New Trailer For Space Pirate Captain Harlock CG Movie

Back in 2010, Toei Animation unveiled the first glimpse of their CGI reboot of Space Pirate Captain Harlock.

Three years later, the first official trailer has appeared online, giving a glimpse of what the studio has planned for one of anime's most iconic characters.

The Captain Harlock manga by Leiji Matsumoto debuted in 1977 and his adventures were adapted into an anime the following year.

The series was released in Europe in the early 80s, making the good Captain a pioneering anime ambassador.

The new movie is directed by Shinji Aramaki who directed the CG Appleseed in 2004 and Appleseed: Ex Machina in 2007.

Harutoshi Fukui is writing the script and with a budget of US$30 million, the film is Toei Animation's most ambitious project.

The movie is due to be released in Japan in Autumn 2013. Fingers crossed for a UK distributor!
