Robots! Mop! People! Longer, Live-Action PATLABOR: THE NEXT GENERATION Teaser
Feast your hungry eyes upon more than 60 seconds from the upcoming live-action Patlabor: The Next Generation project, thanks to a tipster who alerted us to the teaser.
Our own Hugo Ozman previously informed us that the project "will consist of a 7-part television series in 2014 and a feature film in 2015, with original creator Oshii Mamoru directing the feature film as well as some of the series' episodes. Long a favorite amongst anime fans, the project is eagerly anticipated by a lot of people.
"It has previously been announced that the new project will not be a remake of earlier stories, but will be telling the story of the next generation of Patlabors. The production cost is reported to be 20 million US dollars, which includes the creation of two 8-meter tall giant robots."
And that's as much as I know. This teaser has a little bit of robot action, and a bit more of the characters involved, and then there's that unexplained. Watch it all below.
