What is Ultraman: Rising about?

Ultraman: Rising is directed by Shannon Tindle and John Aoshima from a screenplay written by Tindle and Marc Haimes. The film will feature the voices of Christopher Sean (You, Hawaii Five-O), Gedde Watanabe (Sixteen Candles), Tamlyn Tomita (Avatar: The Last Airbender), Keone Young (Men in Black 3, Star Wars Rebels), and Julia Harriman (Camp Rock). It is produced by Tom Knott and Lisa M. Poole.

“I first came across the [Ultraman] show when I was probably four or five years old. My dad and I would watch it on Sunday afternoons. I remember seeing the character for the first time. I was already a big comic book fan at this point, but Ultraman was so different, not just in his appearance, but in his powers than any of the other characters that I’d grown up with to that point. I was immediately engaged,” said director Shannon Tindle about the film to ComingSoon.

“You see the science team and the bright orange uniforms and Ultraman and his red and silver. It’s not a suit. He’s an alien, so it’s his body. I was obsessed with it when I was a kid, but I had no connection. I didn’t know how big the character was in the rest of the world. As things go when you’re a kid, you’re interested, and then you move on to other things. When I moved to Los Angeles in the nineties, I was re-exposed to it. At that time, Ultraman Tiga was the show that I had seen. Then I really started to become obsessed with the character again. That’s when the idea started to form.”
