The official film poster for the upcoming Space Pirate Captain Harlock (キャプテンハーロック) film had finally been revealed! Reported to cost an equivalent of 30 million U.S. dollars, this is the highest production budget ever released by Toei Animation!
Writer Harutoshi Fukui (Mobile Suit Gundam UC) reconstructed the story to reflect the themes of modern society, and Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) is directing with the latest filmmaking technology. An official website is also scheduled to be opened.
Written by Leiji Matsumoto back in 1977-79, it tells the story of the titular Captain Harlock, who rebels against Earth's inept government and fights for humanity with his crew of 40 aboard the invincible space battleship Arcadia.
Space Pirate Captain Harlock premieres in Japan this Autumn 2013.
