The Ni no Kuni movie produced by Level-5 and Warner Bros. Japan has been announced for an August 23, 2019 release date in Japan.
The story revolves around the three childhood friends Yuu, Haru, and Kotona. When Kotona gets into some trouble, the three of them end up getting whisked away to the mysterious Ni no Kuni, where their parallel selves exist. It turns out that the princess of Ni no Kuni is Kotona’s parallel self, and Haru grows closer to her, but when Kotona and the princess are thrust into danger, Yuu and Haru must now make the ultimate choice.
Additionally, Warner Bros. Japan has shared info on two other characters:
Ojii-san (CV: Tsuyoshi Muro): An mysterious old man who stays at the same hospital as Yuu, and has always helped cheer Yuu up. While he looks like just some noisy old man, he’s harboring a very important secret. Warner Bros. also mentions that he seems to be related to the Ni no Kuni video games as well.
King Flounder (CV: Masatou Ibu): The King of Evermore in Ni no Kuni.
The Ni no Kuni movie is set to come out on August 23, 2019 in Japan.
