It's rare that classic anime shows get proper updates by a new creative team. Usually we're stuck with piss-poor adaptations like Dragon Ball: Evolution which leaves a taste of disgust amongst fans. With Imagi's upcoming adaptation of the classic anime Gatchaman they've seem to have to captured the essence of the series while giving it a fresh look.
If you're not familiar with Gatchaman it's a popular anime series from Tatsunoko, the famous anime company who also brought us Speed Racer amongst other classics. The show revolves around a group of heroes as they stand up against alien invaders. It may not be the most original or gripping plot but the series had a lot of charm and nice art direction.
The team at Imagi seemed to have done quite a good job updating Gatchaman based on the teaser trailer that has leaked online. I don't know about everyone else but I find it highly refreshing that we seem to be getting a CG movie that isn't overly kid friendly and seems to be slightly geared towards adults. It also helps that Paul Dini (Batman: The Animated Series) is writing the movie as it should inspire hope that the film won't be filled with fart jokes.
Gatchaman is currently planned for a 2010 release. To see some additional images check out Imagi's page for the movie here.
