The official Gamera -Rebirth- website reveals the storyline revolving around four young boys in the year 1989:
The last summer. Friends. And Kaiju...
In the summer of 1989, Boco, Joe and Junichi were in the 6th grade, and in their last summer vacation as elementary school students. Each of them has vague fears about the future.
Then Brody, the son of the commander of the U.S. forces in Japan, confronts them.Brody steals the cash the three of them have saved.
Angered, Boco and his friends devise a plan to get their money back.
Just as they are about to execute their plan, the town is hit by a crisis. The monster Gyaos suddenly attacks Tokyo.
The four boys are trapped in a town reduced to ruins by Gyaos. As Gyaos sets its sights on them, a giant monster appears. Its name is Gamera.
This was the beginning of their "Summer of Kaiju." The monsters appear one after another. Gamera fights back despite his wounds. And the boys witness a legend.
Hiroyuki Seshita returns to the kaiju genre as the lead director of Gamera's revival in the upcoming anime series. Seshita, a long time Godzilla fan, was one of the co-directors on Polygon's Anime Godzilla Trilogy. With him comes a host of writers, including Hiroshi Seko (Attack on Titan), Tetsua Yamada (Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle) and Kenta Ihara (Ajin). Kan Takahama will design the monsters, having previously worked on the acclaimed Shinya Tsukamoto's Tetsuo II. The voice cast includes Hisako Kanemoto (Atra from Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans), Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Hashibira from Demon Slayer), Aki Toyosaki (Young Teoni from Demon Slayer) and Subaru Kimura (Takeshi Goda from Doraemon).
Gamera -Rebirth- premieres on Netflix this year.
