Star Blazers was my first experience with Anime and a total change from the cartoons that I grew up watching on network TV. Star Blazers is an English dubbed version of a series in Japan called Space Battleship Yamato. I was 9 or 10 at the time, but I was immediately drawn to the epic story arc and the more mature themes that it had. It’s probably the main reason I’m a science fiction fan today.
I was pretty excited to see a live movie version being made in Japan that seems exactly like how I remembered it but with amazing special effects. Hopefully there will be a subtitled version we can see in movie theaters or on Blu-ray.

Another trailer that needs to be seen just for the theme song!
