Patlabor also known as Mobile Police Patlabor, is a 1988 anime and manga that centered around the special robotics force of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police as they solved various cases in a then-near-future of 1998. There have been several anime films, anime series, mangas, light novels and video games to date.

The film will not be a remake of Mamoru Oshii's (Ghost in the Shell) original anime but will instead tell a completely new story. The project has been dubbed Patlabor - The Third Generation and is set in 2013, where the Tokyo Metropolitan Police force has been disbanded. The TMP has been dispersed into two separate divisions, Section 2, "police robots" Division 1 and Section 2 "barely holding on, budget cut" Division 2. Former singer Erina Mano will play the lead heroine, Akira Izumino. Rounding out the cast are Seiji Fukushi as Yūma Shiobara, Rina Oota as Ekaterina Krachevna Kankaeva, voice-actor Shigeru Chiba will play his anime character, maintenance squad chief Shigeo Shiba, and Toshio Kakei as Captain Keiji Gotōda.
