The Pikmin animated movie — a compilation of three shorts produced by Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto — will premiere at the Tokyo International Film Festival at the end of October.
"Pikmin Short Movies" comprises three shorts films: "The Night Juicer," in which Captain Olimar makes his favorite beverage; "Treasures in a Bottle," in which Pikmin discover a strange treasure and "Occupational Hazards," which is an adventure at a construction site.
In March, Miyamoto discussed the film project with Polygon, including a preview of "The Night Juicer." In it, Olimar is caught blending up what appears to be a red, vivisected pikmin, and then drinking it. When Olimar sees the characters, he begins walking toward them with a knife. They back away until they bump into a massive pile of what Olimar was actually cutting up and blending, a massive pile of carrots.
The Tokyo International Film Festival will be held at several venues around the city Oct. 25 to Oct. 31.
