NEW Space Battleship Yamato/Star Blazers Movie

Postby banson on Wed Nov 11, 2009 2:37 pm

26 years after it’s original release, a new Space Battleship Yamato movie is on the way. Released as Star Blazers in America, it became one of the most popular space operas ever. The film has been stuck in develpment for over a decade due in large part to a copyright battle, but that case has finally been resolved, and on December 12, Space Battleship Yamato: Rebirth will premiere in Japan. We may not see a theatre release in America, but hopefully the DVD will find its way here. You can read a little bit more of the story, and see some trailers for the new movie at http://mylardreams.com

That looks way cool but how come there are no subtitles for the Aliens language? I can't understand them.
Papa: The musical!

Watch the Space Battleship Yamato lift off for the first time in a new Yamato 2199 trailer!
Charlie Jane Anders wrote:Space Battleship Yamato may be the most famous Japanese space opera of all time, and it's going strong in Japan. (In the U.S., where the anime series was renamed Star Blazers, we still haven't gotten the 2010 live-action film.)

Now there's a new anime series coming: Space Battleship Yamato 2199, which will launch with a theatrical release of its opening episodes in April. According to TrekWeb:
The basic story of Yamato 2199 is the same as the first Yamato anime set in 2199, but Yutaka Izubuchi (RahXephon), the 52-year-old animator who worked on mechanical designs and science-fiction concepts on some of the earlier projects in the franchise, is serving as chief director. Yoshinobu Nishizaki, the late producer of the franchise, is credited with the original story. Nobuteru Yuki (Escaflowne, Record of Lodoss War) is designing the characters, and the anime studios XEBEC and AIC are producing the anime. Mechanical designer Makoto Kobayashi (Giant Robo, Last Exile, Space Battleship Yamato Resurrection) revealed at Anime Expo in July that he is working on a Yamato remake for next year.

Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Star-Voyaging Ark

Postby TheButcher on Fri Jul 04, 2014 1:44 pm

New Yamato 2199 Film's Title, Date, Studio Announced
The producer, chief director, and voice cast of the Space Battleship Yamato 2199 project announced the title, opening date, and animation studio for the upcoming brand-new film on Monday. XEBEC is animating Uchū Senkan Yamato 2199: Hoshi-Meguru Hakobune (Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Star-Voyaging Ark) for a December 6 release with returning chief director Yutaka Izubuchi. Unlike the previous Yamato 2199 event screenings in theaters, the new film will have a full nationwide release.

Producer Shoji Nishizaki (the adopted son of the late Yamato producer Yoshinobu Nishizaki) and voice cast members Aya Uchida (Yuria Misaki) and Takayuki Sugo (Jūzō Okita) made the announcements at a 40th anniversary project unveiling in Tokyo on Monday. They also unveiled the 1/100-scale Yamato ship model for this spring's Yamato art exhibition.

Before the new film opens, Xebec is assembling a special compilation film, Uchū Senkan Yamato 2199: Tsuioku no Kōkai (Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Voyage of Remembrance) from the seven previous parts. It will play in event screenings (similar to the earlier limited Yamato 2199 screenings) starting on October 11. Episode writer Shigeru Morita is putting the film's story together, and episode director Takao Kato (episode 18) is helming the compilation film.

The project's website had previously announced that the new film was slated to open in late fall.
