There’s a whole lot going on in the world of Godzilla at the moment. TOHO’s Shin Godzilla just won the Japanese Academy Award for Best Picture, a sequel to 2014’s film is on the way, and so too is mash-up battle with Kong in 2020; needless to say, it’s a damn good time to be a fan of the King of the Monsters. What else should you be excited about? An animated film is in the works!
Netflix Japan just made the announcement over on Twitter that Polygon Pictures’ upcoming animated film Godzilla will globally stream on Netflix sometime later this year. Directed by Kobun Shizuno and Hiroyuki Seshita, it’ll be the very first anime film in the Godzilla franchise.
In addition to the streaming roll-out, Godzilla will also arrive in select theaters.
The voice cast for the Gen Urobuchi-penned film includes Yuuki Kaji, Takahiro Sakurai, Mamoru Miyano, Junichi Suwabe, Kana Hanazawa and Tomokazu Sugita.
