Homura Stars in New Madoka Magica: Walpurgis no Kaiten Movie Trailer

A new trailer for the Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Walpurgis no Kaiten movie featuring Homura is now available on Aniplex’s YouTube channel. At just under two minutes long, there are only a few new scenes in the trailer that Aniplex hadn’t shown before.

The entire first third of the trailer focuses on Homura and her descent into villainy. There’s also a scene of Madoka facing off against what looks like a witch. It’s unclear if the witch has anything to do with Homura. Kyubey is also fairly prominent in this trailer, foreshadowing his return to the plot proper. The voices in the beginning of after Homura picks up the phone seem to plead for her to release a girl. It’s unclear if this means Madoka (considering the end of Rebellion) or Homura herself (in the sense of she’s trapped in her obsession with Madoka).

Aniplex and Shaft first announced Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Walpurgis no Kaiten in 2021. The announcement was part of the 10th anniversary of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica franchise. Ever since the beginning, we knew that it would be a direct continuation of Rebellion. Rebellion originally came out in 2013. It focused on Homura in the aftermath of Madoka’s wish at the end of the show. The movie starts with Homura in Mitakihara, defeating Nightmares instead of Witches. But when she finds that her reality conflicts with her memories, she realizes that she’s been trapped inside of a Witch’s barrier this whole time. 

The Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Walpugis no Kaiten movie will air in theaters in Japan some time in Winter 2024.
