The teaser starts with Kasumi Toyama, the protagonist, as a kid looking up at the starry night sky. She mentions how much she wanted to experience that ‘sparkling, heart-pounding’ feeling.

It then shows how Kasumi met her friends and band members Arisa, Rimi, Tae, and Saya. The PV also reminisces the band’s happy moments and their final performance at the end of Season 3.

The trailer hints at two crucial things about the film: a mysterious woman who has appeared before the girls and a possible overseas performance.

A key visual was bundled along with the PV, which shows Kasumi looking up at the clear sky as an airplane passes by. She has a suitcase and her trusty guitar along with her as well.

The website released the PV and made all of us nostalgic about a series that ended just last year. The show is so heartwarming that we got a bit too emotional.

They also revealed that the film would be released globally on 1st February 2022. I know it is a long period, but the movie is worth the wait!

The plot of the upcoming 2022 movie is said to take off right after the end of Season 3 of the anime when the band gives their supposed final performance.

Furthermore, the cast and the staff from the TV anime show will be making a comeback for the movie.

What makes BanG Dream! unlike other anime, instead of focusing on one band, it gives importance to the others as well.

It will make you fall in love with all of the characters and tell you about their life, dreams, and aspirations as well! For example, Roselia is another J-pop band from the show. Even though it is a supporting character band, we got a movie based entirely on them, and it is one of the best I’ve seen.

Poppin’ Party’s journey isn’t over yet, and they will now see you again performing live overseas, so stay tuned!
