Nova Orbis (also known as Nova Orbis: The Movie) is a 1978 Vlokozuian kadsresatsu superhero film. It is the third Technic Heroes installment, the first Nova Orbis installment, the first to be directed by Pasi Peure and the first to be released internationally, as Robotman and Robotman 2 both weren't released until 1984 and 1985 respectively.
It was a first Vlokozuian film to be nominated at the Golden Globe Awards. Nova Orbis is also the first-ever feature length live-action film to be based on the video game, as it was based on the the arcade game of the same name created by Scotty Takehado, who co-produced the movie, released in 1977 by Edacra, Nova Orbis was intended to be directly adapted from the comic series but it was made into the spinoff of the Robotman series, as Pasi Peure was a fan of Robotman films.

Production and release
Nova Orbis was the first Technic Heroes film to be released overseas: getting screened in 1978, the same year of it's Vlokozuian release, in Jazila, Haalis, Engotu, Aquaria, the Soviet Union and Brazil. Pasi Peure stated in a 2005 interview that "everyone in the cinemas oohed-and-aahed. They had never seen such beings doing such incredible feats of strength and courage." In 1979, it was screened one more time in the Soviet Union in competition for the Golden Prize at the 11th Moscow International Film Festival. The same year, it was screened at several American film festivals where the applause level was measured at every screening, eventually winding up in a wide American release. The film was a runner up in the 37th Golden Globe Awards.
The film was released on VHS and Betamax by El TV Kadsre Home Video in December 22, 1978. The film was also the first Technic Heroes film to be released on High-Density Videodisc (HDV) and on Laserdisc (then known as DiscoVision).
Nova Orbis had a very slow start in the Vlokozuian box office during its initial theatrical run. But when it was released internationally, it became an instant success, resulting in the kadsresatsu genre to gain worldwide attention.
