Theatrical Trailer For SPACE PIRATE CAPTAIN HARLOCK Reaches Ramming Speed

, Founder and Editor
Aramaki Shinji's upcoming big screen adaptation of Space Pirate Captain Harlock is, without a doubt, one of the more anticipated events of the anime world. The Appleseed director has recruited talent from the Square Enix ranks for a CGI animated update of the hugely popular character and the results are looking intriguing.

It is the year 2977 and the world as we knew it has ended. The Gaia Corporation rule the galaxy after the devastating Homecoming War, fought by people desperate to return to Earth.

Having been exiled and vilified, Captain Harlock and the crew of the Arcadia, a Death Shadow Class battle cruiser, are now the only hope for mankind to discover the truth that Gaia are hiding and to return to the home kept from them for centuries.
With the Japanese release coming soon a pair of previous teasers has now been followed by a full theatrical trailer. Take a look below and let us know what you think of this updated Captain.

    Will this be getting a western release?

    As unfortunately always....real actors would have made that a 100 times better. The character animation just looks dead.
