Here is a trailer for the first part of the anime film trilogy Buddha. The movies are based on Osamu Tezuka’s manga about the life of prince Siddhartha (serialized in the 1970s and ’80s). Toei Animation and Tezuka Productions have adapted Tezuka’s Buddha, and Warner Bros. plans to premiere the first part in May, 2011 in Japan. Watch it here. Read a review of volumes 7 & 8 of Tezuka’s Buddha (Dan Zigmond, Spring 2006) here.
