During the Tokyo event, Kaata Sakamoto, Netflix’s Vice President of Content in Japan stated that Netflix is planning more feature films. As Japan is home to extraordinarily talented individuals who had shaped the world’s cinematic history, Netflix is excited to locate local talent and deliver the stories they have to tell to the whole world.

Meanwhile, Kore-eda also spoke of his deal, saying that the film he will do will be quite different from what he’s done in the past, and will be of a much larger scale. He didn’t delve further into what his projects are about, since they’re still in early development. Kore-eda had directed the Oscar-nominated movie, Shoplifters in 2018, and had also worked on the Hollywood movie, The Truth, starring Ethan Hawke. Nowadays, he’s busy with his first Korean feature Baby, Broker, Boxer.
