With this year’s Anime Expo around the corner, the biggest announcement from the show has already been partially revealed – anime and manga legend Katsuhiro Otomo is working on his next feature-length film.

While details are scant, the main banner (via YonkouProductions) on the Los Angeles Convention Center has confirmed the storied creator has “embarked on an exciting new movie project.”

Further details are likely coming in his panel, which is set for tomorrow, July 4th, at 5 PM Pacific / 8 PM Eastern.

We’ll keep you guys posted.
