Netflix has revealed the final trailer, key art and launch date for Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045, which brings together Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki as they present their vision of the year 2045.
Netflix original anime series Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 is launching on the streaming service on April 23, 2020.
Created by Masamune Shirow, the sequel of the acclaimed Ghost in the Shell SAC series has come back as a full 3D CG anime series.
Directors Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex), Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) and SOLA DIGITAL ARTS are collaborating once again following Ultraman. This is the first Ghost in the Shell series to be brought to fans with a double director.
In 2045, the world has been thrown into a state of systematic “sustainable war,” but the threat of human extinction at the hands of AI hasn’t yet pervaded the public consciousness.
Former members of Public Security Section 9, including full-body cyborg Major Motoko Kusanagi, are working as hired mercenaries when mysterious beings known as “post humans” begin to emerge.
The world’s superpowers are trying to come to grips with the threat, and so Section 9 is reorganized.
