The new Space Battleship Yamato 2199 television anime series will be 26 episodes long, and it will be split into seven films for advance screenings at events. The first two episodes will be shown as the first "film" on April 7, before the television series itself premieres. The next six "film" screenings will each be made of four television episodes. The new project is based on the classic 1974-1975 space opera anime series.
The anime's main cast — Takayuki Sugo, Daisuke Ono, Kenichi Suzumura, and Houko Kuwashima — will appear at a "launch ceremony" event on February 18 with some of the anime's staffers.
