Netflix has some big plans for it’s next project. And we do mean big. One of cinema’s largest, most iconic monsters is returning to the streaming giant. He’ll roar back into action in the all new anime series Godzilla Singular Point. The best part, though, is that everyone’s favorite chonky boi is coming with an entirely new story and cast.
Following the success of its Godzilla anime films, Netflix is bringing back the beloved kaiju for his very own series. But Godzilla Singular Point will not be a continuation of the previous movies that have debuted on the streaming site. The series will not be connected to Planet of the Monsters, City on the Edge of Battle, and The Planet Eater. The show will instead feature an original storyline, along with a brand new cast.
Atsushi Takahashi (Doraemon the Movie 2017: Great Adventure in the Antarctic Kachi Kochi) will direct. From Netflix’s official announcement, the show’s creative team also includes:
“Kan Sawada, composer for countless Doraemon films and series such as Yowamushi Pedal, Japanese science-fiction novelist Toh Enjoe making his TV debut as editor and writer for the series, Kazue Kato creator of Blue Exorcist and the hit comic currently serialized in Jump Square will serve as the character designer, and animator Eiji Yamamori from Studio Ghibli films including Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away and The Wind Rises will do the Kaiju design.”
The anime studio bones (My Hero Academia) will produce the series in partnership with studio Orange (Beastars, Land of the Lustrous). The show will combine “hand-drawn and CG animation styles.” Netflix provided some early artwork for the seemingly large cast of characters. We already have some guesses as to which ones we’ll root for, and which ones we’ll be okay watching Godzilla step on.
We don’t trust that guy in a suit. We hope Godzilla feels the same way. Godzilla Singular Point is set to make it’s big, big, big premiere globally on Netflix in 2021.
