It has been announced that XEBEC is animating the Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Star-Voyaging Ark anime film for a December 6, 2014 release. Unlike the previous Space Battleship Yamato 2199 event screenings in theaters, the new film will have a full nationwide release.

Before the new film opens, XEBEC is assembling a compilation film titled, Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Voyage of Remembrance, from the seven previous parts. It will play in event screenings similar to the earlier limited Space Battleship Yamato 2199 screenings, starting on October 11, 2014.
