The Japanese production company Toei unveiled "Rebellions," a 133-second demo movie that was produced at Toei Digital Center's Tsukun Laboratory, on its YouTube Channel on Friday. Koichi Sakamoto, the action director for much of the Power Rangers franchise, directed this short. The cast includes Nao Nagasawa (Ninpū Sentai Hurricaneger), Minami Tsukui (Kamen Rider Den-O), and Saaya Irie (Hell Girl, Kyo no Gononi).
Toshiyuki Kimura (Casshern) was a concept designer, and Yasushi Nirasawa (Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, Hellboy) designed characters. Dango Takeda (Kamen Rider, Gantz, Mamoru Oshii's Assault Girls) designed the costumes, while Atsushi Takeuchi (Appleseed, Ghost in the Shell, Yukikaze) designed the motorcycle.
The video ends with a pitch for investing partners to develop the property further.
