Gamera: Rebirth – New Netflix Anime Announced


The official Twitter account for Netflix Japan has confirmed that new project based on Gamera is now in the works, with the name of the project being Gamera: Rebirth. Netflix has yet to confirm whether or not the new project is going to be a movie or a TV series, but as the teaser visual was also released by the official YouTube channel of Kadokawa alongside Netflix, fans are speculating that it may be an anime adaptation of the giant fire-breathing turtle kaiju.

The legendary kaiju monster has appeared in several Japanese movie projects after it first appeared in the 1965 movie Gamera, the Giant Monster. Gamera was created by Masaichi Nagata, Hidemasa Nagata, Noriaki Yuasa, and Yonejiro Saito as a competitor to the Godzilla franchise. Despite being considered a cheap rip-off of the Godzilla films, Gamera movies performed extremely well at the Japanese Box Office.


The last movie of the franchise was Gamera the Brave, which served as the 12th project and the second reboot of the franchise. It was released back in 2006, and since then, no new Gamera projects have been announced. But now Netflix has finally confirmed the upcoming Gamera project with a new teaser and a key visual.
