Tezuka's Buddha and Princess Knight Anime Movies!

More Tezuka movies are on the way!

Tezuka Productions has announced that both Tezuka's Buddha and Princess Knight (Ribbon no Kishi) will be getting the feature film treatment in the form of two new anime movies. These films could be released as early as next year.

Princess Knight has been animated before through a 1960's anime series as well as an earlier movie in 1994. But Tezuka's manga interpretation of Buddha has never been animated. It will be very interesting to see how these films turn out. I'll be keeping an eye on them!

I have not read Pricness Knight or seen the anime adaption, but I have read Buddha and its an extraordinary epic that runs for 8 volumes. I'm not sure how they can condense that into a single film, but it would be interesting to see an anime version in some form.
