Theatrical Trailer for Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Movie
Yu-Gi-Oh belongs to Kazuki Takahashi
Prior to dubbing the film, LittleKuriboh has produced a trailer for an abridged version of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light, using the same techniques used in the series. The trailer features all the cast, including Bakura as "Sir Not-Appearing-In-This-Film" ( a reference to Monty Python and the Holy Grail; ironically, Bakura would appear in one brief scene in the movie and listed as a cast member, but Mokuba, who appeared as a primary character, was listed in the credits as "not in the movie") with Requiem for a Tower used as a backing track. It also features Anubis as "The Big Bad", whose two-toned voice might be mimicking the Goa'uld from Stargate SG-1. John Denver's song, "Leaving on a Jet Plane", was also heard accompanied by Kaiba’s take off scenes from the film. The trailer made a Starfox reference when Mokuba told Kaiba, "Do a barrel roll, big brother." However, none of the scenes used in this trailer were used in the actual movie with the same dialogue, except the gag about a naked man behind Kaiba. The popular song "Lux Aeterna" is used for this trailer. Ironic enough, another parody on the movie is almost totally based on the trailer except Mokuba is saying "BLEEP your self big brother" instead of "Do a barrel roll, big brother" to which Kaiba replies, "I was about to ask you the same thing" as he does in the movie.
The movie was released on Monday June 18, 2007. There was a slight hold up because LittleKuriboh was sick with a recent case of tonsillitis and couldn't do any dubbing for a while.
