Netflix's Gamera: Rebirth Reveals New Kaiju


Netflix recently brought back one of the iconic giant monsters of all time with the release of the animated series, Skull Island. Joining Kong on the streaming service this year is another colossal creature in Gamera: Rebirth, which promises to feature not just one, but several titans. Netflix has now unveiled a first look at one of the enormous beasts that Gamera will confront later this year, and interestingly, it shares a significant history with the star of the upcoming animated series.

The monstrous creature in question is Guiron, a unique "blade-headed" beast that made its debut in the 1969 film, Gamera vs. Guiron. Guiron stands out as one of the most distinctive-looking monsters ever to emerge from any "monsterverse," resembling a walking eel with a blade adorning its head, setting it apart from the likes of Godzilla or Kong. Guiron's return marks a long-awaited comeback for the kaiju, as it has been absent from the screen for several decades.

Gamera: Rebirth has unveiled an exciting new poster, confirming that Guiron will be among the five kaiju wreaking havoc on the world. While this monstrous universe seems to be separate from the likes of Godzilla or Kong, there's always room for more colossal creatures rampaging through cities.

If you're eager to delve deeper into the upcoming series arriving later this year, here's the official description of Gamera: Rebirth from Netflix: "The last summer. Friends. And Kaiju--. In the summer of 1989, Boko, Joe, and Junichi, all sixth grade elementary school students, were having their last summer vacation. Each of them is worried about their future. Brody, the son of a US military commander, appears before the three of them and steals away the money they have saved together. Boko and his friends are furious and plan a plan to get their money back. As they are about to carry out the plan, the town is threatened. The kaiju Gyaos suddenly attacks Tokyo. The four are petrified in a town ruined by Gyaos. As Gyaos sets its sights on them, a huge kaiju appears. Its name is Gamera. This is the beginning of their "Summer of Kaiju." Kaiju appear one after another, and Gamera fights back despite his wounds. The boys witness the legend."
