Captain Harlock CGI Movie Announced

Picture 1Toei Animation has announced a computer animated feature based on the classic manga series Space Pirate Captain Harlock.  The film will have a budget of $30 US, which is comfortably on the  high-end when it comes to anime.

Captain Harlock (sometimes Herlock) was created by Leiji Matsumoto in 1977.  It resides in the author’s famous ‘Matsumotoverse,’ a shared universe which also includes Galaxy Express 999, Queen Emeraldas, Space Battleship Yamamoto (Star Blazers) and numerous other series.


Harlock‘s first anime adaptation was a 1978 TV series, which was recently licensed by Discotek Media.

There was also a traditionally animated film entitled Arcadia of My Youth, released by Animeigo, and another TV series in 2002, Captain Herlock: Endless Odyssey.
