    SciFi Japan is pleased to share -- courtesy of SRS Cinema -- a first look at the cover art for the Blu-ray of Kadokkawa Pictures' THE GREAT YOKAI WAR: GUARDIANS (妖怪大戦争 ガーディアンズ, Yōkai Daisensō Gādianzu, 2021). Right click on the photos to take a closer look at the beautiful painted artwork by Bob Eggleton, the award winning fantasy artist and lifelong kaiju fan.

    THE GREAT YOKAI WAR: GUARDIANS is director Takashi Miike's sequel to his 2005 hit THE GREAT YOKAI WAR, which was itself an update of the Yokai movie trilogy produced by the Daiei Motion Picture Company in the late 1960s.


    In the year 20xx, cities located along the Fossa Magna, a fault runs from north to south across the Japan island, are destroyed by what it appears to be a storm or an earthquake. The route of the destruction points towards Tokyo.

    Meanwhile, in Beijing, Yokai from around the world come together for an international conference  known at the "Yummit". They discover that Yokai monsters formed from ancient underwater fossils have combined into one giant Yokai and are moving toward the Pacific Ocean... an act that could lead to mass destruction. Human beings cannot see them and are therefore unaware of the threat, but the underworld, which cohabits with the human world, is also in danger of being destroyed. The Japanese Yokai are asked to handle the situation and two leaders of that group, Nurarihyon (Nao Omori) and Inugami Gyobui (Takao Osawa), step up to take matters into their own hands.

    The Yokai decide to revive the legendary God of War Bushin to confront the Yokai monsters. However, to bring Bushin back, they will need help from a descendent of the ancient Yokai hunter, Tsuna Watanabe. They find a schoolboy named Kei (Kokoro Terada) and his younger brother Dai (Rei Inomata). The two youngsters have often played at tests of courage, but now destiny has chosen them for a great adventure...
