* AdaptationalWimp: The original series' battle between Ultraman and Antlar has the monster being depicted as tough enough to survive a Specium Ray to the chest and continue fighting, necessitating the SSP to use the Blue Stone of Barajj -- said to be the only item capable of defeating Antlar -- as a missile to assist Ultraman. But thanks to compressing the entire fight into a single minute, it's implied right here that Antlar is felled by the Specium Ray, with Ultraman defeating said monster without needing assistance from the humans.
* AdaptationalOriginConnection: In some dubs, Eleking II is stated as being revived by Alien Mefilas II. The original series they were both acting independently without any affiliations.

The film used a rather large amount of StockFootage, primarily for the fighting and training scenes, but a great deal of new footage was shot for the new monsters and scenes involving the Ultras and Nebula M78. It was primarily shown at children's film festivals alongside the ''Series/ChoudenshiBioman'' movie. And while the film itself has since faded into one of the more obscure pieces of ''Ultra Series'' history, its main villains, Juda and Grand King, have become recurring foes of the Ultra heroes. Juda also appeared as the BigBad of a spin-off called ''Andro Melos'', which introduced his siblings Mold and Gina, who would subsequently reappear in a three-part story in ''Series/UltramanX''[[note]]For convenience's sake, Juda and Grand King are primarily described on the ''Series/UltramanTaro'' Character Page, while Gina and Mold are described on that of ''Series/UltramanX''[[/note]].

The film centers around Series/UltramanTaro growing up in the Land of Light in Nebula M78 under the guidance of his parents, the Father and Mother of Ultra. The young Taro dreams of joining the Ultra Brothers (Series/{{Ultraman}}, Zoffy, Series/UltraSeven, [[Series/ReturnOfUltraman Ultraman Jack]], and Series/UltramanAce) as one of their members when he grows up[[note]]Although this contradicts events in his own series, in which he is only slightly younger than them as opposed to still a child when they are already adults[[/note]]. And as he gets older, he finds that his family and the Ultra Brothers believe he is too inexperienced and doesn't have what it takes to be a great warrior like them.

But at the same time, an old enemy of the Father of Ultra, the GalacticConqueror Juda, has returned after a 50 000 year absence and is resurrecting many of the Ultra Brothers' most infamous enemies. He has even succeeded in defeating the Father of Ultra and soon unleashes an incredibly powerful robot named Grand King upon the Ultramen. As the Ultra Brothers face one of their most powerful enemies yet, Ultraman Taro will find the time to prove himself a hero worthy of the name "Ultraman".

''Ultraman Story'' is a 1984 film produced by Creator/TsuburayaProductions as part of their ever-popular ''Franchise/UltraSeries''. This film is one of the more notable pieces of output for the franchise during the fifteen year hiatus period between ''Series/UltramanEighty'' and ''Series/UltramanTiga'' in which there were no new ''Ultraman'' series being produced for television. It is primarily considered an ''Series/UltramanTaro'' movie, even though that series had already ended a decade ago, although its exact placement in ''Ultra Series'' canon is hard to say.
