Fans of the anime classic Ghost in the Shell have something to look forward to this fall, as the legendary sci-fi cyberpunk franchise and current Netflix property is set to return to the big screen in November 2023 with a new movie.


As revealed in a recent post to the Ghost in the Shell: SAC 2045 official website, Major Motoko Kusanagi and her team at Public Security Section 9 will be making a return to the silver screen in the new film Ghost in the Shell SAC_2045: The Last Human. The film, which compiles the 12-episode second season of the Netflix animated series Ghost in the Shell SAC_2045, will premiere on November 23, 2023, in 30 select cinemas across Japan. Internationally, the movie will stream in its entirety on Netflix sometime thereafter. The movie also includes new, previously unseen content that will add precious details to the story of the anime’s second season.


New Ghost In The Shell Movie Compiles The Second Season Of The Netflix Anime

Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki’s Ghost in the Shell SAC_2045, which is the fourth animated series in the franchise, follows the continuing exploits of Major Kusanagi and Section 9. The film takes place in the alternate Stand Alone Complex (SAC) timeline that is different from the original 1995 Ghost in the Shell (GIS) movie world. The key difference is that the focus of SAC is more on Section 9 as a crime-fighting unit dealing with multiple criminal threats. In GIS the focus is on Kusanagi as an individual crime-fighter / hero trying to stop one criminal mastermind.

The 12-episode first season of Ghost in the Shell SAC_2045 debuted on Netflix in 2020. The story picks up in 2045, 11 years after the events Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – Solid State Society. Kusanagi and her team deal with the reality of a “sustainable war” between China, Russia, the European Union, and the United States. Rather than using actual human soldiers, the four powers rely on artificial intelligence (AI) and technology-enhanced humans, known as “post-humans”. Some of these post-humans begin acting on their own and taking advantage of the global war to benefit themselves. With their super-powered bodies and access to the latest in AI technology, post-humans are the most dangerous threat Kusanagi and her team have ever faced. The first season was condensed into the movie Ghost in the Shell SAC_2045: Sustainable War.

In the second season, which debuted in May 2022, the team has successfully been reinstated as a government unit. Kusanagi and Section 9 are now tasked with a deeper investigation of the post-human threat. While the new movie compiles the Second Season’s episodes, Netflix and the Ghost in the Shell creators have also included new previously unseen content to increase its thematic cohesiveness and deliver a more dramatic effect.
