Violet Evergarden: The Movie which has previously been postponed twice now has a confirmed opening date! The announcement was made via the official website of Kyoto Animation’s Violet Evergarden: The Movie.
Fans of the Japanese light novel series have had to patiently wait for the movie, as it was originally scheduled for January 10th but had to be delayed due to the unfortunate Kyoto fire incident. It was then delayed to April 24th, the effects of the coronavirus pandemic made it impossible to open that period however it has now been confirmed to open in Japan on the 18th of September.
The Violet Evergarden franchise is a highly successful one, as the light novels have led to anime as well as movies. In 2018, Kyoto Animation made a TV anime adaptation of the light novel, it was massively accepted by the public and the anime went ahead to win the Crunchyroll animation award.
Alongside the opening date announcement, a new trailer featuring the theme song “Will” by singer -True was also released. Tickets purchased for the previous release dates will still be valid for the September opening date.
Violet Evergarden : The Movie is expected to be a sequel to the 2018 TV anime. The single for the theme song “Will” now also has a release date of September 16th.
