In the realm of adult animation, “Rick and Morty” has rapidly ascended to the pinnacle, captivating audiences with its unique blend of humor, science fiction, and existential philosophy. The show’s immense popularity has given birth to a plethora of merchandise, video games, and even the revival of McDonald’s Szechuan sauce. Despite facing a few hurdles, such as the departure of co-creator Justin Roiland, the series continues to thrive. This success has paved the way for a new spin-off, “Rick and Morty: The Anime.”

San Diego Comic-Con 2023 is just getting started, but it has already delivered some awesome surprises. One of which is the long-awaited trailer for “Rick and Morty: The Anime,” which looks every bit as vibrant and action-packed as one would hope. Suffice to say, fans are in for a fun new take on the original series and its characters.

The Genesis of “Rick and Morty: The Anime”

The brainchild of Takashi Sano, in collaboration with production powerhouses Studio Deen, Sola Entertainment, and Telecom Animation Film, “Rick and Morty: The Anime” was unveiled in early 2022. The inception of the series was marked by the release of five pilot shorts that aired between 2020 and 2021. This upcoming show offers a fresh perspective on the lives of alternate universe versions of Rick Sanchez, portrayed by Yōhei Tadano, and his grandson, Morty Smith, voiced by Keisuke Chiba. This iteration of Rick Sanchez is not only a scientist but also a samurai, and together with Morty, they embark on a multitude of adventures across the multiverse.

To stir excitement for “Rick and Morty: The Anime,” Adult Swim has released the first trailer.
