So question. This is only a movie of the first 2 episodes? Are they gauging interest to see if they are going to do a series? or is a Series greenlit? I'm a bit confused as to how this is going to work out.


You are right that the first "movie" is the first two episodes put together. It is 50 minutes long and will debut in theaters. The DVD release of this "movie" will be on May 25th. They plan on releasing all 7 "movies" in a similar way. As far as I know, they aren't waiting for sales numbers before completing the series.

At some point after all the movies have been screened, they'll air this on TV. I don't believe there is a definitive date for when this will happen, but it may be early next year.

No, this version contains only the first two episodes of the new series. This isn't going to be a condensed version like the original Uchuu Senkan Yamato movie.

Aaaaah thanks for the explanation. I was hearing "whole series" in a couple of places then read the link you provided and saw "2 episodes" and that left me scratching my head I would love to own it so hopefully when it's all done we can buy the set I know even from the 10 minutes they showed. .. it was just like the original... minus the droplets of blood floating across Avatar's face when they started to lose cabin pressure... I looks friggin' awesome and I can't wait to see it all! I wish CR would air it though the likelihood of that is slim to none

They way I had read on ANN

Movie first then and then to anime version, not a series of movies (unless that's changed).

Never saw the Japanese originals... Star Blazers is one of the few anime I treasure as a dub since was only way to see it in late 70s on TV (and had no clue about anime then). Seiyuu cast is fab so really looking forward to seeing this.

The complete first episode has been popping up on some sites and I have to say, it looks fabulous.

The trailer for 2nd movie is up. Fans will recognize clips from "Jupiter's Floating Continent" and "The Reflex Gun". You also get to see the warp and wave motion gun in action. :)

Bandai has put up a 9 minute clip from the July movie release. It covers the first test warp from Mars to Jupiter.

Better graphics, better tech, and even better physics descriptions. All in all, the upgrade is great. I can't wait to see the whole series. :)
