Cardcaptor Sakura: The Sealed Card is the second film in the original Cardcaptor Sakura series. The 2000 movie was directed by Morio Asaka (Chihayafuru, NANA) at Madhouse, with Nanase Ohkawa (Cardcaptor Sakura, Magic Knight Rayearth) writing the screenplay.
Pioneer Animation (later Geneon Entertainment) released the film in North America in dubbed and subtitled formats. They described the feature as:
