A new Initial D movie is in the works, and the release date has just been announced. It will hit movie theaters in Japan on August 23, 2014. According to Initial D World, the film will be the first of a trilogy. Initial D Legend 1: Awaken, will be a retelling of the 1998 anime’s first stage in which Takumi Fujiwara goes from bored tofu delivery driver to touge racer in his Toyota AE86.
Two trailers have been released. The first shows more action, including some drifting of the RedSuns’ FD Mazda RX-7. The animation style is significantly more dynamic compared to that of blocky, computer generated polygons circa 1998.
You can view the most recent trailer here, showing the release date with a couple of quick shots of a drifting AE86. These are unrelated to the Final Stage anime series that will focus on the last few chapters of the manga.
