The final trailer for Netflix‘s upcoming Ghost In The Shell SAC_2045 anime series has arrived alongside an official release date. The trailer gives us new footage we haven’t seen before, and it also showcases protagonist Major Kusanagi and her fellow officers in their new computer generated art style.
The series takes place in the year 2045 following Stand Alone Complex and after an event called Synchronized Global Default has provoked economic disaster in the world. AI technology has also become so advanced that it has sparked a war called the “Sustainable War.” As a result, a new dangerous posthuman species has surfaced, as explained in the video.
Here’s the official description for Ghost In The Shell SAC_2045 :
“Ghost in the Shell, a landmark in near-future science fiction, brings together Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki as they present their vision of the year 2045 in Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045.
