The Ultraman: Rising CG film is less than a month away from its June 14 premiere, which is a good time for Netflix to drop an official trailer and a new visual that highlight Ultraman Ken Sato’s struggles with being an adoptive parent to a kaiju hatchling.

“Honestly, it’s not easy. They’re like little monsters sometimes,” Ken is told when seeking advice about juggling child-rearing with other responsibilities. 

Ultraman: Rising is co-directed by Shannon Tindle and John Aoshima with a screenplay by Tindle and Marc Haimes. Special effects house Industrial Light & Magic, which previously tackled feature animation with 2011’s Rango, is animating the film.

The plot is described as:

With Tokyo under siege from rising monster attacks, baseball star Ken Sato reluctantly returns home to take on the mantle of #Ultraman. But the titanic superhero meets his match when he reluctantly adopts a 35-foot-tall, fire-breathing baby kaiju. Sato must rise above his ego to balance work and parenthood while protecting the baby from forces bent on exploiting her for their own dark plans.
