Space Battleship Yamato 2199 [宇宙戦艦ヤマト2199] is a remake of the original 'Space Battleship Yamato' TV series from 1974 using modern animation techniques and some storyline changes. The series is being directed by Izubuchi Yutaka [出渕裕] (RahXephon) with animation production handled by AIC (Now and Then, Here and There, Ookami-kakushi) and Xebec [ジーベック] (Heroic Age, Rinne no Lagrange).

Since 2012, Space Battleship Yamato 2199 has been released in an ongoing series of movies, but starting in April 2013 these will be broadcast on TV as weekly episodes on MBS.

The story is set in the year 2199. The Earth has been reduced to a wasteland by aliens known as the Gamilas, forcing mankind to live in underground cities. Many fear that the human race will not be able to survive much longer. But just when all hope seems lost, Kodai Susumu and Shima Daisuke retrieve a capsule sent to them by friendly aliens known as the Iscandar.

The capsule tells them that mankind's last hope lies on the planet Iscandar, and also provides blueprints to construct the Space Battleship Yamato - a ship that will be able to make the trip to planet Iscandar and return with a new hope for the human race.
