Ultraman Orb the Origin Saga Trailer Released


A new trailer was released showcasing the cast and characters for the upcoming Ultraman Orb prequel series streaming on Amazon Prime, Ultraman Orb the Origin Saga.

The 12 episode series will star Hideo Ishiguro and Takaya Aoyagi, reprising their roles as the enemies Gai Kurenai/Ultraman Orb and Jugglus Juggler from the TV series.

Tsuburaya’s press release states “this is the beginning of Ultraman Orb”.

On the far off planet of O-50, two young men, Gai and Juggler, find a dazzling light that has searched for someone possessing excellent qualities to become a warrior of light. Chosen by the light, Gai wields the holy sword, the Orb Caliber, and becomes Ultraman Orb. Using this newfound strength, Gai and Juggler work to defend the universe from the threat of the Galactic Bezelb, controlled by the mysterious Dr. Saiki. Facing this threat, the young warrior of light now asks himself what the true meaning of peace is as his first mission begins.

The cast of characters include:

Gai Kurenai, played by Hideo Ishiguro

A young man who reached the towering Warrior Summit, who was bestowed with the Orb Caliber and chosen to become Ultraman Orb. A young warrior of light who lives by the mantra “without hurting anyone, without making anyone sad” and fights against Saiki.

Jugglus Juggler, played by Takaya Aoyagi

An elite warrior who uses the Serpant Spirit style of sword fighting. Along with Gai, he also reached the Warrior Summit. Although he and Gai are both the great warriors, he was not chosen by the light and becomes irritable when Gai speaks of his ideals but nonetheless supports him in his duties.

      We still don’t know, the press release simply mentions that a circular light sits at the top of a mountain called the Warrior Summit waiting for someone with remarkable character to be worthy.
