Production IG has confirmed that Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - Solid State Society will be a 100 minute long production. The studio anticipates having the new production completed by this summer, but has not yet decided if the new anime will be broadcast on television, released straight to home video, or released as a theatrical movie. The first "promotion image" for Solid State Society will be revealed on March 26th at the Tokyo International Anime Fair.From Anime News Network:
The 100-minute (tentative running time) movie takes place in 2034, two years after the refugee riot incident. A significantly larger Section 9, with over 20 new officers, investigates terrorist actions related to a wizard-like hacker “Kugutsu Mawashi.”
