The official website for Kyoto Animation‘s Violet Evergarden: The Movie anime began streaming the second full trailer for the anime on Friday, Sept 11.
The site also announced that theatres will offer a tray and popcorn bag, as well as a mini clear file with new art, as a combo set.
The site is also streaming a video previewing the new vocal album Letters and Doll ~Looking back on the memories of Violet Evergarden~ by Yui Ishikawa (the voice of the titular protagonist Violet Evergarden). The album will ship on October 21.
The film will open in Japan on September 18. The film’s official website announced on April 6 that Kyoto Animation postponed the film’s opening in Japan due to concerns over the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The film was slated to open in Japan on April 24. This is the second delay for the film, as it was originally slated for a January 10, 2020 opening in Japan.
Singer TRUE will return to perform the film’s theme song “WILL.”
Theatregoers at participating theatres will receive one of three random new short text stories by original author Kana Akatsuki. The three short text stories are titled “Benedict Blue’s Violet,” “Oscar’s Little Angel,” and “Violet Evergarden If” (covers seen respectively below). Akiko Takase, who drew the illustrations for the original novels, and was also the character designer and chief animation director throughout all of the Violet Evergarden anime thus far, drew the covers.
Kyoto Animation‘s television anime adaptation of author Kana Akatsuki and illustrator Akiko Takase‘s Violet Evergarden novels premiered on television in Japan and on Netflix in some territories in January 2018. The anime launched on Netflix in the United States in April 2018.
