The twice delayed Violet Evergarden: The Movie has announced a new release date of Sept. 18!
A trailer featuring the theme song, “WILL” by anisong singer True, was released along with the announcement.
Adapted from the series of light novels by Akatsuki Kana, the franchise revolves around the titular Violet Evergarden, a former soldier who has transitioned to a role as an “Auto Memory Doll” scribe.
The upcoming movie is an original sequel to the TV anime which aired in 2018. It will follow Violet as she goes through life, still unable to forget about her former employer Gilbert. One day, she meets his older brother Dietfried, who tells her that she should forget about Gilbert and move on.
Originally scheduled for release on Jan. 10, it was first delayed after a fire at a Kyoto Animation studio, and again due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Advance tickets purchased for the previous release dates will still be valid when the movie opens in September.
Violet Evergarden: The Movie is slated to open on Sept. 18.
