The voice cast for the recently announced Babylon 5 animated film has been released, and it featured some of the original members from the franchise.
Bruce Boxleitner returns as John Sheridan, Claudia Christian as Susan Ivanova, Peter Jurasik as Londo Mollari, Bill Mumy as Lennier, Tracy Scoggins as Elizabeth Lochley and Patricia Tallman as Lyta Alexander.

Creator J. Michael Straczynski announced the film on Twitter last week, and described it as “raucous,” “heartfelt,” and “nonstop,” and called it a “love letter to the fans.”
Straczynski wrote the film and executive produces. Matt Peters (Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons) will direct, and Rick Morales serves as supervising producer. Sam Register is the executive producer on the project.
Babylon 5 started out as a film that was released on TV in 1993.
It told the story of Babylon 5, a five mile long space station that acts as neutral ground for aliens with the backdrop of war.
It got strong ratings, so Warner Bros. ordered a TV show that spanned five seasons and 110 episodes.
There have been several other TV films, comics and novels that expanded the world.
This list also includes the spinoff series called Crusade, a 1999 TV show set five years after Babylon 5.
Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment are aiming for a summer release for the film.
