While we may not get to watch Shin Ultraman, there’s another Ultraman that is being developed that we will get to watch. Last month, Netflix has revealed that it has partnered with Tsuburaya Productions to develop a CG-animated feature film Ultraman.
Unlike the tradition-breaking anime Ultraman on Netflix, this one appears to be true to its origin.
The CG-animated Ultraman will be directed by Shannon Tindle and co-directed by John Aoshima based on a story written by Shannon Tindle and Marc Haimes, with Tom Knott and Lisa Poole assuming the role of producers.
The animated feature film will be jointly produced Tsuburaya Productions and Industrial Light and Magic (ILM). While exciting that there is going to be a proper Ultraman animated movie, it is not clear exactly when it will be ready. However, we do have a synopsis, though. As per Netflix:
“Baseball superstar Ken Sato returns to his home country of Japan to pick up the mantle of Earth-defending superhero Ultraman, but quickly finds more than he bargained for when he’s forced to raise the offspring of his greatest foe, a newborn Kaiju. Struggling to balance the roles of teammate and new father, Ken must confront his own ego, his estranged father, and the conniving Kaiju Defense Force to rise up and discover what it truly means to be Ultraman.”
Also, there is nothing to show except for a teaser art posted with this post. At least we know it will be the traditional Ultraman.
