For fans of Space Pirate Captain Harlock, Yahoo! Japan has posted a 12 minute clip of the upcoming CGI movie. The story will be made to reflect themes of modern society as opposed to the manga series, from the late 70’s on which it’s based.
This is most Toei Animatiion has ever spent on a production, with costs exceeding $30 million. The story for this feature film was written by Harutoshi Fukui and the latest movie technology, provided by Toei, will be used to construct this film.
The trailers look fantastic and we’re just hoping that it turns out as great as it looks so far. It’s set for a September 2013 release date in Japan.
