A remake for the classic series “Space Battleship Yamato 2199” is in production and with that production comes a trailer of the upcoming movie. According to Crunchyroll the movie is set to be, basically, the first two episodes of an upcoming series pasted together.
To quote Crunchyroll –
More specific details have been confirmed about the film by the Yamato Crew site in that it is actually the first two episodes of the forthcoming TV series edited together, with the “film” serving as the preview screening for the series ahead of its TV airing later that month.
The anime series is set to be released on the 12th of April, 2012 (Japan). It is likely too early to get a confirmation on release over here in AUS as there are way too many factors to take into account. For this one, we’ll just have to wait and see.
