Is there a chance for it to become a seasonal anime?
It depends. If the reception is good, maybe the studio would be willing to make new films set in the same world. If I'm not mistaken, the studio is rather young and if we're talking hypothetically, Burn the Witch could, given good reception, become a franchise the studio is known for.

The official site has been updated a bit. It includes the link to the one-shot on Jump+. https://burn-the-witch-anime.com/en/

I'm not sure the voice actors have previously been shared. Thank you, B. Haddrell for the scan below:

Character
Voice Actor
Noel Niihashi​
Yuina Yamada​
Ninny Spangcole​
Asami Tano​
Balgo Ywain Parks​
Shinba Tsuchiya​
Billy Banx Jr.​
Hiroaki Hirata​
Osushi-chan​
Rie Hikisaka​

Sanji's voice actor will voice Billy Banx Jr! He's also Gennai and the narrator in Digimon Adventure as well as Otose's husband in Gintama!

I didn't expect that blue would be the dominant colour for Bruno. Roy B. Dipper looks the best in my opinion (at least they didn't trace the manga panels in his case).

The artstyle reminds me of Avatar: The Legend of Korra.

Yeah it really does look like Korra, you're right. Gotta admit, they all look great but Dipper looks extra distinguished with gold and navy being his primary colours here. Wasn't expecting blue out of Bruno either, all I saw was red and orange when chapter 1 spoilers dropped the other week :p

Korra had clean and sharp characters and almost painting-like scenery.

I can't wait to see Roy in action; hopefully he's elegantly badass like Harry Hart in Kingsman. And I blame Bazz-B and Renji for seeing nothing but red and orange for Bruno.

According to this Tweet, Kubo was quite involved with the production of the Burn the Witch anime: https://mobile.twitter.com/WSJ_manga/status/1309195971180531717
Drawing and sharing different storyboards, drawing manuscripts and sharing as many designs as possible, checking all the scripts, confirming all lines and scenes during the whole production, participating in auditions and recordings from start to finish, I have cooperated in everything I could until I was satisfied. Thanks to the love and tact the director, deputy director, and staff have put, it has become an amazing work. I hope lots of people enjoy watching it.
I don't know if this image is from WSJ or not:

It looks like he was a bit more involved in the anime production indeed. Checking the scripts and participating in the pre-production process is pretty standard from what little I know; however, judging by the way Kubo worded it, it may be that his involvement was bigger than the norm.

Previous post (deleted to avoid double-posting): I think that a selected number of people attending the theatrical release of the Burn the Witch will receive T-shirts:

Found this extra animated scenes on Bleach Reddit, apparently from some sort of a live-stream. It contains heavy spoilers because it contains material from all 4 chapters, so watch at your own risk if you haven't read the manga.
