4Kids Entertainment has been granted the global theatrical, television and home entertainment rights (excluding Asia) to Yu-Gi-Oh! 3-D: Bonds Beyond Time, a special 3-D animated film to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the kids' series.

The film, which follows the characters Yugi Muto, Judai Yuki and Yusei Fudo, is the world's first full-length animated feature drawn by hand and rendered into 3-D for the big screen. It premiered in Japan last January, earning more than $3 million during its limited run at 124 3-D theaters.

"Our plan is to release the film to 3-D theaters in early 2011 in select markets and follow that window with a television debut and DVD release," says Brian Lacey, executive vice president of 4Kids Entertainment International. "We are confident that this Yu-Gi-Oh! movie will be well received by global broadcasters and kid viewers since our Yu-Gi-Oh! broadcast partners and others have requested this kind of event-driven content from the producers."
