The initial opening will be a limited showing of two weeks, with distribution by Toho Visual Entertainment. This is an announcement that has been long-awaited by fans. Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade began as a short animation created as a training project for animators. Support from crowdfunding was used to produce the sequel. With $625,518 (around 74 million yen) gained from this cooperation, this project has grown rather big.

Along with the release date, a trailer and visuals, as well as the theme song and artist information were also announced. In the trailer, Akko and the gang are creating a lot of racket as usual, and three new characters in addition to the parade, which is key to the story, were shown.

Likewise, one can discern new developments in the released visuals. Three new characters are depicted, making us anticipate their roles in the movie. The official website is scheduled to be updated at midnight on Aug. 14, and new information is expected to be released all at once.

Furthermore, the theme song and its artist is also big news. In charge of the new song “Magic Parade” is the newcomer singer-songwriter Yuiko Ohara, making her first major debut. She was selected for the position from a large-scale audition process. She will make her debut on a Toho label, Toho Animation Records Anticipation will be building for a new talent as well as a new record label.

Little Witch Academia: The Enchanted Parade concerns Akko and her fellow students at Luna Nova Magical Academy creating an incident. This time around the six problem children must struggle to avert a crisis of failure and ensure that the annual parade is a success.

The film’s world premiere was at Anime Expo 2015 in Los Angeles in July, where it gained massive popularity. It is expected that the general theatre release will garner a similar reaction.
