Netflix’s New Godzilla Anime Film Reveals Behind the Scenes Concept Art (VIDEO)
Gloated as the “first-ever high quality animation” by Netflix press release, a Japanese animated film of the most iconic kaiju (“giant monster”) Godzilla will be making its way to the recognized streaming service as an original. It will see an international premiere in 190 different countries following the initial launch in Japan. It’s pretty much as close as you can get to a triple-A film with the slew of talented directors, screenplay writers, and down to the animation studio. Familiar titles like AJIN: Demi-Human, Knights of Sidonia, BLAME!, Psycho-Pass, and Madoka Magica may ring a bell or two in your head! Most of all, Toho animation is working with these people, and you may very well have watched most of the anime led by this company – Akame ga Kill, Haikyuu!!, Boku no Hero Academia, and many more. Suffice to say, there is big money and skill going into this Godzilla anime.
Unless you speak Japanese, it will be difficult to understand the behind-the-scenes look of the concept art with clarity. However, some useful information and guesses can be taken from the video. Not only do you get to glimpse at some of the concept art for the film’s production, viewers can see some of the ideas that went behind the storyboard planning, voice actor experience and commentary, as well as producer and director commentary. More than likely, they discuss the expectations and work that went into the movie. Take a look at the video for yourself below:
The Godzilla anime takes place “twenty thousand years” into the future where humans have researched and acquired advance military and scientific discovery. The very life on Earth is threatened by kaiju, but the one that poses the biggest threat to humanity is Godzilla itself. A special, elite force of people are released to challenge the extinction of mankind in 2048. The main protagonist characters are Haruo Sakaki and Yuko Tani played by Mamoru Miyano and Kana Hanazawa, respectively. There are other voice actors cast for the anime that you may recognize as well, including Junichi Suwabe and Takahiro Sakurai. It’s certainly an all-star movie from top to bottom.
