Gamera Gets A New Video Short And It’s Eye-Popping Good!
Let’s dive into today’s Daily Rewind with a video short, but not just any video, it is one of epic proportions. Gamera! That’s right, the giant flying turtle that breathes fire, Gamera. Apparently he is celebrating a significant anniversary or something. I’m joking, Gamera is 50 years old this year and to celebrate a video short was put together.
The short was reportedly shown Thursday at the New York Comic Con and has since been posted online. You can check it out below. It certainly looks fantastic, and I could definitely get behind seeing more of this, but it looks like we will be waiting a while for something new. Regardless, enjoy some Gamera and get ready to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the giant turtle!
