New “Intermission” Video and a Gorgeous New Visual Released for Upcoming “Violet Evergarden” Movie

Anime News

It’s full steam ahead for the delayed Violet Evergarden film project, as Kyoto Animation has recently revealed an “intermission” video for the film last Friday. Check out the video here!

In addition to this, a gorgeous new visual was released for the film, featuring Violet herself along with her (our) beloved Gilbert. The poster is really beautiful, and you can check it out below!

The film is set for an April 24 release in Japan.

It will be remembered that last September, Kyoto Animation announced that they will not push through with the film’s originally-scheduled January 2020 opening. This is because of production delays brought about by the arson incident that was perpetuated against the studio last July, causing the death of 36 people and leaving 33 people injured. In the announcement made in KyoAni’s website, the studio also thanked all the fans who continue to express support and stated that the director and staff are working hard and pouring all their heart and strength into the production.

Director Taichi Ishidate, who directed the anime series, returns to direct the film. Script will still be handled by Reiko Yoshida, character design and chief animation by Akiko Tase, and music will still be composed by Evan Call. The film will be taking place several years after the war that killed Gilbert Bougainvillea, the man Violet loved. As the world is slowly becoming peaceful, Violet Evergarden finds a certain letter.

First released as a light novel series written by Kana Akatsuki and illustrated by Akiko Takase, Violet Evergarden  won the grand prize in the fifth Kyoto Animation Awards novel category in 2014. It was then published in 2015 by KyoAni’s publishing arm, KA Esuma Bunko, and was then subsequently adapted into a 13-episode anime series by the same studio. The anime series premiered on January 2018 in Japan and in other countries as well via Netflix. The story revolves around Violet Evergarden, a robot who was once used as a soldier in a recently-ended war. She tries to reintegrate into society by becoming an Auto Memory Doll, or robots hired by people to write for them. The series follows her in learning how to become an Auto Memory Doll, understanding the feelings of people and the world around her, and trying to comprehend her former major’s dying words to her: “I love you”.
