'Space Brothers' Film Reveals Visual, Plot Outline
With ticket presales about to hit in Japan for the August 9th, 2014 debut of the Space Brothers Number Zero film, the official site updated this week with a new key visual for the work. The piece was created by the original creator, Chuya Koyama, who spent time working on the script for the film that caused the manga to take a bit of a hiatus previously. With the film working on the past a good bit here with what it wants to accomplish, it also revealed that Brian Jay was going to be an integral part of the storyline, which will definitely make fans happy since it’ll touch upon the Eddie and Brian story that became important during the final episodes of the TV series that recently ended.
Plot concept: The film will explore the theme of bereavement and how people recover after losing a loved one, and how friends can support each other during this time of need. Hibito is confused as to why Brian Jay chose him, a rookie astronaut, to be his backup, and voices his worries that he isn’t talented enough to fulfill such a role. Brian then leaves Hibito with the response: “You need to experience this tough and fun chance to your heart’s content” before he goes to the moon. Then the tragic CES-43 accident ensures that the two will never meet again. After the accident, NASA begins to reconsider manned space missions.
