 2 Shout Outs! [?]
This was a great movie overall, but it just wasn't the same without the original voice actors for Wolfwood, Milly, and Meryl.

@PurpleWarrior13 Nah I believe Funimation did their best to keep the original voice actors. Either Johnny was the only available VA from the original show or the other VAs had no interest to reprise their old character which forced Zach Bolton (ADR Director and Line Producer of the movie) to recast those characters.

@Sharkssmart "Either Johnny was the only available VA from the original show or the other VAs had no interest to reprise their old character which forced Zach Bolton (ADR Director and Line Producer of the movie) to recast those characters."

Not true. Here's what Jeff Nimoy had to say about it:

"Actually I would have loved to dub the Wolfwood movie, but Funimation dubbed it already without me. They called me and wanted me to fly myself out to Texas from Los Angeles and put myself up in a hotel while they paid me less than the original series paid. I would have lost money on the deal. Then when I asked for more money, they went ahead and replaced me. Pretty cheap, huh? I guess they don't care about the fans. Sorry, guys, I would have loved to play Wolfwood again, but remember, I'll always be the original! -Jeff"

Also, Dorothy Fahn apparently had a bad experience with Funimation in regards to reprising Meryl as well. Funimation could have easily done a better job on this movie.

@PsychicVoiceSpy Sorry for the late reply.

You might be right. Funimation was willing to offer them an opportunity to reprise their old characters. But then again, they most likely worked on a budget. Maybe Johnny could travel to Dallas a lot easier because he was raised in Garland (30 minutes away from Dallas) and his folks most likely still lives there.

Just thinking of solutions.

Latest Reason:

"A decent movie that captures the spirit of the original series fairly well, but the recasted main characters prevent this from being great."
