Fans have been waiting for a sequel to the Slam Dunk anime for more than two decades. Finally, it looks like the series’ continuation is not a distant dream but a close at hand reality.
Takehiko Inoue’s last announcement about the movie in January riled up the entire fandom of Slam Dunk.
This classic series knows just how to give you an adrenaline rush, and I’ve been craving it ever since I finished the manga. I’m glad to know that my wish will be granted soon.
The upcoming Slam Dunk movie will premiere in Fall 2022, and a brand new teaser has been posted for it.
Although nothing about the plot has been revealed in the teaser, it opens with fast-paced music that is suitable for the anime. It also shows the crouched forms of the Shohoku basketball team.
Inoue is determined to make sure that everything in the upcoming movie is the best that can be delivered. Thus, Takehiko Inoue is both directing and writing the film’s script.
The staff member selection suggests that the film will also be using CG animation to make itself even more lifelike for the viewers.
The following staff members have been revealed for the movie:
|Character Designer||Yasuyuki Ebara||Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress|
|Technical Director||Katsuhiko Kitada||Major: Yujo no Winning Shot|
|Technical Director||Naoki Miyahara||Digimon Adventure|
|Technical Director||Toshio Ohashi||LayereD Stories 0|
|Technical Director||Yu Kamatani||Precure Super Stars!|
|CG Director||Daiki Nakazawa||Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods (movie)|
|CG Producer||Yuta Ogura||Asura|
|Sound Director||Yota Tsuruoka||Free!|
The film’s title and plot have not been revealed yet, and I am dying to know whether the legendary Shohoku vs Kainan match will be animated anytime soon.
I am sure everyone has been missing Sakuragi’s rebounds and powerful slam dunks, but don’t worry, because the wait will be over soon.
