The official website of Toei's upcoming Kamen Rider 1-Gō (Kamen Rider #1) film began streaming a trailer for the film on Wednesday. The trailer features Hiroshi Fujioka playing the role of the original Kamen Rider/Takeshi Hongō.
The film is due out in Japan on March 26.
The film is the first project in Toei's "Superhero Year," which celebrates the 45th anniversary of the Kamen Rider franchise and 40th anniversary of the Super Sentai franchise. Kamen Rider 1-Gō will feature both the original Kamen Rider character, and Kamen Rider Ghost from the currently-airing Kamen Rider Ghost TV series. In the film, a powered-up Kamen Rider protects Mayu, the daughter of his mentor Tachibana Tobei, and fights the Shocker and Nova Shocker organizations.
The Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider: Ghost & Drive Chō Movie Taisen film opened last December. Kamen Rider Ghost, the latest installment in the long-running Kamen Rider special effects series, premiered on TV Asahi last October. Fujioka already reprised his Kamen Rider 1 role in the Heisei Rider vs. Showa Rider: Kamen Rider War feat. Super Sentai film in March 2014.
