Netflix has given the green light to a new Ghost in the Shell anime.
The streaming giant is no stranger to anime, and keeps on investing in bigger and bigger projects. Not only is it about to debut Evangelion in 2019, but it’s also ordered two new anime series based on Altered Carbon and Pacific Rim, and even has a live-action version of popular anime Cowboy Bebop on the way. Now, it’s dropped another major project out of the blue: a new entry in the titan that is the Ghost in the Shell franchise.
We don’t know yet whether it will be a film or a TV series, but what we do know is that it will be called Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 and directed by Appleseed’s Shinji Aramaki, alongside Kenji Kamiyama, who gave us Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. Judging by the brief, but intriguing, tweet published by Netflix announcing the news, it will continue the franchise’s exploration of the true meaning of human consciousness.
Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 will premiere on Netflix in 2020.
