Represented by The Licensing Group Ltd
Tsuburaya Productions has relaunched Ultraman in the North America market and has appointed The Licensing Group Ltd as its exclusive North America agency to represent the property for licensing.
The first phase of the licensing program, which has been designated as Classic Ultraman, focuses on the half-hour live-action TV episodes that aired worldwide, including in North America, from the late 1960s to the early 1990s.
This effort has marketing support from Tsuburaya Productions and to-date, the program has successfully generated more than 20 licenses, including an Ultraman comic book series from Marvel Publishing.
The Licensing Group is also licensing the Anime ULTRAMAN series on Netflix, which recently became the number one anime series on the streaming network and will begin a second season in 2021.
Over the past 50 years, the Ultraman franchise has spawned TV series, movies, and live shows, which, from the early ‘90s until now, have only been available in Asia. Tsuburaya Productions is in negotiations to develop additional media support including TV and feature films for the world market.
