Time to Program Your GPS for Iscandar

Following the success of 2009's anime feature Space Battleship Yamato: Resurrection and 2010's live action movie, it's time to remake the space opera institution. 

 

Anime News Network reports that mechanical designer Makoto Kobayashi (Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ, Giant Robo, Last Exile, Space Battleship Yamato Resurrection)  revealed at  Anime Expo's closing ceremonies that he is working on a remake of Space Battleship Yamato for release next year.

 

The series, localized for English as Star Blazers, follows the defeated, but unbroken survivors of humanity's war with the alien Gamilas who pull World War II's Yamato from the seafloor and use the retrofitted Space Battleship to search for a cure for Earth's radiation poisoning.
