Beyblade first appeared as a line of spinning top toys in 1999. Aside from the toys, Beyblade also received manga and anime adaptations. The first anime focused on a team of Beyblade players who aimed to become world champions. There are multiple spin-offs and sequels from the original, with Beyblade Burst QuadDrive being the most recent. It is unknown if the Beyblade movie will follow one of the existing shows or if it will have an original story.

Other retro anime series with a live-action adaptation on the way include One Piece and Yu Yu Hakusho. One Piece has already started filming, whereas Yu Yu Hakusho has a release window of December 2023. Both will air on Netflix. Speaking of Netflix, the Cowboy Bebop live-action series is available on the streaming service as well. However, it will not receive a second season.

The Beyblade live-action movie is in production, and more news on it will appear in the future.
