The Japanese company CoMix Wave Films has announced on Thursday that Jun Awazu, the director of the computer-animated Negadon: The Monster from Mars film, is directing a new CG film called Planzet for a 2010 opening in Japan. The story is set in 2053 when mankind faces a crisis. A teaser trailer will be unveiled on the film's official website in six days.
Like Negadon, Planzet is being created with many homages and nods to the Japanese special-effects films of the 20th century. CoMix Wave produced both Negadon and Planzet as well as the works of anime auteur Makoto Shinkai.
