A batch of behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Patlabor: The Next Generation.

And here are some interesting points about this whole project:

  • The project is split into two parts. The first part is a 12 part series of 48 minutes each with a 10 minute “Episode Zero” prologue to be released during 2014, and a full length (around 100 minutes) theatrical feature is due for release in 2015.
  • Kenji Kawai is going to be in charge of the music score for both the series and the film.
  • The project is not a remake of the original but a new story set in Tokyo, 2013.
  • Noa Izumi, Asuma Shinohara and the rest of the original cast are not going to be part of this project since this is a “next generation” series, although in my opinion, the new characters do seem to have certain resemblances to their original counterparts.
  • However, Chief Shigeo Shiba seems to be still alive and he’s going to be portrayed by his voice actor himself, Mr. Shigeru Chiba.
