Get ready to watch a ton of highly merchandisable heroes on the big screen!
Earlier today, Toei Animation launched a website for a new PreCure film, titled Eiga Precure Super Stars! (PreCure the Movie Super Stars!). The site includes a visual for the project, which features three generations of PreCure heroines.
The feature is being produced to celebrate the franchise’s 15th anniversary.
Eiga Precure Super Stars! will hit Japanese theaters on March 17. The feature will focus mainly on the characters from Hugtto! Precure, and will feature appearances by characters from Maho Girls PreCure! and Kirakira ☆ Precure a la Mode.
This is the ninth entry in the Precure All Stars! film series. The films have been a near-annual event in Japan, and usually feature appearances from every single PreCure series.
Last year was the first to not feature a Precure All Stars movie, instead hosting the premiere of Eiga Precure Dream Stars! on March 18.
Hugtto! Precure will hit Japanese TV on February 4, at 8:30AM. The series will replace Kirakira ☆ Precure a la Mode, which is currently airing.
Junichi Sato (Aria the Animation, Sailor Moon) and Akifumi Zako (Go! Princess Pretty Cure the Movie Go! Go!! Gorgeous Triple Feature!!!, Dream 9 Toriko & One Piece & Dragon Ball Z Chō Collaboration Special!!) were tapped to direct the series at Toei Animation, with Toshie Kawamura (Glitter Force, Karneval) providing character designs. Fumi Tsubota (Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live, 12-Sai: Chiccha na Mune no Tokimeki) is in charge of series composition.
