Christopher Lloyd, Wallace Shawn, Zelda Williams and more to star in the upcoming King’s Quest revival

The Odd Gentlemen and the newly revived Sierra have revealed the voice cast for their upcoming King’s Quest revival, and it features a few names that are likely to stoke your excitement for the long-anticipated return to the classic adventure game series. The latest developer diary interviews some of the game’s prestigious cast, and gives a sneak peak at their characters in action — it looks like a lot of fun.

Christopher Lloyd, best known for playing Doc Brown in the Back to the Future films, will voice longtime series protagonist Graham, now an elderly king. In flashbacks the young Graham will be played by Josh Keaton, a voice actor who’s worked in many video games and played Peter Parker in The Spectacular Spiderman animated series.

Wallace Shawn (Vanya on 42nd Street, The Princess Bride, and, most importantly, the Grand Nagus of the Ferengi on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) lends his distinctly nebbishy voice to a clever knight named Manny. Zelda Williams, daughter of the late Robin Williams and the voice behind roles like the aspiring dictator Kuvira in The Legend of Korra, will play Amaya Blackstone, a no-nonsense blacksmith. Veteran voice actor Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants, Ice King in Adventure Time) will play the occasionally helpful (but generally self-serving) Merchant of Miracles.

The rest of the cast, as shared by Sierra, includes: Michael Benyaer (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Loretta Devine (Crash), Maggie Elizabeth Jones (We Bought a Zoo), Gideon Emery (Teen Wolf), Jean Gilpin (Frozen), Michael Gough (Batman: Arkham Origins), Andy Pessoa (Transformers Prime), Kevin Michael Richardson (The Cleveland Show), Kath Soucie (Rugrats), Fred Tatasciore (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble), Michael-Leon Wooley (The Princess and the Frog), and Richard White.

The first episode of King’s Quest will come to PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms later this year.
