Three new cast members have been announced for Kingdom 2: Harukanaru Daichi e (“Kingdom 2: To the Ends of the Earth”), an upcoming live-action film based on the epic historical action manga by Yasuhisa Hara about a pair of young men whose fateful meeting will change the course of history in ancient China. The new cast members include:
- Amane Okayama as Wei Ping.
- Takahiro Miura as Wei Dao.
- And Takayuki Hamatsu as Shi Gui.
Funimation currently streams the first Kingdom live-action film, while Crunchyroll and Funimation currently stream the Kingdom TV anime in the United States. Crunchyroll describes the story of Kingdom as follows:
Shin and Hyou are war-orphans in the kingdom of Qin. They dream of proving themselves on the battlefield until the day Hyou is captured by a minister. The boy manages to escape and return to his village, but he is badly injured. Shin then meets a mysterious youth who bears an eerie resemblance to Hyou—a boy who will one day become emperor!
A sequel to the 2019 live-action Kingdom film, Kingdom 2: Harukanaru Daichi e is directed by Shinsuke Sato and stars Kento Yamazaki, Ryo Yoshizawa, Kanna Hashimoto, and Takao Osawa. Kingdom 2: Harukanaru Daichi e is scheduled to hit theaters in Japan during the summer season of 2022.
