Appleseed's Shinji Aramaki directs CG film of Leiji Matsumoto's sci-fi classic

Toei presented an English-narrated international teaser trailer for its tentatively titled Space Pirate Captain Harlock computer-graphics film on Thursday evening, and various news sources updated their articles on the project to include the teaser.

In Leiji Matsumoto's original 1977-79 manga, the title character rebels against Earth's inept government and fights for humanity with his crew of 40 aboard the invincible space battleship Arcadia. The manga inspired a 1978-1979 television anime series, a few features, and the sequel Arcadia of My Youth: Endless Orbit SSX.

Writer Harutoshi Fukui (Mobile Suit Gundam UC novels, live-action Bōkoku no Aegis) reconstructed the story to reflect the themes of modern society, and Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) is directing with the latest filmmaking technology in the style of a Hollywood production. This film has Toei Animation's highest production budget ever at the equivalent of over 30 million U.S. dollars.

The film will open in Japan this fall.
