Netflix has announced that an upcoming Japanese animated Godzilla movie is on its way to the streaming service.
The anime comes from Toho, the creator of the franchise who has released 30 of the 32 total movies including this one and last year’s hit Godzilla Resurgence (or Shin Godzilla), in collaboration with Polygon Pictures. The plan is to release the film on Netflix globally after an initial theatrical run in Japan.
Kobun Shizuno (Knights of Sidonia, Detective Conan) and Hiroyuki Seshita (AJIN: Demi-Human, BLAME!) direct the movie, with anime writer Gen Urobuchi (Psycho-Pass, Madoka Magika) having penned the screenplay.
The voice cast for the anime includes Yuki Kaji (Attack on Titan, AJIN: Demi-Human), Takahiro Sakurai (AJIN: Demi-Human, BLAME!), Tomokazu Sugita (Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure), Junichi Suwabe (Nodame Cantabile, Prince of Tennis), Kana Hanazawa (BLAME!, Psycho-Pass), and Mamoru Miyano (AJIN: Demi-Human, The Seven Deadly Sins).
You can expect to see the movie sometime later this year.
