Fennic Shand from The MandalorianSpike from Cowboy Bebop, and Sylens from Horizon Zero Dawn joins forces for a new universe-jumping adventure. Not one that connects these franchises, unfortunately, but for a short called Parallel Man: Infinite Pursuit. It’s about a super soldier trying to save the universe with the ability to jump between parallel lands, and we have an exclusive clip.
From the mind of filmmaker Jeffrey Morris, Parallel man makes its debut on Gunpowder & Sky’s sci-fi label Dust March 28th. John Cho (Cowboy Bebop, Star Trek) is the voice of the series’ main character, Commander Nick Morgan, a rogue soldier who crosses the multiverse in hopes of rescuing it. Nick is assisted by an advanced AI named Atlas, voiced by Lance Reddick (John Wick, The Wire, Horizon), and together they will meet Major Mackenzie Cartwright, a mercenary tasked with chasing Morgan. She is voiced by Ming-Na Wen (The Book of Boba Fett, Agents of SHIELD).
Pretty stacked cast for an animated short film, but if you watch this exclusive clip, you get an idea of why. This looks like a ton of fun.
Not in that clip is Wen’s character, Mackenzie. Mackenzie is not only an elite soldier in search of Morgan, she is the president’s daughter, which sounds like an asset, but which may end up being a commitment. Here is an exclusive look at her.
And just because it’s fun, here are some pictures of the stars Parallel man‘s Jeffrey Morris.
Parallel man is one of two shorts Dust premieres from Morgan’s company, FutureDude Entertainment. It debuts on March 28 and then on April 18 there is a live-action card called Oceanus: First act. It takes place in the near future, where communication between man and whale has been resolved, and takes place in a majestic underwater town. It has Sharif Atkins (IS)Bruce Davison (X men)Megan Dodds (For all mankind), and Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) . Learn more about Dust here.
