Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Creator Comments on Live-Action Film Adaptation
In recent years, we have seen many popular anime series adapted into live action films, with several big names in anime still on the way to the silver screen. However, not all of these films were without controversy. The Ghost in the Shell live-action adaptation released to much critical scrutiny, largely from fans of the anime and manga source material. As such, fans of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure have been somewhat anxious about the upcoming live-action film based on the series. Hopefully, some might now find some peace with the new adaptation, as the Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure creator has shared his thoughts after seeing the new film.
The live action film, titled Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable Chapter I, held its premiere recently in Japan ahead of its theatrical release in the country. Hirohiko Araki, the creator of the Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure manga series, was present at the premiere, but was also able to see the final version of the film beforehand. This allowed Araki to share his thoughts on the film to the attendees of the premiere and the wider audience, as shared on Crunchyroll, saying:
In the coming August, Jojo’s film will be finally released. I think there are some manga readers who have felt very anxious about it along with great expectations, but the high completion level of the film far exceeds your anticipation. The character building by the protagonists and others dominate the scenes overwhelmingly with cinematic suspense. The CG and the soundtrack music are also amazing enough to make the film more exciting. Please enjoy the film breathlessly this summer.
Thank you very much.”
With such a glowing positive response from the franchise’s creator, hopefully some fans that initially objected to the film might find some peace with its existence. What do you guys think about the Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure creator’s thoughts on the new film? Let us know in the comments below!
