Classic kaiju hero Gamera is getting ready to return, and while we don’t know any of the details about the project, Netflix went ahead and started teasing GAMERA -Rebirth-. In addition to teaser visuals and a teaser trailer, the news came along with plans to debut a new figure at TAMASHII NATION 2022 this weekend, complete with a special newspaper that will be distributed at the venue.
Check out the teaser promo and visuals:
Shusuke Kaneko, who directed the Heisei trilogy of Gamera films from 1995 to 1999, shared the following message:
When I proposed my own concept for Gamera in the Reiwa era, KADOKAWA was already working on a new project. The content seemed to make sense to me, so I have high expectations for this project as well. So, as a baseball commentator with experience as a Gamera team manager, I will continue to support it until it wins the championship and I take the plate again.
Gamera first made his debut through Daiei (now KADOKAWA) with Daikaiju Gamera in 1965. We’ll have to wait and see what comes of this new project.
