie (sequel) and TV continuities, as did the original Japanese actress Atsuko Tanaka. So why not continue to use her for a third continuity?
I'm guessing he doesn't like her performance (which was terrible in the first movie, to be fair). But I'm cool with whatever casting choices are made as long as the dub is not licensed by Sentai Filmworks. Their dubs are mediocre at best and rage inducing at worst and feature horrible casting and directing in both cases.

McGlynn did not play the Major in the first movie's English dub; Mimi Woods did. The first movie had an almost completely different dub cast than the group that's done subsequent GitS productions; the only performers in common were Richard Epcar as Batou and William Knight as Aramaki. The original film's dub was quite poor in a lot of respects.

Re: Ghost in the Shell Arise: 2013

I too prefer Stand Alone Complex(the anime series) to the movie and that's probably because I thought SAC was more like the manga (which I read years before the first movie came out). It had a lot more comedic elements to it (the manga) that wasn't really present in the movie version, but did show up in SAC.

The movie version is very good and explores themes more deeply, but while I enjoyed it I always felt like it took the characters and some of the themes from the manga, but was of a completely different scope.

Looks like yet another alternate universe.
Well, after the abysmal second movie universe flick, that's probably for the better.
Do you mean Innocence?

I thought that it was fantastic, although besides GITS 2.0 and some Highlander flick, it is the only other anime film I have been able to stand watching all the way through. Both GITS movies really hit the spot for me as a massive scifi-noir fan.

Re: Ghost in the Shell Arise: 2013

Being serious for a second, I'm cautiously optimistic about this project.

The director Kazuchika Kise has worked on both the original and the Innocence sequel of the Oshii version of GITS, and he worked on Kamiyama's Solid State Society movie, so at least he knows the material.

The writer Tow Ubukata wrote the brilliant Le Chevalier D'Eon, and most recently for Western audiences has been behind the Mardock Scramble movies. They're worth a rent if you want to see his idea of cyberpunk. I've seen the first Mardock Scramble and it's pretty much the best anime cyberpunk since Stand Alone Complex.

Well it looks like a prequel to Stand Alone Complex to me. So i'm in. I tire of re-imaginations. They're still doing scene homages to iconic scenes in the original GITS which is tiring also since they've already done that in the previous series. Knock it off.

Re: Ghost in the Shell Arise: 2013

Here's some more info about it. You're right that it's a prequel which should be interesting. I enjoyed the war flashback in the second season of SAC and was always sort of curious about this section of the Major's past so I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Still I have to say I'm extremely disappointed that this project will only be 4 OVAs/movies...I was hoping for a full TV series.

It's an alternate universe prequel from what I've heard.

That's odd, must be your browser, because even when I log out and refresh the page I can still view the page. Fixed it anyhow though.
