The popular franchise "Appleseed" comes to new life in the CG-animated prequel Appleseed Alpha, available 13th October 2014 on Digital HD and Blu-ray & DVD 27th October 2014 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

World-renowned anime filmmaker Shinji Aramaki (Starship Troopers: Invasion) directs the latest installment in the sci-fi adventure franchise based on the original comic books by Shirow Masamune (Ghost in the Shell) published by Seishinsha with a screenplay by Marianne Krawczyk (God of War game series, Star Trek game and BAFTA Award winner for character and story on God of War 2 game). Appleseed Alpha depicts the early days of female soldier Deunan and her cyborg partner, Briareos, as they embark on an action-packed journey in search of the legendary city of Olympus.

The Appleseed Alpha Blu-ray and DVD feature filmmaker commentary with director Shinji Aramaki and 11 making-of featurettes that track the film's exciting journey from script to screen. In addition to showcasing the latest in state-of-the-art CGI technology, this animated film also features a killer soundtrack with 12 songs from today's top international music artists, including Yasutaka Nakata (Capsule), Skrillex & Alvin Risk, androp, Capsule, DJ Fumiya (RIP Slyme), Passepied, Q;indivi+, tofubeats, Aklo, 80kidz, Nishi-ken, and Ram Rider. The original soundtrack was released by unBORDE / Warner Music Japan Inc. Square Enix Co. Ltd have released Play Arts Kai figurines of Deunan and Briareos and Hot Toys is developing high-end one-sixth scale articulated figures for a future release.

From the creator of Ghost in the Shell and the director of Appleseed comes the intense post-apocalyptic prequel, Appleseed: Alpha. Left to survive in a post-World War society, two mercenary soldiers - Deunan and her cyborg partner Briareos - are sent on a mission on the outskirts of their war-torn city. During the operation, they run into Iris and Olson, two citizens from the utopian city of Olympus, who might have a way to save the world but the ruthless Talos and the scheming warlord Two Horns have their own plans. It's up to Deunan and Briareos to safeguard their newfound contacts and help save humanity's last hope.

Appleseed Alpha is a Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions and Lucent Pictures Entertainment co-production by Sola Digital Arts. It was produced by Joseph Chou (Halo Legends).
