Heine’s back for a special lesson with his favorite princes.
Earlier today, the official The Royal Tutor anime website announced that the project will receive a feature film. A key visual and trailer, along with the major cast and crew were revealed for the project. We break the details down below.
The minute-long promo opens with Heine, who greets the camera with “it’s been a while, everybody.” Afterwards, the feature cuts between animation clips, as a narrator explains the film’s basic concept.
The new visual features Heine with the princes. He shrugs, as he’s flanked by two new princes: Ivan Alexandru Vicci and Eugene Alexandru Vicci.
A visual featuring Ivan and Eugene was also revealed, which you can check out below.
The confirmed voice cast includes:
- Heine Wittgenstein: Keisuke Ueda
- Kai von Grannzreich: Yūya Asato
- Bruno von Grannzreich: Yūto Adachi
- Leonhardt von Grannzreich: Daisuke Hirose
- Licht von Grannzreich: Shouta Aoi
All five players will reprise their roles from the TV series.
Katsuya Kikuchi (Idol Memories, Sengoku Paradise Kiwami) wil return to direct the film at studio Bridge, with Rena Okuyama (Idol Memories, Sengoku Paradise Kiwami) reprising their role as character designer. Kimiko Ueno (Kuromajyo-san ga Tōru!!) is once again in charge of series composition, while Keiji Inai scores the soundtrack.
The Royal Tutor: The Movie will hit Japanese theaters on February 16, 2019. Customers who pre-purchase their tickets will receive a card with a QR code. Scanning the code will allow users to hear the voice actor of the card’s character tell a short story.
The Royal Tutor TV series aired during the Spring 2018 broadcast season. Crunchyroll streamed the title as a simulcast, and Funimation produced an English dub. Crunchyroll describes the title as:
The “Royal Tutor” is a special tutor carefully selected for the task of teaching the prince, and a title given only to the best teacher in the nation. Heine Wittgenstein has been called to the kingdom of Grannzreich to take on the role of the Royal Tutor. He’s been ordered to raise a worthy candidate for the throne, but he’s greeted with four princes of completely different, unique personalities… all brothers, no less! How will Heine handle these four brothers who were too much for all the previous Royal Tutors, prompting them all to run away from the job?
