No Whitewashing for Sword Art Online

Netflix’s upcoming Sword Art online live action adaptation will feature Asian actors in lead roles, abating fears of whitewashing that has plagued Western adaptations in the past, while secondary roles will include a mix cast; which is understandable considering the premise that players come from all over the world. Here is what producer Laeta Kalogridis had to say specifically:

SAO is an essentially Japanese property, in which Kirito and Asuna, who are the two leads, are Japanese. In the television show, Kirito and Asuna will be played by Asian actors. Whether or not that was the question underneath your question, it’s not a conversation about whitewashing. When I sold it to Netflix, we were all on the same page. They are not interested in whitewashing it, and I am not interested in whitewashing it.

In terms of the secondary characters, because the game is meant to be global, the way it’s presented in the anime and in the light novels, there are secondary characters that clearly are from other parts of the world, like Klein and Agil. To me, it’s very obvious when you watch it that you’re meant to take that this game spans the globe
