Masashi Imagawa, a CG artist and generalist at Industrial Light & Magic, recreated the Attack of Titan anime series as a live-action film.
According to Anime Senpai, Imagawa uploaded a half-minute clip of an Attack on Titan fan live-action film he created in his spare time on Twitter. “About two years ago, I did the live-action Attack on Titan with a friend as a hobby,” Imagawa said. “There are a lot of live-action adaptations of Japanese manga and anime, but I personally don’t know if there’s a need for a CG adaptation that’s completely faithful to the original.”
The inspiration behind the fan-made Attack on Titan Live-Action
Imagawa is set in the Battle of Shiganshina District, where the Beast Titan was introduced. Imagawa shared a behind-the-scenes clip of him animating the film that went viral by fans in a follow-up tweet. Imagawa said, “Instead of just turning everything into realistic CG, I hand-drawn the thunder and wire moving in three dimensions frame by frame to retain the animated expression.” As expected, Imagawa blew up Attack on Titan fans worldwide with a stunning CG rendition of their favorite series.
As the CG artist for Industrial Light & Magic, Imagawa worked on the live-action Star Wars series playing Ahsoka for Disney+. The film stars Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker’s Jedi Padawan. Doctor Who star David Tennant will reprise his role as Jedi Huyyang in the limited series. In addition to Ahsoka, Imagawa also participated in the production of The Mandalorian Season 3.
Ahsoka will air in August on Disney+. The first trailer for the limited series premiered at Star Wars Celebration 2023. An upcoming live-action Star Wars movie from Dave Filoni, the series’ host. TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars in 2008, will tie the events of Ahsoka, The Mandalorian, and Boba Fett’s Book together.
Attack on Titan is currently available on streaming services like Crunchyroll and Hulu. The first season of Attack on Titan Final Season Part 3 aired in March. The second half will air in late 2023.
