The upcoming anime film from the Nanatsu no Taizai (Seven Deadly Sins) franchise has released the full trailer as well as cast and the theme song. As the Seven Deadly Sins anime comes to an end, the upcoming anime film will be hitting theaters in Japan later this year.
The official website for the original upcoming movie, The Seven Deadly Sins: Cursed By Light (Nanatsu no Taizai: Hikari ni Norowareshi Mono-tachi), unveiled a trailer.
