Today Netflix released a new trailer of the upcoming Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 CGI anime series.
The trailer is labeled as “final,” possibly indicating that it’s the last that we’re going to see before the series airs on April 23, 2020.
You can watch it below.
If you’re not familiar with the series, here is how it’s officially described by Netflix.
“After a global financial crisis, the world is engulfed in an AI-driven ‘sustainable war.’ It’s up to Section 9 to counter new forms of cyber threats”
Ghost in the Shell, known in Japanese as “Koukaku Kidoutai”, originated from the manga series by Masamune Shirow, which debuted in Japan in 1989.
It then sparked several movies and anime series, with the first “Ghost in the Shell” film directed by Mamoru Oshii being considered by many in part responsible for popularizing anime in those western countries that missed the TV wave in the eighties.
There have also been several video games on a variety of platforms, but none of them has ever been as popular as the manga or anime productions.
Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 is directed by Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki, featuring character design by Ilya Kishinov.
