Ultraman Just Wrapped Animation on Its Biggest Movie to Date

Ultraman, the renowned Tokusatsu franchise, has been experiencing a remarkable resurgence in recent years, expanding its horizons with various new projects worldwide. Now, Ultraman is taking a significant leap forward by concluding the animation production for its largest movie venture to date. Tsuburaya Productions has been actively expanding the Ultraman franchise in recent years, introducing new projects such as Netflix anime series, the gritty reboot film Shin Ultraman, collaborative comic ventures with major brands, and, intriguingly, an upcoming animated movie in partnership with Netflix.

Initially announced in 2021, fans have eagerly awaited updates on the progress of the new Ultraman animated movie as it approaches its global release on Netflix. In a recent update from Shannon Tindle, the director and co-writer of the upcoming Ultraman film, it has been revealed that the animation phase has been successfully completed. This marks a crucial milestone on the path to its eventual worldwide release through Netflix, and fans can now look forward to its arrival.

Netflix's Ultraman Animated Movie Gets Major Update

Tindle took to Twitter to share a heartfelt statement with fans regarding the completion of animation for Ultraman. He expressed his overwhelming emotions, stating, "We have officially wrapped animation on Ultraman. I can't put into words how emotional this moment is for me. I have had the privilege of working with many of these talented animators since Ollie. The entire team brought their A-game every single day. I want to express my deepest gratitude to Industrial Light & Magic and the incredible Tony Fucile." This milestone signifies a significant leap forward for the new interpretation of Ultraman, especially considering that work on the film likely commenced even before its official announcement.

Directed by Shannon Tindle and co-directed by John Aoshima, the script for the CG animated Ultraman movie was crafted by Tindle and Marc Haimes, in collaboration with Tsuburaya Productions and Industrial Light and Magic. Netflix has provided a tantalizing glimpse into the upcoming Ultraman movie, teasing fans with its potential and setting the stage for an exciting cinematic experience. "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."
