Check out the trailer of the first movie here!
“ Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Taika-hen (Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire Arc) and Rurouni Kenshin: Densetsu no Saigo-hen (Rurouni Kenshin: The End of a Legend Arc) will be adaptations of the original manga’s Kyoto arc.

Main cast members Takeru Sato (Kenshin Himura), Emi Takei (Kaoru Kamiya), Munetaka Aoki (Sanosuke Sagara), Yuu Aoi (Megumi Takani) and Yosuke Eguchi (Hajime Saito) will also be reprising their roles.

I found another website that listed out the rest of the actors and actress involved in the next 2 movies but I couldn’t find the information on WarnerBro’s official website.
But anyway, I am so excited to watch it and I can’t wait for summer 2014! Let’s hope the film don’t let us down!
