The Ghost In The Shell Movie We Never Had

The Ghost In The Shell Movie We Never Had

I’m not sure a live-action Ghost in the Shell adaptation would be a good idea, but an homage to the opening of Mamoru Oshii’s 1995 anime with real-life characters can’t hurt. Director Ash Thorpe and his Project 2501 team recreated the title sequence, Motoko Kusanagi’s birth, in a real-life environment, with a bit of CG added.

Here’s a behind the scenes clip below. Note: Since Kusanagi doesn’t wear any clothes in the anime’s opening and this is a faithful remake, the video is slightly NSFW:

You can compare it with the original opening. It never gets old:
