Gatchaman – Its Back

Our cartoon from the 80s is back on track, back in April I posted that Imagi was in bad shape and that this project was permenantly on hold. It seems they have restructured themselves and the project is going full steam ahead, they even released a new very cool trailer for the movie, its a bit rough around the edges but still pretty good. The release is now aimed for 2011, I’m looking forward to it and I hope it does justice to the history of this cartoon.

Gatchaman

Gatchaman

We all remember Gatchaman from back in the 80s, or the other name would be Battle of The Planets. It is one of the cartoons that we ended up growing up with, and unknowingly one my first introductions to Japanese Anime. Its very sad but Imagi the company that made Astro Boy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie seems to have shutdown its LA office and is barely getting by, making this project in the dead in the water. Astro Boy just didn’t get what it needed to survive and so the company has fell under the water as well which is very sad, from this trailer that has leaked onto the net it look to be an amazing movie, which isn’t going to be made.
