The official website for the all-new Shirobako Movie (Gekijō-ban Shirobako) project began streaming a teaser video for the film on Thursday. The tagline in the video reads, “We will not give up! Not until we fulfill our promise…”
The film will open in Japan in spring 2020.
The returning staff includes director Tsutomu Mizushima, animation studio P.A. Works, series script supervisor Michiko Yokote, character designer Ponkan8, animation character designer and chief animation director Kanami Sekiguchi, and production company Infinite.
Additional staff members, most of whom are returning from the original television anime, include:
Art Directors: Yūsuke Takeda, Tsukasa Kakizakai Color Design: Katsue Inoue 3D Director: Motonari Ichikawa Compositing Director (Director of Photography): Yukiyo Kajiwara Special Effects: Chie Katō Editing: Ayumu Takahashi Music: Shiroh Hamaguchi Music Production: IMAGINE
The cast members reprising their roles from the television anime include:
Juri Kimura as Aoi Miyamori Haruka Yoshimura as Ema Yasuhara Haruka Chisuga as Shizuka Sakaki Asami Takano as Misa Tōdō Hitomi Ohwada as Midori Imai Shūya Nishiji as Yutaka Honda Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Tatsuya Ochiai Yuri Yamaoka as Erika Yano Hiroyuki Yoshino as Tarō Takanashi Ai Kayano as Rinko Ogasawara Masaya Matsukaze as Hayabusa Watanabe Mai Nakahara as Yuka Okitsu
The staff had said that the "story will continue" in the film from the earlier television anime. Producer Takayuki Nagatani stated at the Tokyo Anime Award Festival in March 2016, "if we could decide on a theme, there might be a chance [for a sequel]" to Shirobako.
The movie has been doing well. Surprised to see Digimon low.
The Shirobako (Gekijō-ban Shirobako) sequel anime film sold 84,000 tickets and earned 115 million yen (about US$1.05 million) to rank at #3 in its opening weekend. The film opened in 158 theaters in Japan last Saturday. Despite selling less tickets that the #2 film, Stolen Identity 2 (SmaPho o Otoshita Dake Nanoni: Toraware no Satsujinki), Shirobako actually earned 3 million yen more (about US$30,000) due to its higher ticket prices.
The film's opening weekend gross is 89.5% that of the 2015 Girls und Panzer der Film, director Tsutomu Mizushima's previous feature-length anime film. The Eiga.com website projects that the film will earn 1 billion yen (about US$9.23 million) or higher.
Pia's exit poll of filmgoers on opening day reported a satisfaction rating of 93.6,, the highest among this past week's new films, from a survey sample of 73 people.
The film's story is set four years after the events of the original Shirobako anime. Aoi Miyamori keeps busy dealing with the ordinary troubles in her daily work at Musashino Animation. After a morning meeting, Watanabe talks to Aoi and puts her in charge of a new theatrical anime project for the studio. The project has unexpected problems, and Aoi is unsure if the company can proceed with a theatrical anime with its current state of affairs. While dealing with that anxiety, Aoi meets a new colleague named Kaede Miyai (voiced by Ayane Sakura). She and the MusAni team work together to complete the project.
