Ultraman Orb is getting a movie! Ultraman Orb: Lend Me the Power of Your Bonds will be released after the show’s finale airs on March 11th 2017.
The film was officially announced during the lighting ceremony at the Ario Hashimoto plaza in Sagamihara City, Kanagawa Prefecture. Ultraman Orb star Hideo Ishiguro (Kurenai Gai) showed up along with Ultraman and Ultraman Tiga to unveil a new statue depicting the “Orb Origin” form. During the ceremony, Ishiguro surprised attendees by announcing the film and bringing out Orb Trinity.
One day, a mysterious device is sent to the Something Search People. That device is Ultraman X’s transformation item: the X Devizer. Because of an enemy trap, the rescinded Ultraman X, who has a Unite with Xio member Daichi Ozora, sets out in search of him alongside the SSP and Gai Kurenai, who has returned from a journey. However, that’s only just the beginning of the danger lurking.
The Dark Ring, that can amplify the monster’s abilities, surrounds the monster with the most purest of evil hearts. Murunau, the Space Witch Thief who loves beauty and turning beautiful things into gem stones, has her hands on the Ring. Murunau transforms Ginga and Victory into gem stones, and with Earth as a target, tries to turn the Earth itself into one of her treasures. On the other side, the schemer Jugglus Juggler has another hidden agenda. The one leading Murunau’s Evil Alien Army is X, who has been turned into a treasure of Murunau.
Can Ultraman Orb protect the new generation heroes and defeat Murunau? His fiery heart that believes in his friends brings forth a new “power of bonds.” The greatest battle for the future of Earth begins!
Ultraman Orb the Movie is directed by the series’ head director, Kiyotaka Taguchi from a script by Takao Nakano. Returning Ultra Series stars include Ultraman X star Kensuke Takahashi and Kohji Moritsugu, reprising his role as Ultra Seven for that show’s 50th anniversary.
