Netflix has premiered the teaser trailer for its action-packed CG-animated feature “Ultraman: Rising” which will premiere on the service in 2024.

In the film, baseball superstar Ken Sato returns home to Japan to pick up the mantle of Earth-defending superhero Ultraman, he quickly finds more than he bargained for as he’s forced to raise the offspring of his greatest foe, a newborn Kaiju.

Struggling to balance the roles of teammate and new father, Ken must confront his own ego, his estranged father, and the conniving Kaiju Defense Force to rise up and discover what it truly means to be Ultraman.

The project is co-produced by Tsuburaya Productions and Industrial Light & Magic and hails from “Kubo & The Two Strings” animators Shannon Tindle and John Aoshima who direct the film based on characters by Eiji Tsuburaya.

The directors say in a statement: “With this film, we’re merging old and new, combining our love for the original Ultraman with a bold new look drawn from manga, anime, and, of course, the original series. We can’t wait to show you more.”

The clip was revealed as a part of Netflix’s Geeked Week celebrations.
