The Japanese film website Cinema Today began streaming the 61-second trailer for the Ultraman Saga film on Friday. The trailer features seven members of the all-female idol group AKB48 as Earth Defense Force's "Team U" and three Ultraman heroes, including Breakerz musician DAIGO as Ultraman Zero.
Sayaka Akimoto plays Team U's leader Anna at the beginning of the trailer. The other AKB48 members in the film are Haruka Shimada, Yuka Masuda, Sae Miyazawa, Ayaka Umeda, Kana Kobayashi, and Sumire Satō. Takeshi Tsuruno plays Ultraman Dyna, while Taiyō Sugiura plays Ultraman Cosmos.
Ultraman Saga's story begins when a mysterious alien invades the Earth. Ultraman Zero, Ultraman Dyna, and Ultraman Cosmos come from outer space and join forces with humankind to restore the peace.
Ultraman Saga will open in theaters across Japan on March 24 in 2D, and for the first time in the franchise, in stereoscopic 3D.
