Nice. Seems to be a few VAs in the top billing? (Maybe I’m wrong?) I wonder what this film will look like if not every aspect is live action actors.

Shoji Kawamori directed some action scenes that were made in CG across a few Ultraman shows in the 00's. They haven't done that much in recent years though so who knows.

Apparently Shinji Higuchi revealed Shin Ultraman has ALREADY wrapped filming and is now entering post-production.
I'm curious to see what a Hideaki Anno script directed by someone else will feel like. I guess Anno's next major involvement in the film will be in tightening the edit.

Apple CEO Tim Cook posted a tweet showing he met with Shinji Higuchi recently.
He specifically mentions SHIN ULTRAMAN.
Honestly, Cook’s willingness to mention the film makes me think Apple TV+ might have already worked out a deal with Toho to stream the film (and other Toho project) outside Japan.

I wonder how extensive the effects work for this film must be if they’ve already finished shooting, shown some early work to Tim Cook and the film still won’t be ready until 2021?

Wow, that is unexpected. Hopefully makes the film more easily watchable outside Japan.

While it's not impossible due to the absolute blitz from Tsuburaya recently the blu rays getting released in America are through Mill Creek which is a division of Sony right? Although Marvel is also publishing a new Ultraman comic book in January and that's Disney. Tsuburaya could just be spreading it all out.

This is the Ultraman design the film is going with it looks like:

Seems the film mostly avoided issues and is progressing well.

Does anyone think if Thrice Upon A Time gets delayed to next year that we might see end up getting Shin Ultraman first?

Wasn't the original plan that once Eva was released Anno would help out in some fashion on finishing Ultraman? I wonder if he's multi-tasking things at the moment.

I don't think so. I think everything is getting delayed, even movies years out.

With how quickly JP seems to be opening back up for business I think Evangelion will still come out first. I'm pretty excited for Shin Ultraman and am wondering how lore heavy it will be as well. Heck, it's entirely possible to take something from the original and turn it into some deep lore like the example of the Antlar alien race worshipping a dogu statue that ended up being Ultraman Noa decades later who was shown travelling through time. I realize Shin Godzilla didn't have a bunch of lore but with the Ultra's being aliens I can't help but wonder if he'll just be an invader or something more. Even if it's completely divorced from all the Ultra series it might end up having an effect on the series like Ultraman the First leading into Ultraman Nexus. I just want it to come out!
