Before the film's release, there was some minor controversy in Western nations regarding American actress Scarlett Johansson being cast to play the lead role, as some viewed it as "whitewashing" given the series roots in Japan. Ironically, most Japanese audiences supported her casting, and even Mamoru Oshii, who directed the cult-classic original 1995 anime version of the story spoke out in support of the film and stated "I believe having Scarlett play Motoko was the best possible casting for this movie."
