Ultraman faces his toughest challenge yet - raising a kaiju in Tokyo.


Why watch this film?

Ultraman: Rising is a charming Netflix animation that puts the traditional Japanese character in the perspective of children. In the story, Ken Sato, a baseball superstar, returns to Japan to become the newest hero to take on the mantle of Ultraman. His plans go awry, however, when he is forced to raise a newborn kaiju monster, the offspring of his greatest enemy, as his own child. Sato will also have to deal with his relationship with his estranged father and the schemes of the Kaiju Defense Force. A film for the little ones, but one that also finds space to awaken the child within each of us.
