Predecessor to shows like Power Rangers, the 1966 Japanese live-action TV series was all about Shin Hayata, a member of the Science Patrol anti-monster defense agency. Hayata was accidentally killed by an alien who then brought him back to life with superpowers, allowing him to transform from a mere human into a 131-foot red and silver superhero named Ultraman to battle giant creatures.
This new trailer teases the return of Ultraman, as a new computer-generated anime series on Netflix.
The new Netflix series' trailer focuses on Hayata's son Shinjiro, who must replace his elderly father as a new Ultraman. Shinjiro inherits his father's powers to fight an evil force pretending to be the legendary superhero.
The new Ultraman debuts on Netflix on April 1, 2019.
