When this film was originally made, it was meant to put an end to the Space Battleship Yamato franchise. However, when it was released to theaters, it was extremely popular, and the fanbase wanted more. So, the story presented in the film had to be rewritten in order to make a 26 episode series possible, as well as to make it possible for the franchise to continue. Beccause of this situation, the film has to be looked at as an "alternate timeline" story for the franchise; otherwise, the movies and episodes that came later would make no sense.
This DVD also includes the originial theatrical trailer (which is subtitled), the original program book (which is translated), a gallery of promotional art, and the making of the movie and cast interview
