From my understanding there were three projects setup in the late 00s. A Sequel movie trilogy. A live action movie, and a remake of the original series.

Supposedly the remake was suppose to air first, but it got technical and more detailed than whoever though the idea up originally thought. The sequel film (Yamato Resurrection) came out first in 2009 (It had been in development hell since the early 90s). This film takes place about 17 years after "Final Yamato" and has mostly a new crew. There is reportedly a "Part Two" in production.

Then the Live Action movie came out in 2010. No suggestion of a sequel to that was ever announced, nor does one seem likely.

Then in 2012 and 2013, the remake of the first series comes out. Yamato 2199 is doing fairly well so far.

And yes they will visit the Bee Planet again in Chapter 5, but the story is going to be a whole lot different. Something about ancient civilizations and subspace portals or warp gates from the tiny paragraph on the episodes.
Ithekro, whatever happened to that live action movie? I've never seen anything about it being released on disc here in the US, though I've read there's copies available in other countries...?

A passable all-regions version of the DVD from Sarawak Media Corp. was being sold by an outfit called "LOTO-SURPLUS" on Amazon.
You can buy a region-free Blu-Ray straight from Japan. Problem is; no english subtitles on it.

[If they offered a version of the 2010 Yamato Live Action film with English subs; I'd have snapped it up in a heartbeat - I found a fully english subbed version on Youtube - but only stabdard Def video quality - which I managed to watch before they had it removed.)

Found one myself on eBay back in 2011. They're out there, and the translation is quite good. Not a single "all your base" moment in the entire film.

Well Chapter 4 was released in theater starting about five days ago. They were selling limited edition Bluerays of the chapter in the twelve theaters it was showing in. They have sold out entirely already.

The Region A Blu-ray's advertised as having English subtitles, though.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

I have not seen a Region A version BD of the Live Action film Space Batleship Yamato that had english subtitles (I've seen fansub versions on DVD though).

Space Battleship Yamato 2199 does come with english subtitles on the BD nomally (I cannot confirm if they are Region A or Region Free BD since they do not have any indication marking on them as to what BD region it is coded for. All I know is that it works on Region A BD players).

The CD Japan listing for all the Yamato 2199 Blu-Rays to date (and they are the actual BDs produced for sale in Japan as I've gotten 'first print' items included with them because I pre-order so early) state the are in fact 'Region Free'.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Interesting. That means Englsih speakers in Austrialia and the UK (or anywhere for that matter) could purchase Yamato 2199 and play it with the subtitles.


In a story note: It has been suggested that the humans started the war with the Gamilas by firing first under orders (an order Okita did not obey, but someone else did). Though I do wonder about Gamilas intentions when entering a solar system with multiple warships in a first contact situation.

Sometimes your hated nemesis if you're looking for a legit non-bootlegged copy of an anime though.

Especially when the source is a Chinese vendor. There's an old IT joke:

Q: "How many legal copies of Microsoft Office (latest version) have been sold in China?"

A: "One."

Yeah, bootlegging is seemingly quite rampant there and a lot of them even have the balls to have a company name and logo.

Chapter 4 ordered. It come out in a day or so. I should get my copy by the middle of next week.

Amazon.jp price seems "reasonable" at about $86 with shipping. ($64 for the Blu-ray with $22 shipping to the US).
