Urobuchi: The original idea was to have a concluding story within the original series but through producer Iwakami and director Yukihiro Miyamoto's enthusiastic support we decided we wanted something expandable as a world and concept. We wanted to make it have more breadth and be a bridge to the world view within the series and the franchise.

Whoa... that's not what I was expecting! Does this mean a bunch of completely new characters then, a more stand alone movie? And if that's the case, will we see no more of the original cast, or at best see cameo appearances? (sure hope to see at least some kind of cameos, at least, as long as they don't feel too distractingly or disgracefully shoehorned in...)

What kind of enemies can we expect in the new movie? Will it feature more witches?
Iwakami: That's a secret, however I can say that aokiume has produced some very attractive designs.

Erm... I believe something was lost in translation here. Ume Aoki, or "aokiume," never touched the design of the witches in the original Madoka Magica witches. Do you mean Gekidan Inu Curry? That Ume Aokiwill actually design some witches herself? Or by Ume Aoki doing some new designs, she'll design some new 'cute' characters?

This is what the translator told me he said. I'm unsure if it means aokiume is handling enemy designs but that's what seems to be implied.

Hm, as usual not much information is revealed. Typical of ANIPLEX's head producers. Their answers are so damn short too, for what I perceive to be some rather solid questions. Better then nothing I suppose.

Just thought I'd add to this discussion.... a bunch of smaller press outlets had to share the 3 special guests before Lynzee hogged them all to herself... J/K.. lol

Anyway our combined questions are here, enjoy!
