New Robocon Revival Movie Announced


New Robocon Revival Movie Announced

Ganbareiwa!! Robocon, a movie for the 45 year old Robocon series, has been announced for July 2020.

On April 1st, Toei announced via their Twitter account for the Robocon series that a new movie would be coming out later this summer, titled Ganbareiwa!! Robocon. A teaser image was shown, putting the two previous iterations of Robocon at either side of a new design in silhouette.

Created by Shotaro Ishinomori, Ganbare!! Robocon debuted in 1974, close to the debuts of Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, and ran for 118 episodes until its end in 1977. The story follows the titular Robocon, a robot student at the Gantz’ Robot Academy that aids humans as part of his studies. He often makes mistakes, but tries his best for the sake of all robots.

It would be rebooted in 1999 as Moero!! Robocon, running until January 23rd 2000, one week before the premiere of Kamen Rider in the Heisei era.

The producer of this new film, Shinichiro Shirakura, had this to say about the new movie:

“Kamen Rider Zero-One, which depicts the world of working robots, was a stepping stone in reviving Robocon!”

The movie is set for a July 31st release date, with an MX4D screening.
