About Ultraman: Rising


Ultraman: Rising is directed and written by Emmy winner Shannon Tindle, known for works such as Kubo and the Two Strings (2016), co-directed by John Aoshima and co-written by Marc Haimes. With CG animation created by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), renowned for its contributions to well-known masterpieces such as Star Wars and Jurassic Park, they create a new story with the iconic and everlasting hero Ultraman, beloved globally for over half a century since his debut in 1966, with the theme of “parent” and “family”. The music of Grammy-winning superstar EDM producer Diplo, as well as Oliver Tree and Alicia Creti, further enhances Ultraman’s fights. The film features key casts including Christopher Sean, Gedde Watanabe, Tamlyn Tomita, Keone Young, and Julia Harriman.




Baseball superstar Ken Sato has another identity - Ultraman, the Earth-defending superhero. To fulfill that duty, he returns to his home country of Japan to prepare for his match but finds his peaceful life disrupted by the sudden appearance of a powerful kaiju Gigantron.
Ken transforms into Ultraman to confront the kaiju’s increasingly intensified attacks but soon finds himself in an unthought situation of being forced to take care of a kaiju baby - the child of his nemesis. Now as the father of the kaiju baby, whom he names “Emi”, Ken needs to confront his relationship with his estranged father and discover what it truly means to be Ultraman.
