The official website of Tezuka Productions has announced that the website for the anime film version of Osamu Tezuka’s Buddha manga has launched. As announced last year, the Tezuka Osamu no Buddha -Akai Sabaku yo! Utsukushiku- film will adapt Tezuka’s recounting of the life of the young prince Siddhartha, the founder of Buddhism.

Yasuomi Ishifuji is directing the film off a screenplay by Reiko Yoshida. Hideaki Maniwa is designing the characters and Toei Animation producing the project in association with Tezuka Productions.

Additionally, Rock band X Japan is providing the theme song for “Buddha.” The song, titled “Scarlet Love Song,” is a ballad written by band leader Yoshiki. It will begin playing in theaters on December 23 when the movie’s trailer premieres.

“Tezuka Osamu no Buddha -Akai Sabaku yo! Utsukushiku-” is planned to be the first film in a trilogy based on “Buddha.” Directed by Kozo Morishita, the movie features a voice cast that includes Sayuri Yoshinaga, Masato Sakai, Junko Takeuchi, and Hidetaka Yoshioka.

“Scarlet Love Song” will reportedly be included on X Japan’s album planned for release next spring.

Warner Brothers will release the film in Japan on May 28, 2011.
