After years of inactivity, the Godzilla franchise has become very productive lately. 2014 gave us Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, which will spawn a sequel Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019. A Japanese version by Toho called Shin Godzilla came out last year, winning Best Picture at the Japanese Academy Awards. And 2020 will give us the long-awaited crossover remake Godzilla vs. King Kong. On top of all that, we’re getting an anime film.
According to the site Bloody Disgusting, Netflix Japan announced the new animated film via Twitter. Co-Produced by Toho and Polygon Pictures. The film will be scripted by Gen Urobuchi and co-directed by Hiroyuki Seshita and Kôbun Shizuno, along with a voice actor cast including Yuuki Kaji, Takahiro Sakurai, Mamoru Miyano, Junichi Suwabe, Kana Hanazawa and Tomokazu Sugita.
The film will stream globally on Netflix, as well as playing in select theaters, later in 2017.
