Space Battleship Yamato: 2199 - First Trailer

Posted by Grey Saturday, November 19, 2011

Here's your first look at Space Battleship Yamato: 2199, a faithful remake of the original classic anime series in 1974.

Late last year, we have seen the release of the big-budget, live-action adaptation of the 1974 classic anime series, Space Battleship Yamato (宇宙戦艦ヤマト Uchū Senkan Yamato). Perhaps better-known to the Western audiences as "Star Blazers" when it was imported to the United States in 1979, the animated series has long been considered as one of the original pioneer in driving more mature overtones in animation and remained to be one of the most influential sci-fi space opera properties ever since.

With the overwhelming success of the live-action film adaptation, a remake of the original series was announced. Confirmed at this year's Anime Expo as a remake of the original "Journey to Iscandar" story arc, the series will be helmed by Shoji Nishizaki, the adopted son of the late Space Battleship Yamato creator/producer, Yoshinobu Nishizaki. Yutaka Izubuchi, the creator renowned for his much-celebrated character and mechanical design for RahXephon, will be serving as the Supervising Director. In addition, famed mechanical designer Makoto Kobayashi will also be involved in the production. Produced by Xebec and AIC, the first two episodes of the series will be edited into a 50-minute feature film to promote the title in April next year.
