Macross Frontier Movie!
The planned Fall opening date for a theatrical film remake of the Macross Frontier anime series was announced via an itasha (vehicle decorated with character art) mini-van outside the “Macross: The Super Dimension Space Launching Ceremony” event on Sunday. However, creator Shoji Kawamori and the cast members Yuuichi Nakamura (Alto), Aya Endo (Sheryl), and Megumi Nakajima (Ranka) noted in the actual event that the new date and even the title of the project is subject to change.
During the event, the voice cast performed a live audio recording for a promotional video of the theatrical film project. The promotional video included brief new footage of the arena for Sheryl’s concert in the story and Nakajima’s new song, “Sō Da Yo.”
Dressed as the singer character Lynn Minmay from the first Macross series and film, Nakajima sang covers of Macross songs such as “Watashi no Kare wa Pilot” (“My Boyfriend’s a Pilot”), “Tenshi no Enogu” (“An Angel’s Paints”), and “Ai, Oboeteimasuka” (“Do You Remember Love?”).
