The film was released in the United States before Japan, as it was commissioned by 4Kids Entertainment, and was released in theatres in August 13, 2004. The characters are the same as the English version of the Yu-Gi-Oh!, or Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters television show and their names retain their regional changes (i.e., Téa is Anzu in the Japanese version and Téa in all other versions). Unlike the TV series, the cards retain their appearance to their real world counterparts in the English version. The movie was released in Japan in November 03, 2004 and aired on TV Tokyo on January 2nd, 2005, which utilized the names, original sound effects and original soundtrack from the Japanese anime and featured ten minutes of additional animation.
The film came out with a soundtrack titled Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie Soundtrack featuring various vocal artists (most notably The Black Eyed Peas, who contributed the song "For The People"); however, the score for the movie was never released.
Famous quotes containing the word pyramid:
“So universal and widely related is any transcendent moral greatness, and so nearly identical with greatness everywhere and in every age,as a pyramid contracts the nearer you approach its apex,that, when I look over my commonplace-book of poetry, I find that the best of it is oftenest applicable, in part or wholly, to the case of Captain Brown.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
