Ghost in the Shell: Shin Gekijōban (Japanese: 攻殻機動隊 新劇場版/GHOST IN THE SHELL, Kōkaku Kidōtai Shin Gekijōban / Gōsuto in Za Sheru, i.e. Mobile Armored Riot Police: New Movie / Ghost in the Shell) is an upcoming 2015 anime science fiction film based on Masamune Shirow's Ghost in the Shell. The film will have Kazuya Nomura as the director, Kazuchika Kise as the general director and character designer, Toru Okubo as the animation director, Tow Ubukata as the screenplay writer and Cornelius as the composer.

The film will likely be connected to Ghost in the Shell: Arise in some way, as the production team as well as the voice cast are mostly carried over.[1]

Plot Summary Edit

Set after the events of Arise, the film involves the assassination of the Prime Minister of Japan which is publicly described as the "greatest event since the war". It is up to Public Security Section 9, led by Major Motoko Kusanagi, to discover the true nature of the murder. They are aided by the Prime Minister's son, Osamu Fujimoto.[2]

Motoko's origin Edit

We learn that Motoko's parents had been researching how to avoid androids becoming dead ended obsoletes unable to upgrade when they died. Her mother was pregnant at the time and the unborn Motoko's was given a prosthetic body (much like her counterpart in the original films as opposed to the version in the Stand Alone Complex who was a small child in a plane crash).

Development Edit

On September 5, 2014, it was revealed by Production I.G. that a new Ghost in the Shell animated film will be released in 2015 promising to show the "further evolution [of the series]".[4] On January 8, 2015, a short teaser trailer was revealed for the project unveiling a redesigned Major more closely resembling her appearance from the older films.[5]
