With credits ranging from Speed Racer to Gatchaman, Yoshitaka Amano is best known among gamers for his Final Fantasy illustrations, character work and logo-work.

A seasoned veteran who entered the anime industry when he was 15, Amano is directing his first animated feature film, Zan.

The film is the product of Amano's new production studio, Studio Deva Loka, and he came up with the story and original character art. Set in the late 19th century, the 3D film follows a samurai named Zan who ends up an alternate universe.

Amano exhibited a statue of a huge black feline last month — it's a steel beast named "Panther" the, according to website ANN, becomes Zan's companion in the film.

    Is this the first film he has ever directed?
    He has a lot of character design experience but not much direction experience, I think.

    Interesting. I have always wondered what his ideas would be like translated to a feature anime film setting. I am just surprised this did not happen sooner
    "Back when FF9 was coming out. People were rejoicing because it was actually a fantasy game and not a sci-fi game like 7 and 8. It's hilarious in modern context, with everyone wanking themselves to dehydration at the thought of a FF7 remake."
