The live-action Gintama film has proven that it’s one of the most awaited live-action manga adaptations. And to further the excitement, the film’s staff has released several hind-the-scenes still images from the film. This includes the main Yorizuya trio, as well as director Yuuichi Fukuda himself.

The still images not only feature Fukuda coaching Gintoki actor, Shun Oguri, but also the Yorizuya Trio hunting for beetles. The staff also included an image of Katsura and his pet, Elizabeth. In the finished version of the film, the staff will turn Elizabeth into a CGI character.

This 4th-wall destroying live-action film will be making its premiere on 14 July 2017. Shun Oguri stars as Gintoki Sakata, while Masaki Suda plays Shinpachi Shimura. Actress Kana Hashimoto plays the feisty alien powerhouse, Kagura. The movie also stars Masami Nagasawa as Shinpachi’s sister, Tae Shimura, as well as Tsuyoshi Muro as Gengai Hiraga. Tsuyoshi Domoto is also part of the movie as the deadly samurai terrorist, Shinsuke Takasugi.
