Space Battleship Yamato 2199 Chapter 7: Soshite Kan wa Iku (And Now the Warship Comes) will compile episodes 23 through 26 of the TV series remake, and will open in 16 theaters in Japan on August 24. Voice actress and singer Nana Mizuki is performing the ending theme song.
The theatrical screening will not screen part of the installment "to maintain an acceptable level of quality for the viewers."
The film was scheduled to ship on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in Japan on September 25, but the release was delayed until October 25. The staff had planned to sell advance copies of the Blu-ray Disc version during the volume's August 24-September 6 theatrical run, but the time required to manufacture the Blu-ray Discs and DVDs is preventing this.
Production I.G and its partners screened the first episode of the television anime with an English dub at Anime Expo last month. The web simulcast for the anime had announced in April that the series is launching overseas under the title Star Blazers 2199.
The first episode of the television series premiered in Japan on April 7.
