Japanese Psycho Thriller Gannibal Drops On Disney+ Hotstar In December

This winter, be sure to turn on all the lights and check behind the sofa before settling in to enjoy Gannibal, a heart-pounding new Japanese psychothriller coming to Disney+ Hotstar on 28 December 2022.

Recently selected to be screened at the Tokyo International Film Festival, and with a trailer and premiere date revealed today at the Disney Content Showcase, this upcoming Original is set in Kuge, a fictional Japanese village, and sees newly hired police officer Daigo Agawa arrive a broken man. While things start off promisingly for the new arrival, a series of alarming events begin to unfold that will lead Daigo to the horrifying realization that something is deeply wrong with the village and those who live there. Thrown into a hostile environment with suspense around every corner, will the latest police officer to roam the streets of Kuge village be able to bring those responsible to justice before it’s too late?

Based on the hit manga series of the same name by Masaaki Ninomiya, Gannibal features a unique storyline brought to life exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar by some of the biggest names in the Japanese creative industry. Produced by Teruhisa Yamamoto, producer of this year’s Academy Award-winning Drive My Car and Tatsuya Iwakura, Gannibal is directed by Shinzo Katayama (Siblings on the Cape) and adapted for the screen by Best Adapted Screenplay Academy Award-nominee Takamasa Oe, who most recently wrote the screenplay for the Academy Award-winning Drive My Car.

“Gannibal is a thriller that will leave audiences gasping with shock after every?episode,” said producer Teruhisa Yamamoto. “But it’s also a human story that reflects upon the differences between family values and culture that, at a glance, seem so contradictory and yet are so relatable. With Gannibal and our other Japanese local content, we are building on Disney’s rich history of storytelling and are combining it with Japanese creativity to open new doors of entertainment for everyone.”

Audiences can enjoy a first look at this upcoming series starring award-winning actors Yuya Yagira (HOKUSAI, Asakusa Kid), Show Kasamatsu (Tokyo Vice, Love You as the World Ends) and Riho Yoshioka (Haken Anime!, The Romance Manga Artist) and in the newly released trailer.

Gannibal is the latest series to be announced as part of The Walt Disney Company’s growing APAC content slate, joining a whole host of stories announced at today’s Disney Content Showcase, including: Dragons of Wonderhatch, a groundbreaking series set to combine live-action and anime elements that tells the story of a high school girl who struggles to fit in with her classmates before being swept up on an adventure with a boy from another world who will forever change her destiny; House of the Owl, an upcoming live-action drama about a revered fixer in Japan who can guide his clients through any scandal; and Tokyo Revengers: Christmas Showdown Arc – the first title to be released as part of the Company’s extended collaboration with Kodansha, that will see former bad boy Takemichi use his accidentally acquired powers of time travel to go back and save his high school girlfriend from being murdered by the Tokyo Manji gang, unwittingly changing the destinies of those around him.
