Tezuka’s Buddha, Princess Knight to get movie

22 04 2009

jg_ribbon-knightManga master Osamu Tezuka’s works Buddha and Princess Knight will be getting the animated film treatment sometime around 2010. Buddha, chronicling the life of Siddhartha, founder of Buddhism, is eight volumes long and was released in hardcover and paperback in the U.S. Princess Knight tells the tale of a princess disguised as a boy to protect her from threats to the throne (like Henry IV). Adding another layer, the princess dons another persona, fighting evildoers as the “Ribbon Knight.”

Thanks to Anime News Network for the info.
