The Hestia Familia is making its way to a new frontier: the cinema!
Earlier today, the official Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? anime website updated with new details on the upcoming movie, titled Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion (Dungeon ni Deai o Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darō ka: Arrow of the Orion; DanMachi: Arrow of Orion henceforth). The site includes a teaser trailer and key visual, as well as the film’s core cast and crew members.
We break the details down below.
The 75-second trailer previews the film’s voice acting, and confirms a 2019 première. Text placards, which are subtitled in English, set up the core plot.

Sentai Filmworks currently holds the rights to the DanMachi anime.
Yen Press currently holds the rights to Fujino Ōmori and illustrator Suzuhito Yasuda’s DanMachi light novels and manga. They describe the title as:
In Orario, fearless adventurers band together in search of fame and fortune within the monstrous underground labyrinth known as Dungeon.
But while riches and renown are incentive enough for most, Bell Cranel, would-be hero extraordinaire, has bigger plans.
He wants to pick up girls.
Is it wrong to face the perils of Dungeon alone, in a single-member guild blessed by a failed goddess? Maybe. Is it wrong to dream of playing hero to hapless maidens in Dungeon? Maybe not. After one misguided adventure, Bell quickly discovers that anything can happen in the labyrinth–even chance encounters with beautiful women. The only problem? He’s the one who winds up the damsel in distress!
