With Gundam: Cucuruz Doan’s Island performing very well in the japanese box officenot many realize that the movie island of the same name is actually a real place.
ESPECIALLY, Alegranza is an island in the Atlantic off the coast of Africa and is part of the Canary Islands.
While the island is uninhabited, this has a lighthousewhich also appears in the film as where the children gang lives and Doan.
The volcano and the crater are also very present and correct in the film, not to mention that they play a critical role in the climax of the film.
If you head to Google Earth, you can also get a better idea of how the island is shaped. As someone who has seen this news Goodham film, it is clear that the production staff made great efforts to portray it accurately.
Surprisingly, director Yoshikazu Yasuhiko does not recommend visiting the island alone, but he hopes that this film will at least make you feel like you were there.
Gundam: Cucuruz Doan’s Island is currently playing in Japanese theaters and there are currently no news releases from Western. In the meantime, do not hesitate to read my review.
