Minneapolis, MN (June 9, 2020) Mill Creek Entertainment is pleased to announce the next release from the Ultraman superhero library! The ULTRAMAN GINGA and ULTRAMAN GINGA S Blu-ray set — containing two complete television series, a movie, and a bonus special — will be released on September 15, 2020 for $49.99 SRP.
Originally released in 2013, the 12-episode ULTRAMAN GINGA (ウルトラマンギンガ, Urutoraman Ginga) was the 25th Ultra Series and the 1st of the “New Generation Heroes” shows. During a great war in space, a dark power turned the Ultramen and their foes into small figures called Spark Dolls, sending them across the universe. In present day Japan, a teenager named Hikaru Raidou finds the Ginga Spark, a mysterious device that can not only return the Spark Dolls to their original giant forms, but also transform the youth into the hero, Ultraman Ginga! As the dark power begins to stir once again, Hikaru uses his newfound power to defend the Earth.
The 16-episode 2014 sequel series, ULTRAMAN GINGA S (ウルトラマンギンガＳ, Urutoraman Ginga S), picked up Ginga’s story 2 years later. Hikaru, now a member of the special investigative team UPG (Ultra Party Guardians), meets Sho, a young man from a subterranean civilization who possesses the power of Ultraman Victory. The two heroes team up to confront a new threat from outer space.
Ginga and Victory returned in the 2015 feature film ULTRAMAN GINGA S THE MOVIE: SHOWDOWN! THE 10 ULTRA WARRIORS! (劇場版 ウルトラマンギンガＳ 決戦! ウルトラ10勇士!!, Gekijō-ban Urutoraman Ginga S Kessen! Urutora 10 Yuushi!!). The sinister alien warlord Etelgar forces a beautiful magical princess to entrap Ultramen all across the galaxy! In order to stop Etelgar and save their fellow Ultra Heroes, Hikaru and Sho must combine into a new, more powerful, form! ULTRAMAN GINGA S THE MOVIE comes with the original Japanese audio plus the English dub heard during the film’s 2016 U.S. theatrical run.
In the 2015 special ULTRA FIGHT VICTORY (ウルトラファイトオーブ 親子の力、おかりします！, Urutorafaito Ōbu Oyako no Chikara, Okari Shimasu!), Ultraman Victory uses a new secret weapon, a combination sword and flute called the Knight Timbre, in battle against the diabolical space emperor Judar Spectre and Yapool, a longtime enemy of the Ultramen. ULTRA FIGHT VICTORY also comes with the original Japanese audio and the English dub.
Digital redemption will also be available via Mill Creek Entertainment’s streaming service, movieSPREE.
