Get ready for Space Battleship Yamato 2205!
The official website for the Space Battleship Yamato anime franchise has now posted a 30-second teaser trailer for the first part, “TAKE OFF”, of its next installment- Space Battleship Yamato 2205: Aratanaru Tabidachi / The New Voyage.
It was previously revealed that the science fiction battleship franchise has two films planned for the Uchū Senkan Yamato 2205: Aratanaru Tabidachi (Space Battleship Yamato 2205: The New Voyage) sequel project.
The 30-second teaser clip highlights the return of Dessler. Harutoshi Fukui, who continues to serve as the series composition writer/screenplay writer from 2202, says, “2205 is a film that can be said to be a double starring of Kodai and Dessler.”
Space Battleship Yamato 2205 will be produced in two parts, and its first part, “TAKE OFF”, will be screened in 36 theaters in Japan from October 8, 2021. A special edition Blu-Ray Disc of the film will be immediately available for purchase at the same time as the theater opening date with a separate Blu-Ray Disc and DVD release slated for November 26.
The 30-second teaser video did show some returning familiar faces from previous installments of the remakes, however, the clip also introduces some new characters, including Ryusuke Domon (CV: Tasuku Hatanaka) from the 1980-1981 third original TV series, Space Battleship Yamato III.
Amongst the confirmed returning cast members are Daisuke Ono as Susumu Kodai, Houko Kuwashima as Yuki Mori, Houchu Ohtsuka as Shirō Sanada, Kōichi Yamadera as Abelt Dessler, and Kikuko Inoue as Starsha Iscandar. Nobuhiko Okamoto also returns as Tasuke Tokugawa.
For the new characters, Tasuku Hatanaka is Ryūsuke Domon, Tomo Muranaka is Miyako Kyōzuka, Kento Itō is Shigeru Sakamoto, and Wataru Hatano is Heiji Bandō.
The story for this first part of the movie is set three years after Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love and includes all of the elements from the original 1979 TV special, Space Battle Ship Yamato: Aratanaru Tabidachi / The New Voyage and subsequent stories in the series. Kodai now commands the battleship Yamato with a new crew as they face another battle.
The compilation film for the Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2199 and Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2202 anime is now open in Japan.
Will you be racing to the cinema to see this film in the fall?
