SPACE PIRATE CAPTAIN HARLOCK Gets Fall 2013 Release And Teaser Trailer

Back in 2010, Toei Animation previewed a 4-minute pilot trailer for a potential CG animated adaptation of Space Pirate Captain Harlock at the Tokyo International Anime Fair. Fortunately for fans of the classic property, it seems there has been progress on the production since then.  The Japanese media has confirmation on a fall release and a teaser trailer has been unveiled. 

Based on a space opera manga by Leiji Matsumoto, the film version will be helmed by Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed EX Machina), scripted by Fukui Harutoshi and Marza Animation Planet will produce the animation.  The total production cost is budgeted at $30 million, the most expensive ever in Toei Animation.

You'll find the minute-long teaser embedded below.
