Project Ultraman was a planned multimedia project and joint venture between Tsuburaya Chaiyo (50%), Ruishi Culture Developing Co. Ltd. (40%) and Apex Toys (10%), including not only a 52-episode series, but also a feature film and several live shows, following the failed Ultraman Millennium project in the early 2000s.

It was originally meant for a release in international markets. However, the broadcast was prematurely suspended due to the legal disputes between Tsuburaya Productions and Chaiyo, which eventually led to the project being shut down.

Synopsis

In the near future, a massive collision event with a meteorite causes the Earth's axes to shift drastically, plunging the planet into a climate crisis and turning one-third of its landscape into barren wasteland, pushing humanity to the brink of extinction. 

Fifteen years later, mankind makes steady progress towards recovery, led by a coalition of thirteen masked leaders from the mysterious organization S, who establish BASE 64 and the attack team CUT[1] to protect Earth against malicious threats. When alien monsters emerge and launch their assault against humanity, a critical situation triggers a young man's transformation into Ultraman Millennium, and the battle for the Earth begins.

Attractions

  • Ultraman Town and Museum: A planned attraction that would have opened in Pratunam Pra-In, Pathum Thani in 2003.[9] The idea was allegedly revitalized into the Tsuburaya Chaiyo Ultraman Theme Park.
  • Ultraman restaurant chain: A planned restaurant chain that would have been launched in 2004.[9]
  • Tsuburaya Chaiyo Ultraman Theme Park: Before the cancellation of the franchise, the construction of an Ultraman theme park, which would have been built in the ancient Thai capital of Ayutthaya, was in the works. Currently, a giant dilapidated Ultraman mask stands at its entrance, the aftermath of the floods that struck the country in 2011. [9] Sompote Saengduenchai's personal Ultraman memorabilia museum is located further inside, though the fate of it is unknown after his passing.

Trivia

  • It is worth noting that the Project Ultraman television show, if successful, would have been followed up by a movie introducing four more Thai Ultras created by Chaiyo Productions. To this day, it is unknown what these four Ultras would have looked like.
  • Setting aside the fact that it was an illegal production, Project Ultraman would have been one of the most ambitious ventures in the franchise's history:
    • features an ensemble cast of famous Thai, Hong Kong and Chinese celebrities;
    • filming in locations across the world (Gobi Desert, Tibetan mountains, Thailand, etc.)[10]
    • Hollywood staff working on special effects and CGI;
    • international broadcasting in more than 10 countries;
    • and the construction of a USD$25.3m theme park in Thailand's capital[11].
