Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie, known as Street Fighter II Movie (ストリートファイター II MOVIE Sutorīto Faitā Tsū Mūbī) in Japan and Australia, is a 1994 anime film adaptation of the Street Fighter II fighting game written by Kenichi Imai, directed by Gisaburō Sugii and animated by Group TAC.

The film, originally released in Japan on August 8, 1994, was released theatrically in the United Kingdom, France, and Spain, and was adapted into English in dubbed and subtitled format by Animaze for Manga Entertainment. Following the film's release, Group TAC later produced a loose adaptation of the Street Fighter II game, the anime series Street Fighter II V.

Synopsis

Shadowlaw, an organized crime syndicate that deals in drugs and weapons all over the world, is becoming a global threat to all democratic governments on earth, reaching levels of international terrorism that is increasingly worrying for world stability.

An investigation by Interpol, led by Chun-Li and Guile, aims to uncover the paramilitary base from which the terrorist attacks of Shadowlaw are organized, to later eliminate it in a surprise attack. Ryu, one of the best martial arts fighters in the world, is called on to carry out this mission. Unfortunately, his best friend, Ken, has been captured by Shadowlaw and becomes their powerful and faithful servant.

Notes

  • Two versions of the English dub were created; a tamer PG-13 version, and an unrated cut which contains, among other things, a slightly more revealing shower scene featuring Chun-Li that is still censored from the original Japanese version.
    • Though various releases would be less censored, the full uncut version would not be released in North America until Discotek Media's 2016 Blu-Ray release. Prior to that, the Australian release by Madman Entertainment was the only version of the movie that was completely uncut outside Japan.
  • For the original English release, an alternative/grunge-oriented music score was composed by Cory Lerios and John D'Andrea. The dub would later be released with the original Japanese score reinstated on the 2006 Uncut, Uncensored, Unleashed DVD.
  • Most of the English cast would later reprise their roles for Street Fighter II V, with some exceptions.
    • Stephen Apostolina replaces Eddie Frierson as Ken.
    • Randy McPherson replaces Bryan Cranston as Fei-Long.
    • Steve Blum and Kevin Seymour replace Michael Sorich as Dhalsim and Zangief respectively.
