Latest TV series in hero franchise just premiered on July 14

The official website for the live-action special-effects hero franchise Ultraman announced on Thursday that an Ultraman X film will open next spring. The Ultraman X television series just premiered in Japan on July 14.

The "Ultraman Festival 2015" event will begin with a special preview on Friday, and the ceremony will announce more details on the Ultraman X film's opening. The event will run from Friday until August 30.

Kensuke Takahashi (Hamatora stage play) stars as the 41st new Ultra Hero Daichi Ōzora in the series, and Kiyotaka Taguchi (Ultraman Ginga S) is returning to direct.

The story takes place in a world where an ultra solar flare has awakened human-shaped beings called "Spark Dolls" from the depths of the Earth. Daichi Ōzora becomes Ultraman X to battle giants, kaiju, and aggressive aliens alongside the special defense team Xio.

The Ultraman Ginga S Kessen! Ultra 10 Yūshi!! film, a follow-up to the 2014 television series Ultraman Ginga S, opened in March.
