New Ghost in the Shell Project is a Movie Series

Picture 1The new Ghost in the Shell anime project, Ghost in the Shell: Arise, will consist of four, 50 minute episodes that will run theatrically in Japan starting June 22, 2013.

During a live steaming event held yesterday morning, the staff of the series also revealed the cast list,  which is headlined by voice actor / singer Maaya Sakamoto.  The cast is completely different from previous GitS anime productions, suggesting that the new work is, in fact, a reboot.


The first episode, ‘Ghost Pain’ will be released on Blu Ray in Japan on July 26.  No word yet on English subtitles, but Bandai Visual, the company releasing it, has a good track-record for including them.

Here’s the trailer, which also premiered during the streaming event:
