Netflix has announced that an upcoming Japanese animated Godzilla movie is on its way to the streaming service.

The anime comes from Toho, the creator of the franchise who has released 30 of the 32 total movies including this one and last year’s hit Godzilla Resurgence (or Shin Godzilla), in collaboration with Polygon Pictures. The plan is to release the film on Netflix globally after an initial theatrical run in Japan.

Kobun Shizuno (Knights of Sidonia, Detective Conan) and Hiroyuki Seshita (AJIN: Demi-Human, BLAME!) direct the movie, with anime writer Gen Urobuchi (Psycho-Pass, Madoka Magika) having penned the screenplay.

Of the project, Shizuno said:

“We’re looking forward to bringing a spectacular entertainment experience for both existing fans of Godzilla and people new to the franchise.”

With Seshita adding:

“I’m thrilled to collaborate with two very talented colleagues, Mr. Gen Urobuchi and Director Kobun Shizuno to bring to life a unique vision of a universal human drama set in an epic world.”

Urobuchi also released a statement, saying:

“I am very honored to join this Godzilla project as one of its Japanese creators. I’m grateful for all the support and really excited to bringing this content to fans worldwide.”

Finally, president of Netflix Japan Greg Peters said:

“We are truly delighted to unveil Godzilla, which is the latest addition to our growing catalogue of Netflix original anime content. Working with the best creators such as Toho in bringing Godzilla to Netflix users in over 190 countries marks a major milestone for us.”

The voice cast for the anime includes Yuki Kaji (Attack on Titan, AJIN: Demi-Human), Takahiro Sakurai (AJIN: Demi-Human, BLAME!), Tomokazu Sugita (Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure), Junichi Suwabe (Nodame Cantabile, Prince of Tennis), Kana Hanazawa (BLAME!, Psycho-Pass), and Mamoru Miyano (AJIN: Demi-Human, The Seven Deadly Sins).

You can expect to see the movie sometime later this year.
