The intro was good. I like how short is was but you still got a good idea of what Afro was all about. I'm glad I have the DVD. I wonder when the second season's coming on DVD...I'll have to think about this some more.

Spike TV's critically-acclaimed, funktastic anime series “Afro Samurai” returns with an original movie event set to premiere on Sunday, January 25, 2009 from 10:00 PM – Midnight, ET/PT. “Afro Samurai: Resurrection” stars Academy Award®-nominated actor Samuel L. Jackson opposite Emmy Award®-nominated actress Lucy Liu. Award winning artist The RZA once again provides the original score. “Afro Samurai: Resurrection” is produced by Japanese studio GONZO in association/partnership with GDH K.K. and FUNimation Entertainment.

“Afro Samurai: Resurrection” is based on the original art and story telling of manga artist Takashi Okazaki, of a black samurai's quest for revenge and justice for his murdered father. Samuel L. Jackson (“The Spirit”), who also serves as an executive producer, reprises his role as the uncompromising hero, Afro and his motor-mouthed sidekick Ninja Ninja. When his father's body is stolen from its grave, Afro is forced to pick up his sword and wreak bloody vengeance against an army of deadly foes lead by a sadistic mastermind.

Lucy Liu will give voice to Sio, a beautiful, seductive and sadistic mastermind plotting to destroy Afro Samurai. Liu is the star of several Hollywood blockbuster action-adventure films including “Charlie's Angels” and “Kill Bill” and has joined the cast of the ABC drama “Dirty Sexy Money.” Liu can currently be heard as Master Viper in the animated film “Kung Fu Panda.”

Additional casting includes Mark Hamill as Bin, Sio's manservant and protector and Yuri Lowenthal as Kuma, the teddy bear-headed warrior from the original “Afro Samurai” series. Best known as the young hero Luke Skywalker in the original “Star Wars” trilogy, Mark Hamill has had a successful career on Broadway, as a voice actor in both animation and video games and as a comic book creator. Yuri Lowenthal is the voice of Sauske in the hit children's anime series and cultural phenomenon “Naruto.”
