Netflix‘s Ultraman: Rising promises to be one of the more unique entries in the Ultraman franchise. Not least of which because of its premise of the titular hero taking care of a baby kaiju. Don’t believe me? Then why not check out the official teaser trailer from Netflix below, and see for yourself if this is the Ultraman film that’s right for you?

Netflix’s Ultraman: Rising ~ Details

Aww, look at the little baby kaiju!

Netflix is proud to hype up their upcoming Ultraman: Rising film with two things. The official teaser trailer above on YouTube isn’t one of them. That one is three months old. No, what I’m talking about is a new teaser key art for this upcoming Ultraman film from directors Shannon Tindle and John Aoshima, and starring Christopher Sean (You, Hawaii Five-O), Gedde Watanabe (Sixteen Candles), Tamlyn Tomita (Avatar: The Last Airbender), Keone Young (Men in Black 3, Star Wars Rebels), and Julia Harriman (Camp Rock). You can check it out below:

Clearly, this is the ultra-adorable Ultraman story.

And as you can see on that teaser key art, Netflix even has the release date for us. Ultraman: Rising will make its streaming debut on June 14, 2024. As you can guess, you can watch this film only on Netflix, so you need a paid subscription to watch it.

Bonus: Synopsis

That’s not all, folks! Netflix also has an official synopsis for Ultraman: Rising to further amp up the hype. You can also check that out below:

With Tokyo under siege from rising monster attacks, baseball star Ken Sato reluctantly returns home to take on the mantle of Ultraman. But the titanic superhero meets his match when he is forced to adopt a 35-foot-tall, fire-breathing baby kaiju. Sato must rise above his ego to balance work and parenthood while protecting the baby from forces bent on exploiting her for their own dark plans. In partnership with Netflix, Tsuburaya Productions, and Industrial Light & Magic, Ultraman: Rising is written by Shannon Tindle and Marc Haimes, directed by Shannon Tindle, and co-directed by John Aoshima.
