For those who are extra special nerdy, Gatchaman is something precious, to be treasured. We showed you footage a few months back of a trailer for a supposed full-length CG film in production from Imagi Studios. It was a sort of funeral sermon — the studio was closing its doors, and it appeared that we’d never see the feature film about high-tech bird-themed ninjas (ah, Japan) who battle the dark forces of the evil Galactor and try to save the earth. It started out as an anime cartoon called Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, and was sloppily imported to the US with the name G-Force.
Well, it looks like we might be in luck. According to Twitch, the studio is back up and running, has done some management re-structuring, and production on the film has resumed. This is good news, folks — the production looks pretty cool. Here’s some newer footage that we didn’t show last time:
Here’s the earlier trailer we showed you back in April:
Sweet. Between this and the trailer for Space Battleship Yamato, I’m very pleased.
