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.
Central Park Media released Negadon in North America.
