Earlier today, news broke that Promare will get a new theatrical screening in Japan. The film will open on December 20 in theaters across Japan. The feature will be shown in three formats:
- Japanese with English Subtitles
- English-Dubbed with Japanese Subtitles
Promare opened on May 15, 2019. The feature earned 1.4 billion yen ($12,790,400 USD) during its theatrical run.
Hiroyuki Imaishi (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill) directed the project, with Shigeto Koyama (Heroman) providing character designs. Kazuki Nakashima (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Kill la Kill) wrote the screenplay.
GKIDS describes Promare as:
The first feature-length film from the acclaimed studio TRIGGER, creators of the hit series KILL la KILL and Little Witch Academia, and director Hiroyuki Imaishi (GURREN LAGANN, KILL la KILL), Promare uses a bold cel-shaded visual style to tell a blistering action-adventure story, and is the spiritual successor to many of director Imaishi’s former works.
Thirty years has passed since the appearance of Burnish, a race of flame-wielding mutant beings, who destroyed half of the world with fire. When a new group of aggressive mutants calling themselves “Mad Burnish” appears, the epic battle between Galo Thymos, a new member of the anti-Burnish rescue team “Burning Rescue,” and Lio Fotia, the leader of “Mad Burnish” begins.
The project was first revealed at Anime Expo 2017, during the Trigger industry panel. At the time, it was noted that the project had been in the works for four years, and that the tone will be similar to both Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill.
