Tokuasia has released its concept trailer for their indie tokusatsu project Sacred Guardian Singa. The trailer has launched worldwide after screenings at the launch event at the Singapore Visitor Centre (Katong & Joo Chiat) in November 2019 and Singapore Comic Con in December 2019.
The trailer was created as a proof of concept and gives viewers a hint of what’s to come.
From the press release:
“Sacred Guardian Singa is the story of a young man intent on forging his own path, who must come to terms with a power he is destined to inherit from a past life, in order to defend the future of humanity against an evil cult that seeks to free their leader from his centuries-long imprisonment within the fabled Crown of Nila Utama. Inspired by popular long-running Tokusatsu (SFX) programs such as Kamen Rider, Sacred Guardian Singa firmly embraces its Singaporean & Southeast Asian origin by incorporating the region’s shared history & mythology into its lore, all while telling a contemporary superhero story that deals with identity, purpose and destiny.”
The concept trailer stars Kasimir Poh Cieslak as Ryan Leong, Dorothy Leong as Insp. Yvonne Chan, Sherly Devonne Ng as Ling, and Kris Mavericko as Dr. Sam Patel/Dr. Grulin.
In charge of the trailer is Director Aydeel Djoeharie, Producer Basil Yeo and Aydeel Djoeharie, Assistant Director DJ Djitowibowo, with the screenplay by Basil Yeo.
