The North American distributor Discotek has announced that it has licensed the first Fist of the North Star movie. Discotek will release Toei Animation's remastered version of Toyoo Ashida's 1986 fighting action film on its Eastern Star label in May. The release will include Japanese and English soundtracks. Streamline Pictures had previously released the first film version of Buronson and Tetsuo Hara's manga. A live-action film and three more animated films have since been released.

Discotek Media launched in 2005 with an announcement that it will release anime as well as live-action films.
