This. Also, are 'movies in 3D' even popular in Japan?

Well, Amano does have a pretty solid fanbase in Europe and the Americas, you know.

I wasn't assuming that this was going to be in 3D (a la Avatar), but I can't really imagine Amano's work in CG. Oh wait, I can: those CG intros to Final Fantasy IV-VI released on the PSX were horribly gaudy. Unless this is some kind of CG blend of 2D art — which it sounds like it won't be — then I worry that this will end up being some hideous crap, but we can only wait and see.

3D? Seriously, no. Just had too many of them released since Avatar came to the movies already. No more!

I'm definitely not a fan of 3D, but Amano is involved in this one, so I'll give it a try.
