Captain Harlock Movie
 
Captain Harlock Sci-Fi Anime's Remake to Open This Fall

Toei announced on Thursday that its film remake of Leiji Matsumoto's Space Pirate Captain Harlock anime will open this fall. Toei made the announcement during its Tokyo unveiling of its film lineup.

In Matsumoto's original 1977-79 manga, the title character fights for humanity with his 40 crew members aboard the invincible space battleship Arcadia. The manga inspired a 1978-1979 television anime series, a few features, and the sequel Arcadia of My Youth: Endless Orbit SSX.

Toei Animation first announced in 2010 that it made a pilot for a computer-graphics remake, and it presented the pilot at Tokyo International Anime Fair that year. It then presented a preview at France's Annecy, the world's largest animation film festival, in 2011.

Writer Harutoshi Fukui (Mobile Suit Gundam UC novels, live-action Bōkoku no Aegis) reconstructed the story to reflect the themes of modern society, and Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) is directing with the latest filmmaking technology. According to the news source Oricon, this film has Toei Animation's highest production budget ever at the equivalent of over 30 million U.S. dollars.

Toei Animation had initially planned to release the 3D remakes of Space Pirate Captain Harlock and its robot anime series Daikuu Maryuu Gaiking in 2012.

Captain Harlock.

Not entirely sure what to think anymore. The Captain and canon never get along anyway, so he could be anywhere....anywhen.

Though Tochiro is still dead I asssume. Since he is in most versions unless the Captain is rather young.

Also the Arcadia is a lot different. Looks like a mix of the original, the second, and the Yamato from Yamato 2520 (gun arrangement only).

I never seen the show, but is this a sequel or something?

Ithekro 2013-02-04 00:02

With Captain Harlock...you can't tell. It could be a reboot, a near sequel, and alterate universe, an ancestor, a desendant. Could be a lot of things given that Matsumoto really doesn't care about continuity. The last major Harlock series was Endless Odyssey, which was almost a sequel to the original 1970s series...but it was also not, because following a timeline is not for manly people like Harlock.

There have been many attempts to make a unified timeline for the various series: Space Pirate Captain Harlock, Endless Orbit SSX Harlock Saga, Endless Odyssey, Galaxy Express 999, Queen Emeraldas, Galaxy Railways, and Cosmo Warrior Zero, which all have Harlock in them. It never works out correctly unless one is more fluid with the nature of time than others. There are even attempts to include Gun Frontier and Space Battleship Yamato in the timeline with Interstella 5555.

I had ever watched since I was young.

Some unusual fan art. (both are large)

First what I assume is a speculative version of Yamato if Harlock and Tochiro rebuilt a Gamilas warship to become the first space battleship Arcadia.

The second is a more interesting take based on Yamato 2199. With the elder Kodai (Captain of the Yukikaze) as Pirate Captain Harlock and the Gamilas pilot Dietz as Emeraldas.

The troops are still very much like the troops from Legends of the Galactic Heroes.

The movie looks better with every new trailer/teaser. I hope they will leave out the godawful music from this trailer though.

Ithekro 2013-05-10 18:14

If it is anything like the live action Yamato movie, that music will be the song for the ending credits.

International Dub Plans
