Watch the First Full Trailer for Netflix’s Divisive ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Series

In its 3DCG anime series Ghost in the Shell, Netflix has released the new trailer SAC 2045 and revealed that it will be launching in April 2020. The video shows that the original ghost cast, including Atsushi Nakanaka (Motoko Kusanagi), Akio Takatsuka (Bato), and Hirota Takaji (Togusa) will go back to the Shell SAC series. It will be written by Nobuko Toda, who has been working together with Kazuma Jinnouchi in the show Metal Gear Solid.

The 3DCG animation style — the first for a Ghost in the Shell production — has proved to be divisive, with more thumbs-down than thumbs-up votes on the original teaser trailer. That could be because it varies dramatically from the original hand-drawn anime style, to put it generously.

What folks can be more excited about is the return of the original anime cast and the fact that it will also be directed by Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) and Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed). That’s key because the films have always been just as much about the dystopic storytelling as the animation style.
