Animated movie “Batman Ninja” will be the first of the Batman series to be turned into stage performance titled “BATMAN NINJA-THE SHOW”. The stage will be held at Theather Moliere Shinjuku in Tokyo from Oct. 10, 2020, over 172 performances.
“Batman Ninja” was produced in Japan borrowing the characters from the DC Comics “Batman”. The production was led by the studio behind the opening movies of the anime “JoJo's Bizarre Adventures”, Kamikaze Douga. The movie takes place in ancient Japan as Batman and Joker get teleported there through a time slip. The movie was highly praised among audiences not only in the USA and Japan, but also the entire world.
The stage play will be directed and produced by Office ENDLESS, also responsible for other big titles such as “Yu Yu Hakusho” and “Mobile Suit Gundam 00”.
The play promises to deliver “Super Tri-Dimendionsal Extreme Experience” by making the best use of the physical location “Shinjuku Theather Moliere”, which is set up in a way that provides a sense of closeness between the stage and the audience seats.
“BATMAN NINJA-THE SHOW” will happen over 172 times from Oct. 10 to Dec. 31, 2020. The performing cast will be announced soon.
