What is EGT

The Birth of EGT

Earl Grey Tokusatsu (EGT for short) is an original genre developed by Max Ellis.

The concept was born from the idea of Spaghetti Westerns (cowboy films made by Italian directors).

“With this in mind, I thought

‘what would you call tokusatsu films made by an Englishman?’

From there I thought, ‘if spaghetti is the most famous Italian food, then what would be England’s?’
and the answer was tea, obviously.”

And the most famous English tea in the world is Earl Grey.

Thus began EGT – tokusatsu hero series made by an English director.
