‘Babylon 5: The Road Home’ Unveils Exciting Images of Beloved Characters

Exciting news for Babylon 5 fans as a sneak peek into the upcoming animated film, ‘Babylon 5: The Road Home,’ has been unveiled. J. Michael Straczynski, the writer, took to Twitter to share a series of captivating first-look images from the reboot. These images were previously showcased at the Phoenix Fan Fusion convention.

Responding to fans’ inquiries about the animation style used in the #B5animatedmovie, Straczynski wrote, “During the Phoenix Fan Fusion convention, I had the privilege of revealing the first-ever glimpses of the movie, with Warner’s kind permission. Now, I’m thrilled to announce that they have granted us permission to share these images online. So, here we go!” Among the images, one provides a thrilling first look at Zathras, portrayed by Paul Guyet (League of Legends) as a replacement for the late Tim Choate. Zathras, known for his endearing caretaking role for the Great Machine, is seen wearing his iconic brown and white fur coat. Another image offers a detailed glimpse of another crew member, while a third showcases the crew, including Delenn, voiced by Rebecca Riedy (Love, Death, and Robots), taking over the late Mira Furlan’s character. Lastly, the final image unveils the new logo for the film.

The release of these new Babylon 5 images follows the earlier reveal of the first image in May. This animated image portrays the iconic Babylon 5 space station orbiting what appears to be the moon. Released by Warner Bros., it raises questions about how the station survived its destruction in the series finale, titled “Sleeping in Light.” The logline released alongside the image suggests that the movie might explore an alternate reality or timeline, taking viewers on a galactic journey with John Sheridan. Unexpectedly transported through various timelines and alternate realities, Sheridan embarks on a quest to find his way back home. Along the way, he reunites with familiar faces and uncovers profound revelations about the history, purpose, and meaning of the Universe.
