The official website for Yuri!!! on Ice Gekijō-ban: Ice Adolescence (Yuri!!! on Ice the Movie: 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.
