Netflix has just announced that a brand new anime series featuring the King of Monsters will premiere globally in 2021.
Directed by Atsushi Takahashi (Doraemon the Movie 2017: Great Adventure in the Antarctic Kachi Kochi), the upcoming anime series titled Godzilla: Singular Point will feature a brand new cast and a separate storyline that is not connected to previous Godzilla anime films including Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters, Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle and Godzilla: The Planet Eater.
Godzilla: Singular Point will be produced by anime studios Bones (My Hero Academia) and Orange (Beastars, Land of the Lustrous). The new series will combine hand-drawn and CG animation styles.
Blue Exorcist creator Kazue Kato will handle the character designs of the anime series while Studio Ghibli animator Eiji Yamamori will create the design of the Kaiju. They will be joined by Kan Sawada, who composed countless Doraemon films and series such as Yowamushi Pedal and Japanese science-fiction novelist Toh Enjoe.
Apart from the new anime series, the iconic Kaiju will also be squaring off with the King of the Apes next year in the live-action film Godzilla vs. Kong.
