Twelve Minutes of “Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie” Released to the Public; The Story Starts Here

On June 20, Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie will be released across Japan. This work is in commemoration of the original 1989 series which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. The story takes place after Ghost in the Shell: Arise and will show the origins of Ghost in the Shell. With fans anxiously awaiting the film coming out in just two weeks, a surprise clip was released revealing 12 minutes of the movie.

The released clip is from the beginning of the film. It depicts two sudden occurrences: a hostage situation at the embassy, and the assassination of the prime minister. What everyone’s wondering about is how everything’s connected, and how Motoko Kusanagi and her team will deal with it. With so much happening, it’s impossible to look away.

Firstly, the hostage situation at the embassy. Motoko Kusanagi and the other six members of the team set out to investigate, and we get a glimpse of the computer virus behind it (Fire Starter).
Meanwhile, the prime minister, while at a hotel having a confidential meeting with Motoko Kusanagi’s former boss at the 501 Organization, Krutz, is killed by explosives in a suitcase that is brought in. Right from the start, tensions are high. There are plenty of scenes involving both cyber-meetings and action, and we can’t help wondering what’s going to happen next.

In 1989 Masamune Shirow’s manga Ghost in the Shell was released, and from there adapted into shows and movies. This includes the 1995 film Ghost in the Shell, directed by Mamoru Oshii, and a TV show, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, directed by Kenji Kamiyama, among others. In Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie, Kazuchika Kise is listed as the general manager and character designer, Tow Ubukata as the screenplay writer, Cornelius as the composer, Kazuya Nomura as the director, and Toru Okubo as the animation director and minor character designer, forming an elite staff. The film Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie looks like it, too, will leave a huge impact on the summer of 2015.
