Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Well it is coming out more or less on the 40th Anniversary of the original air date in 1974. October 6th being the first date the show aired in 1974. The compilation movie comes out on October 11th of 2014, the closest Saturday after the Anniversary date.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Yamato2199.net updated with a new promotional picture for the new film coming out in December.




Upate:

A new trailer:







And a revised story synopsis.

"In 2199.

After reaching its destination, Iscandar, and receiving the Cosmo Reverse System, Yamato prepares to leave the Great Magellanic Galaxy.

But as they reach the outer edge of the LMG, it encounters a mysterious task force. The commander identifies himself as Goran Dagamu of the Gutaba Expeditionary Rapid Assault Force, under supervision of the Great Capital City, "Gatlantis", and he demands Yamato to surrender.

Yamato wants to avoid the battle and hurry back to Earth but Dagamu's onslaught increases as he unleashes a power of a beam weapon capable of transcending space.

The name of his weapon - the Impact Flame Gun. It is the latest weapon of proud Gatlantis.

Yamato is saved in the nick of time by warping, but they wander into a different space bathed in a pale grey light.

As if controled by an outside will, Yamato's rudder turns, and they are invited to a mysterious planet.

Kodai, Kiryu, Sawamura, Niimi and five of Aihara's men descend to the planet to collect information. Once on the ground, they come across something that shouldn't be there, an ancient war ship (boat).

Dagamu warps after Yamato by following its space wake, reaching the grey colored space. The planet shining in front of his eyes, where Yamato was invited, is the very treasure planet he had been looking for.

Dagamu heads for the planet with his Flame Gun in order to burn the annoying Yamato."

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

I was going to post this myself. It really is an interquel which will presumably set up an S2 adaptation. What a strange way to set it up.

As long as we get a retelling of the Comet Empire storyline in the same vein of the original storyline (which I hope will happen if the film is financially successful when released) - I'm fine with how they set it up as this creative team has been doing an amazing job reworking and retelling the SBY saga so far.

I just hope that when the Blu-Ray of the film is released, it'll be done with an english subtitle track like the SBY 2199 Episode Blu-Rays were.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Well so far all the Yamato 2199 stuff has come with English subtitles and they've been producing the North American release under the Star Blazers 2199 name, adding Spanish subtitles as well as English. So they at least know there is a market of some kind in the English speaking world.

They also must know how popular the Second Series was in the States and other places.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

I just don't get why they couldn't have just set it after the ending of S1, rather than make up a "new" adventure in between... I guess 25 and 26? I suppose having their journey home be a cakewalk would be too easy, given what they had to go through for the rest of the season.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Perhaps it starts with them reporting in upon getting back to Earth about a threat they ran into on the way home (between episodes 24 and 25 as the are still leaving the Magellenic Cloud with three months to kill before making Balun). Thus placing part of the story after the events and providing incentive for the Earth Admiralty to build a new fleet of wave motion gun equipped ships (regardless of what agreement they had with Starsha) as they will have encountered two races with similar or perhaps even more devastating versions of the Wave Motion Gun (Dessler's gun and now this Flame Gun).

It would explain why there are a few images that don't fit in with what would take place during the voyage. There is a shot of Admiral Hijikata (Gideon) in close up. It is him rather than Okita (Avatar) as he lacks Okita's full beard and has grey hair rather than white (also the distinctive sideburns). Also there is a shot of several guns and helmets in a place that can see is a red Earth. Those would be graves of Space Marines on the Moon. Yamato flew over the Moon on its way to Earth, so perhaps it is an establishing shot, or foreshadowing the coming war with the Comet Empire were the Space Marines will play an important part?

Because this is a time-period that was skipped over in the original, leaving the opportunity to fill it in.

I guess that works. It just seems odd to me that they'd set the film this way, since it also makes the denoument of the series a bit strange since after encountering this new threat, the sudden catharsis of a recovered Earth and the death of Okita don't really fit any more. Although I would have to imagine that there would be some post-26 scenes in the movie as well.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Well they would encounter the Comet Empire threat in the two months between leaving Iscandar and arriving at Balun. While the enemy might have been powerful, they ran into Dessler again after Balun and the weight of those events for a few more months before the return to Earth as that would likely distract them a little from the Comet Empire fleet they encountered four to five months earlier. Also it was likely made clear to them that the Gamilas are fighting this other race still, so maybe the crew figures they have time (its not like the new enemy knows were Earth is....right).

It would come up at the debreffing by Admiral Hijikata though after episode 26 (but still in December of 2199). And that would probably send him warning bells that something else is out there and Earth needs to perpare. Thus setting up the building of Space Battleship Andromeda for the next film/series.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

The compilation film "Voyage of Rememberance" will have new footage added according to Yamato2199.net

http://yamato2199.net/info/special/169/

At least stuff to correct errors in the Battle of the Rainbow Cluster.

The film will also have a North American release later in Los Angeles on October 24th.

So, wait - are they doing a new standalone film with a new story that takes place during the Yamato's return to Earth from Iscandar (which is what I originally thought was reported in Japan); or is it now just a compilation film taken from the 26 episodes with some new footage created here and there?

Or are there going to be two films - one the compilation, and the second an original 'new' (within the existing 2199 continuity) story?

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

There are going to be two films:

"Voyage of Rememberance" is the compilation film that is to retell Yamato 2199's story (the 26 episodes) in one film. It comes out in October for the 40th Anniversary of Space Battleship Yamato.

The second film is called "Ark of the Stars". It is a new film set during the return trip from Iscandar, where Yamato will encounter elements of the Comet Empire's fleet. This film comes out in December.
