More Gatchaman Concept Art

Last week Imagi brought us a batch of concept art for their upcoming computer animated big screen adaptation of Gatchaman. These new photos give us a better look at some of the characters. I love the subdued lighting. I really think Imagi could be making something really incredible with this one. Click on the images to enlarge.

Set in a future world grappling with enviormental and technological issues, the story focuses on five reluctant heroes whose remarkable genetic code makes them Earth's only hope of defeating extra-terrestrial invaders. Gatchaman was created in the 1970's, airing as a Japanese television show called Science Ninja Team Gatchaman. It later aired in the U.S. as Battle of the Planets and G-Force. Scripted by Paul Dini (Lost, Batman: The Animated Series, Tiny Toon Adventures), the feature will focus on the formation of the Science Ninja Team and will have a slightly dark possibly PG-13 tone. Gatchaman is scheduled to hit theaters on April 3rd 2009.
