Baseball superstar Ken Sato returns to his home country of Japan to pick up the mantle of Earth-defending superhero Ultraman, but quickly finds more than he bargained for when he’s forced to raise the offspring of his greatest foe, a newborn Kaiju. Struggling to balance the roles of teammate and new father, Ken must confront his own ego, his estranged father, and the conniving Kaiju Defense Force to rise up and discover what it truly means to be Ultraman.
This movie was not originally going to be an Ultraman film, but one inspired by the franchise, until Tsuburaya Productions allowed the crew to work with the Ultraman IP. Director Shannon Tindle came up with a concept inspired by Ultraman in the year 2001, before selling it off to another studio and worked on it for a few years before they parted ways. Netflix somehow caught on to the idea and suggested for him to actually make it an Ultraman movie. Tindle then pitched the idea to Tsuburaya Productions, and was allowed to use the IP.
