Rosario Dawson Joins the “Terminator Zero” Voice Cast

The Netflix anime series “Terminator Zero” brings the franchise back to its horror roots on August 29, and Deadline reports that Rosario Dawson (Death Proof) has signed on.

Rosario Dawson will voice Kokoro, “an advanced AI and Japan’s answer to Skynet.” Deadline notes, “If brought online, Kokoro will be endowed with the same power as Skynet.”

Ann Dowd (Hereditary), André Holland (“Castle Rock”) and Sonoya Mizuno (Civil War) have also joined the show’s voice cast, alongside Timothy Olyphant as the Terminator.

Deadline details, “Dowd will take over as The Prophet, the philosophical guide for the human resistance, a light shepherding survivors in the darkness of the unknown future ahead. Holland is Malcolm Lee, a genius computer programmer and father of three who is haunted by prophetic nightmares of an apocalyptic future. And Sonoya Mizuno will voice Eiko, a resistance fighter sent back in time to stop Malcolm from launching Kokoro.”

“Terminator Zero” comes from Showrunner/Executive Producer/Writer Mattson Tomlin (Project Power, The Batman II). Here’s the official synopsis for the new series…

“2022: A future war has raged for decades between the few human survivors and an endless army of machines. 1997: The AI known as Skynet gained self-awareness and began its war against humanity. Caught between the future and this past is a soldier sent back in time to change the fate of humanity. She arrives in 1997 to protect a scientist named Malcolm Lee who works to launch a new AI system designed to compete with Skynet’s impending attack on humanity. As Malcolm navigates the moral complexities of his creation, he is hunted by an unrelenting assassin from the future which forever alters the fate of his three children.”

The anime hails from Japanese animation studio Production IG (Ghost in the Shell). The eight-episode series is part of the Terminator universe but will center around new characters.
