Space Battleship Yamato: Rebirth Chapter

74-year-old producer Yoshinobu Nishizaki is planning to revive the animated side of the franchise this December with the Uchuu Senkan Yamato Fukkatsu-hen anime film — 26 years after the last Yamato film. The biggest theme of the new anime film will be environmental issues and how humans have treated the planet Earth.

Noboru Ishiguro, director of the Space Battleship Yamato television anime series, has confirmed at his Otakon panel on Saturday that a live-action version of Yamato is in development.

  1. pity matsumoto is totally out of the loop on this one. hatred runs deep!!

    • Oh, why he is not participating? What happened?

      • There were disputes over the rights to the property that lead to a court battle.

        The lack of Matsumoto and the desire to keep from getting hit over the head with enviromental themes more than I already am means I’ll probably skip this. If it actually gets made that is (there’s been a number of abandoned Yamato projects over the years).

        • I see. It sounds like this anime might not turn out well…

      • Nishizaki and him have been arguing for decades. They hate each other..

        • Thank you for mentioning this.
