Toei Animation Resurrects ‘Mazinger Z’

First Footage of the Feature with Go Nagai!

Mazinger Z, Japan’s major manga series, is making its big comeback on the international animation scene. Toei Animation is producing a new opus of adventures for the famous robot. The manga written and illustrated by Go Nagai in the 70s was already adapted into an anime series, but this time it’s hitting the big screen as a feature film in Europe and around the globe.

The film will add a new chapter to the adventures of the super robot. As the world faces a new threat, Mazinger aka “Iron Castle” stands up with all his might!

My beloved Mazinger Z is making a comeback. 45 years after its birth and 50 years since I started my career as a manga artist, this is truly a year to commemorate. I’m very glad that I’m able to bring Mazinger Z back. After all, it is beloved in different places all over the world. It’s my sincere wish to bring this movie to the global audience with gratitude to all the fans who’ve supported Mazinger Z all over the world through the years. Now, onward to the global stage!Go Nagai
