The live-action feature film adaption of Tatsunoko Productions’ animated creation, Hurricane Polymar, might be closer to premiere than you think. Officially announced earlier by Tatsunoko in November, the teaser trailer made its debut yesterday. The film is set to release in May, 2017 and will coincide with the 55th anniversary of Tatsunoko Productions, an animation company founded by anime pioneer Tatsuo Yoshida and brothers Kenji and Toyoharu (who has written under the pen name “Ippei Kuri”). Among the many titles Tasunoko has been responsible for are Mach Go Go Go (Speed Racer), Science Ninja Team Gatchaman (Battle of the Planets, G-Force), and Tekkaman: The Space Knight.
