Starship Troopers: Traitor Of Mars Trailer Revives A Very Dead Dizzy
Starship Troopers
(Last Updated On: July 24, 2017)

Casper Van Dien and Dina Meyer have both returned for another new Starship Troopers movie, this time it’s animated and made by Lucent Pictures and Sola Digitals, with Shinji Aramaki in the director’s chair. The latest trailer for the film confirms that Rico is the main character once more, but he isn’t the only one returning to the battlefield… a blonde bombshell version of Dizzy is back, and Dina Meyer is once again voicing her, some 20 odd years later.

The trailer is just under two minutes long, features the theme that the late Basil Poledouris originally put together for the original film, and plenty of power-armor, heavy-arms action that the other CG film, the book and the animated television series were known for. You can check out the trailer below, courtesy of Zero Media.

The movie is due out this summer, and it’s the second in a series of movies made by Sola Digital Arts. The first flick came ou back in 2012, featuring a CGI continuation of the Starship Troopers mythos. It was filled to the brim with blood, gore, non-stop violence and quite a few boob and butt shots. A nice little homage to Paul Verhoeven’s classic.

In the Starship Troopers: Invasion flick they revealed that Johnny Rico had lost an eye. He also managed to grow a beard and pretty much look like a poor man’s rip-off of Solid Snake.

When you see him in the trailer above there’s an undeniable semblance to Kojima’s Punished Snake, also known as Venom Snake, the stand-in doppelganger for the real Big Boss.

The comment section was also quick to point out the influences from Metal Gear Solid, noting that the biggest change came in the form of Dizzy Flores, who now looks like Paz from Metal Gear. Previously, Dizzy was a red head with a fiery temper. But now she’s a blonde with short hair. Even if this is going by the television series based on Rico’s Roughnecks, that Dizzy still had short brown hair. I have no idea where the art design for this new Dizzy comes from but it’s kind of odd.

Additionally, if this is based on the live-action movie series timeline then it makes no sense because… well, not-so-spoiler alert: Dizzy is dead.

Some of the commenters on the video speculated that maybe Rico was having a flashback or a hallucination or maybe Dizzy is an AI in this one. I don’t really know, but it would have been pretty cool if they still used Dina Meyer as the model for Dizzy because she’s still hot.

Anyway, I’m sure we’ll get answers as to what’s up with the return of Dizzy, who the traitor of Mars is, and why Rico is slowly turning into Big Boss when the film releases this summer.

  • Maybe it’s just me, but this kinda reminds me of that godawful 3D Final Fantasy movie from 16 years ago, style, animation wise and the faces. Not action obviously, Final Fantasy barely had any.

    • I went back and watched Final Fantasy Spirits Within and I thought it was a pretty interesting flick. Elliot Goldenthal did a really fantastic job giving that movie its own musical identity.

  • Grey

    Wish this was a game trailer.

    • It’s no different than most Destiny 2 trailers, except it looks like it actually has a real story.

      • Grey

        This also has attractive character designs.

        • …and it probably won’t put you to sleep.

  • Disqusted

    I take a peek at the trailer and that goddamn reverse whale sound plays again. F**kin’ hell.

    • LOL… it’s everywhere.

  • GuyverOne

    I’ll give it a watch, I quite enjoyed the last animated film and this seems like it will have a few twists and turns. I wonder if Dizzy will turn out to be some sort of human-bug hybrid thing kinda like those in the second live action movie.

    • tajlund

      A lot of people didn’t like that one, but I thought the whole horror movie vibe of the infiltrators was kind of cool.

  • EroBotan

    wow, the girls looks pretty! And cute too (something that rarely happen in western made stuff!! – usually they choose sexy & mature type)

    • This isn’t Western made, lol. It’s Japanese-made based on a Western story.

      • EroBotan

        lol, that explain it then XD

    • Disqusted

      I thought they usually choose the manly/fat/old type.

      • Warscent

        SJWs do.

      • EroBotan

        it’s kinda sad lol. In the past they don’t have the skill, everyone is ugly. Now that they have the skill to make good 3D girls, they’re ordered by the SJWs to make ugly ones which result to not many western games have pretty girls lately …

        • they’re ordered by the SJWs to make ugly ones which result to not many western games have pretty girls lately …

          No Western game has pretty girls. Not one Western AAA game has come out with a visually memorable girl that is attractive.

          • EroBotan

            you’re pretty harsh XD

          • GuyverOne

            The Witcher 3 had some attractive women in there, at least I thought so 🙂

    • Warscent

      True, we dont have an obsession with tween schoolgirls in microskirts like Japan does.
      We prefer women.

      • EroBotan

        dude, asian girls in general (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, etc) still looks cute even in the middle of their 30s. And I’m talking about the common girls here, like neighboor, co-worker, etc.

        I don’t have a problem with you prefer non-cute girls, it’s sad that your attitude can’t be as mature as me 😀

        • Warscent

          Didn’t mean to trigger you.
          Im stereotyping here.

          • EroBotan

            the one who sounds angry and upset is you, how come i’m the one who is triggered lol

          • Warscent

            Then let me buy you a beer.

        • Disqusted

          I’m sure most people already know it’s a running joke in Japan (and probably Asia) that Westerners highly value and love old, muscley men. In contrast, Japan prides youthfulness as representative of hope, etc. Makes sense to me. It’s more the young people who have to worry about the future.

          The West just has this weird thing where any kind of youthfulness magically equals pedophilia, which is really ironic because it’s the West that has the huge pedo rape problem.

          In reality, youthfulness is associated with health and fertility. From what I’ve heard, it’s generally beneficial (except economically, of course) to have kids at a younger age, instead of waiting until 30+ years old. Genes would be healthier, you have a higher chance of seeing your kids and grandkids grow up, etc, etc.

          That doesn’t mean you should bang pizza like the elites do, of course. I just think people in the West often take things to extremes because they’re afraid of being labelled in negatively. They jump to weirdass conclusions that don’t make sense, like how Australia tried to ban small breasts.

          A lot of it is assholes assuming everyone else has to be stupid as shit. Or sick f**ks in power pointing fingers at others to distract from themselves, like Kurt Ecchiwald does.

          Personally, I think that if we weren’t meant to be breeding at a younger age, our reproduction shit wouldn’t develop so early.

          • EroBotan

            would love to be able to breed early but nowadays it’s hard to be financially stable for average people unless you’re 30 years old+ .. so sad T__T.

            Our current breeding style is not the only one that is unnatural, sitting in front of your computer 10+ hours a day is also unnatural (and unhealthy) but can’t help it … it’s work.

          • Also cost of living makes it unviable to breed under 30 unless you’re rich. Kids are nothing but an expense until you can get them into the work force, which means for at least 14 – 15 years they’re nothing but a financial burden and economic dead weight.

          • EroBotan

            seems westerners have it harder, from what i heard kids are not allowed to help their parents because it’s against child labor law. Even cleaning classroom duty in school is not allowed. Is that true? or is it just some hyperbolic info?

          • There are child labor laws, so kids can only work part time and you have to go through some hoops to make that happen for kids under the age of 14.

            The cleaning the classroom thing is BS, though, plenty of kids do that sort of stuff. A lot of kids also have a bunch of extracurricular activities after class, some of which involves volunteer work where they help organize stuff or at shelters or other outreach programs where they help out the community without getting a dime.

            It is hard for people to actually make any sort of bank these days if they aren’t middle-class or higher and they have kids. It’s best just to not have kids unless you’re rich here in the States, otherwise all it does is make it hard on the rest of us when the kid inevitably becomes a drug addict, gangbanger, or the refuse of society and us tax payers have to pay for this kid to live the good life in prison.

          • EroBotan

            i see, everything sounds very normal to me! Kids under 14 most likely aren’t ready to work anyway. Asking them to help the parents will most likely create a huge mess XD.

            These days are hard indeed, and both parents needs to work too!! Not ideal situation for families with kid(s) …

      • EroBotan

        hey, could it be that you’re an SJW? i mean the one who keep saying that japanese are pedophiles are SJW. If you’re not then i suggest try to compare the number of pedophile cases in japan and western countries.

        If you’re an SJW then well, i don’t think fact matters to you then lol

        • Warscent

          Im not, and I didn’t say that.
          You’ve a wild imagination.

          • EroBotan

            really? even though it’s so obvious lol. Anyway, being a butthurt fan will accomplish nothing, whatever you do the movie won’t use your type of women. Feel free to complaint about it but no need to blame and insult others for your misfortune.

          • Warscent

            Why so triggered?

      • Disqusted

        That doesn’t really explain why women (and some men) in the West seem to like cosplaying as schoolgirls in microskirts, but okay.

        • Warscent

          Yes, they are called liberals.

  • Laytonaster

    I’ll stay for the action. Those suits look sexy.

  • Hawk Hopper

    Somebody somewhere is keeping Starship Troopers alive.

    • Daniel Ream

      And yet, still chopping it up into a bastardized version of what it’s supposed to be.

      • Warscent

        They should have went with western style faces that resembled the original movie.
