Terminator, Netflix series statements

Mattson Tomlin said:

They are very honored by the opportunity given to me by Netflix and Skydance to give my personal vision of Terminator. Anyone who knows me knows that I love to break conventions, undermine expectations and hit hard and this will be the case for this project too!

John Derderian, Vice President of Netflix Japan, commented:

Terminator is one of the most iconic science fiction franchises ever and over time it has become increasingly closer to the issues of reality. The new animated series will explore its universe in a way that has never been done before.

Mitsuhisa Ishikawa, President and CEO of Production IG, concludes:

I asked my friend and longtime colleague Mamoru Oshii what he thought of turning Terminator into a animated series. His response was: "Ishikawa, are you crazy?" At that moment I realized that we should have come aboard the project. As a big fan, our Production I.G team is putting their heart and soul into creating this series. We hope fans like it!
