For fans of the classic anime TV series and various movies based around Space Battleship Yamato (or Starblazers if you were in the USA), there’s a new follow-on double movie coming to Japan, Space Battleship Yamato 2205, with the first part of the dilm duology hitting cinemas on the 8th October 2021.
For those of you who like modelling, Bandai will be supporting the new series with a massive range of kits, too.
No news of an English-language dub, yet, but heck, that’s what sub-titles are for! Or you can always learn Japanese by October.
Here’s the official blurb:
Three years have passed since the battle with the White Comet Empire. President Desler, who has been searching for a new mother star to save the endangered Gamirasu people, finds a star that meets the conditions in a section of the Milky Way galaxy. But it is within the territory of a mighty interstellar nation. The territorial dispute that breaks out in the galaxy inevitably involves the Earth, which has a security treaty with Gamirasu. Susumu Kodai sets out on a training voyage with new crew members in preparation for the upcoming emergency as they face a truly horrific new foe!
