The official website for anime made by studio Bone, Eureka Seven, revealed Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution, the three-part film project based on first 50-episode Tv series aired in 2005/2006 today. The tune “Acperience 7” in the clip is newly provided by German electronic music duo Hardfloor.
The trilogy will again feature the two protagonists of the first TV anime series, Renton Thurston and Eureka, but will also introduce the “First Summer of Love” incident that occurred 10 years before the TV anime story and was never directly illustrated in it. The site says that it will not be a remake or a remix, and all dialogues will be reconstructed. With newly filmed and produced footage, the trilogy will show a totally new ending “nobody has ever known.”
All of main staff members of the TV series, Tomoki Kyoda (general director), Dai Sato (screenplay writer), and Kenichi Yosida (character designer) are set to return. It is, however, still not confirmed if the original voice cast members will reprise their roles (Takeshi Aono, who voiced Renton’s grandfather Axel, past away in 2012). The first film is scheduled to be released before the end of this year, then the second and third will follow in 2018 and 2019.
