    Netflix has announced their CG-animated ULTRAMAN feature film -- first announced back in May 2021 -- will debut on the streaming service in 2024. Produced in partnership with Tsuburaya Productions, the movie is co-directed by Shannon Tindle (THE CROODS, KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS) and John Aoshima (GRAVITY FALLS, DUCKTALES). This is a separate project from Netflix's ULTRAMAN (ウルトラマン, Urutoraman, 2019) anime series which will release its third and final season on March 11th.



    Netflix’s ULTRAMAN follows baseball superstar Ken Sato as he returns to his home country of Japan to pick up the mantle of Earth-defending superhero Ultraman. He soon finds more than he bargained for when he’s forced to raise the offspring of his greatest foe. Ken must go on a heroic journey, balancing parenthood, his estranged father, and the relentless Kaiju Defense Force to rise beyond his ego and discover what it truly means to be Ultraman.
