The official Twitter account of P.A. Works' Shirobako anime posted on Thursday that the team is "working on a movie," but clarified that it is unrelated to Shirobako. The post then adds that the movie project is starting to involve more people, and that it is tackling a different subject than the "TV version." The post does not clarify which "TV version" it is specifying.
The Shirobako anime premiered in October 2014. It centers on Aoi Miyamori, a production assistant in an anime studio, as well as four of her friends who all work on different aspects of the industry, such as animation, scriptwriting, voice acting, and CG animation. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for home video release.
P.A. Works is currently working on the Kuromukuro original TV anime project as its 15th anniversary work. The series is slated to air this year. The studio is also animating the currently airing Haruchika – Haruta & Chika television anime series.
