Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie is an alluring mix of anime and science fiction in a single compelling anime movie.

Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie is a 2015 anime science fiction film directed by Kazuya Nomura. The Ghost in the Shell told the story of the fictional counter-cyberterrorist organization Public Security Section 9, a special-operations task-force made up of former military officers and police detectives, led by protagonist Major Motoko Kusanagi, in the mid-21st century of Japan.

In this series possible future, many members of the public possess cyber brains, technology that allows them to interface their biological brain with various networks. The level of cyberization varies from simple minimal interfaces to almost complete replacement of the brain with cybernetic parts. This can also be combined with various levels of prostheses (additional artificial device to replace missing or injured body parts), with a fully prosthetic body enabling a person to become a cyborg.

With all humanity connected to one system of minds called ghosts, the greatest threat is when cyberterrorists become capable of hijacking, corrupting and controlling people’s bodies and memories. The Japanese prime minister gets assassinated and deeper into their investigations they (Public Security Section 9) uncover traces of government corruption and a sinister broker who has the identity of the protagonist Major Kusanagi. One has to just trust their ghost and hope they aren’t infected because the target can be anywhere and look like anyone.


In 2008, DreamWorks and Steven Spielberg acquired the rights to produce a live-action film adaptation of the original manga of Ghost in the Shell. On January 5, 2015, Variety confirmed that Scarlett Johansson would star in the film as the lead role. The film is scheduled to start production in early 2016 for a March 31, 2017, (super excited and eagerly waiting to see what this team of super talented individuals will produce).
