The official website for Yuri!!! on Ice the Movie: Ice Adolescence (Yuri!!! on Ice Gekijō-ban: Ice Adolescence), the anime film for the Yuri!!! on Ice franchise, began streaming a teaser trailer for the film on Thursday. The staff showed the video at a screening event for the original television anime series in January 2019, but had not uploaded the video online before now.
The official Twitter account for the film also posted an English statement on the film's progress, which states the film production is "still ongoing with the aim of further enriching the film," but the staff stated they have not yet "reached the stage where we can announce the release date."
The staff had announced in September 2019 that they had delayed the film from its 2019 opening date. The announcement at that time noted that the film was delayed "in order to substantially scale up the content more than originally planned."
The film features the following returning staff:
Original Concept: Mitsurou Kubo x Sayo Yamamoto Direction and Story: Sayo Yamamoto Screenplay and Original Character Design: Mitsurou Kubo Figure Skating Choreography: Kenji Miyamoto Character Design: Tadashi Hiramatsu Music: Taro Umebayashi, Taku Matsushiba Music Producer: Keisuke Tominaga (PIANO) Animation Production: MAPPA
The staff announced the film in April 2017. The original 12-episode television anime series premiered in Japan in October 2016, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. Funimation also streamed an English broadcast dub, and later released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in February 2018.

Old Man Dream: ...Umineko crossover. May have liked the idea with better handling of the story development. But it's basically made Satoko a rather unlikable character now.

Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Old Man Dream: Guess we don't get it. Make things short and sweet: Through some unintentional legal wranglings, Harmony Gold's owned international rights to the Macross name for decades and its Japanese developers, disgusted by the move, had not allowed...

Old Man Dream: ...many later Macross anime outside Japan because that would profit Harmony Gold. Macross was one of three anime titles used by HG in the 1980s to edit together the popular Robotech series popular with fans during that time. Under this deal...

Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
