We’re honored to have an opportunity to add a unique thread to the grand Ultraman tapestry- drawing on all that has come before, to create something unlike anything that has come before,” Higgins and Groom told last month. “Familiar faces, taking on brand-new roles. Familiar ideas, but given brand-new spins.
