Khara's Live-Action Shin Ultraman Film Delayed
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Studio Khara's new Shin Ultraman (New Ultraman) film announced on Friday that the film is delayed from its previously planned early summer timeframe due to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. The staff will reveal a new timeframe at a later date.
TOHO is streaming a new video for the film.
The opening ceremony for the "Tsuburaya Convention 2019" event debuted the first image of the Shin Ultraman in December 2019. In that image below, the titular Ultraman is not wearing a color timer.

A draft of the script was completed on February 5, 2019, and Anno is focusing on the project after completing Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 (Shin Evangelion Gekijō-ban :||), which opened in Japan on March 8 after multiple delays. TOHO will distribute Shin Ultraman.
