   The War in Space, released in Japan as Great Planet War: THE WAR IN SPACE, is a tokusatsu science fiction film produced and released by Toho Studios in 1977.

   I’ve been looking for a copy of this film for a while. It was playing one day on channel 2 out of San Francisco in the late 70’s and I was able to watch a little bit of it. The main ship really stuck with me, along with the action and colors. The movie probably isn’t all that great and my geek nostalgia goggles are really thick on this subject but I have enjoyed watching far worse films… just ask Mrs. Multiverse 😉
