Ghost in the Shell / Major Kusanagi / Mamoru Oshii

Ghost in the Shell 2 - "Innocence"

Innocence (100 min) was produced

in 2004 and again featured the

genius of director Mamoru Oshii.

Innocence was at the cutting edge of both computer animation and sound technology when it was released. It was a breath taking Master piece. The music features the talent of Kengi Kawai and it is a smooth blend of "Jazz Fusion" and "Techno".

Kusanagi still retains her humanity after losing her body (shell) and finds a host for her existence in the depths of the computer networks.

*The Future -

In 2008 Dreamworks acquired the rights to make a live action version of
"Ghost in the Shell".
The project will involve Stephen Spielberg and the screenplay will be created by Jamie Moss.

*The film will be released in 2011.
