Ghost in the Shell was originally scheduled by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures for an April 14, 2017 release through their Touchstone Pictures banner. The film was part of DreamWorks’ distribution deal with Walt Disney Studios, which began in 2009. In April 2015, Disney moved the film’s release date in North America to March 31, 2017, with Paramount Pictures handling international distribution. However, it was reported in September 2015, that DreamWorks and Disney would not renew their distribution deal that was set to expire in August 2016. In January 2016, Disney dropped the film from its release slate after DreamWorks’ distribution deal with Universal Pictures was finalized in December 2015. Disney’s distribution rights for the film were transferred completely to Paramount instead of Universal, with Paramount retaining Disney’s release date of March 31, 2017
Ghost in the Shell (Japanese: 攻殻機動隊 Hepburn: Kōkaku Kidōtai?, literally “Mobile Armored Riot Police”) is a seinen manga series written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow, which spawned the media franchise of the same name. The manga, first serialized in 1989 under the subtitle of The Ghost in the Shell, and later published as its own tankōbon volumes by Kodansha, told the story of the fictional counter-cyberterrorist organization Public Security Section 9, led by protagonist Major Motoko Kusanagi, in the mid 21st century of Japan. Ghost in the Shell 2: Man-Machine Interface was the sequel work which follows the story of Motoko after merging with the Puppeteer. The last volume, Ghost in the Shell 1.5: Human-Error Processor, contains four separate cases.
The books contain Shirow’s thoughts on design and philosophy, including sociological issues, the consequences of technological advances and themes on the nature of consciousness and identity. Several artbooks have been released to detail the concept art and the world of Ghost in the Shell. All three volumes have received mainly positive reviews.
