Third Space Battleship Yamato 2202 Movie Gets New Trailer

It’s time to follow the mighty space battleship on one more journey.

Earlier today, the official Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love (Uchū Senkan Yamato 2202: Ai no Senshi-tachi) anime website updated with a new trailer. The 60-second promo promotes the upcoming third film, subtitled Junai-hen (Pure Love Chapter).

Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love will hit Japanese theaters on October 14. Twenty-five theaters are carrying the film, which is up from the previous movie’s twenty theater reach. Folks who can’t hit the box office will be able to rent the feature via streaming services on opening day.

Much like the previous run, folks who attend the screenings will be able to purchase a special edition Blu-Ray of the film.

Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love – Pure Love Chapter is the third of seven planned films, which tell the tale of the Yamato after its safe arrival at Iscandar.

Nobuyoshi Habara (D.N.Angel, Fafner) is directing the project at Xebec, with Nobuteru Yuki (Vision of Escaflowne, Orange) providing character designs. Harutoshi Fukui (Mobile Suit Gundam UC) is in charge of series composition for the movies.
