Crunchyroll recently announced the English dub cast for Makoto Shinkai’s Suzume no Tojimari film on Tuesday, March 21. Especially exciting is the announcement of Nichole Sakura starring as the titular character, with her previous work in the anime industry coming from starring as Haru in Star Wars: VisionsThe Village Bride.”

While it is an intriguing choice to go with a relatively unknown voice actress for the eponymous protagonist Suzume, there’s surely something Crunchyroll saw in Sakura’s performance. In any case, fans are ecstatic to have the English dub cast finally announced for the film, with a release date already having been confirmed as well.
