    Tsuburaya Productions has released English and Japanese press release regarding their decision to postpone the Japanese theatrical release of SHIN ULTRAMAN (シン・ウルトラマン, Shin Urutoraman)...

    Regarding the Release Date of SHIN ULTRAMAN

    First, we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to everyone who has suffered from the ongoing effects of the novel coronavirus COVID-19. We would also like to express our gratitude and respect for all of the healthcare and essential workers who even now are responding to the situation. 

    Due to delays in the production schedule caused by COVID-19, we will not be releasing SHIN ULTRAMAN in theaters in the early summer of 2021 as planned and will instead formulate a new release schedule. Our staff members are earnestly working on the production. We hope that you continue to look forward to its release. We will make further announcements about the release schedule on our official website and social media as plans are finalized.

    We thank you for your patience and understanding.
