Studio Khara announced on Thursday that it is producing a Shin Ultraman (New Ultraman) film for release in 2021. Shin Godzilla director Shinji Higuchi and his Higuchi-Gumi team are helming the project, and Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno is in charge of planning and scripts.

A draft of the script was completed on February 5, and Anno will focus on the project after completing Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 (Shin Evangelion Gekijō-ban :||), Studio Khara's new Evangelion film. TOHO will distribute Shin Ultraman.

Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 (Shin Evangelion Gekijō-ban :||) will open in theaters in Japan in June 2020.

Studio Khara had stated in March that dialogue recording had begun for Evangelion: 3.0+1.0. The first three films in the tetralogy, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are [Not] Alone, Evangelion: 2.0 You Can [Not] Advance, and Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo, debuted in 2007, 2009, and 2012 respectively.

The first anime season for the 3D CG anime of Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi's Ultraman manga premiered globally on Netflix on April 1. The series will get a second season.
