Continuing with a stream of anime announcements that started at least a month ago with Pacific Rim and Altered Carbon, Netflix has revealed it's working on a continuation of yet another classic series with Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045, which is due in 2020. The director of the original series, Kenji Kamiyama is teaming up to co-direct with Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) on this one, after the two were already paired on the Ultraman movie that's coming to Netflix next year and a Blade Runner series that's in the works for Cartoon Network and Crunchyroll.

Unlike Cowboy Bebop this will not be a live-action remake, instead they're using the 3DCG technique seen in Appleseed to create a "next-generation animation film." This drawing gives a preview of the form heroine Motoko Kutsanagi will take in the new series, but so far that's all we have.
