After the success of the Space Battleship YAMATO live action movie, mechanical designer Makoto Kobayashi revealed at Anime Expo that he is working on a remake of the popular space opera anime series.
Space Battleship YAMATO took place on the year 2199, when the Earth has been under radioactive siege from the Gamilas Empire for five years. Earth's population has moved underground to escape the bombardment, but the contamination is slowly penetrating to reach them. The crew sets out on a journey to the planet Iscandar to acquire a device that can heal the ravaged Earth before it is too late.
The popular 1970's anime series spawned two anime series sequels, two video projects, and six films. The anime was dubbed and partly rewritten in English as Star Blazers.
The Space Battleship Yamato anime remake is set to be released next year.
