You read that right. Pretty boys on ice, now on the big screen.
(You may now squee.)
Earlier today, a Yuri!!! On ICE stage event was held at Chiba’s Maihama Amphitheater. The event featured a reunion of the show’s original voice cast.
The biggest highlight of the show, though, came at the end, when it was revealed that a Yuri!!! On ICE movie is in the works. As of press time, no further details have been announced.

Rough Translation: Dispatch: Yuri!!! on ICE is getting a totally new theatrical production!!! Please wait for additional news!!! To the visitors at today’s fan event at the National Theater, a huge thank you!! http://yurionice.com/ #yurionice
Yuri!!! on Ice is an original title, which was created by manga author Mitsurou Kubo (Moteki) and director Sayo Yamamoto (Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, Michiko & Hatchin). Yamamoto directed the work at studio MAPPA, and took charge of series composition for the project. Tadashi Hiramatsu (Parasyte -the maxim-) provided character designs, as the team of Taku Matsushiba and Taro Umebayashi scored the soundtrack.
The series aired in the Fall 2016 broadcast season. Crunchyroll streamed Yuri!!! On ICE as it aired in Japan. They describe the show as:
Yuri Katsuki carried the hope of all Japan on his shoulders in the Figure Skating Grand Prix, but suffered a crushing defeat in the finals. He returned to his hometown in Kyushu and hid away in his family’s home, half wanting to continue skating and half wanting to retire. That was when the five-time consecutive world champion, Viktor Nikiforov, suddenly showed up with his teammate, Yuri Plisetsky, a young skater starting to surpass his seniors. And so the two Yuris and the Russian champion Viktor set out to compete in a Grand Prix like none the world has ever seen!
