Abstract

Momotarô's Sea Eagles is an animated Japanese propaganda film produced in 1942. Endorsed by the Japanese Imperial Navy, the film tells the story of a naval unit consisting of the human, Momotarō, and several animal species representing the Far Eastern races fighting together for a common goal. Featuring the "Peach Boy" character of Japanese folklore, the film promotes the success of the attack on Pearl Harbour to children. A sequel, Momotarō: Sacred Sailors, was released in 1945, becoming the first full-length Japanese animated film.
