A group of 27 former Kamen Rider and Super Sentai (Power Rangers) franchise song performers are singing the theme song for the upcoming crossover movie Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen. Known as Hero Music All Stars, the group recorded the song "Jōnetsu~We are Brothers" and also appeared at an event in January to celebrate the Kamen Rider franchise's 40th anniversary and the Super Sentai series' 35th title.
The participating artists are Takafumi Iwasaki, m.c.A.T, Ken'ichirou Ōishi, Saki Oshitani, Hiroaki Kagoshima, Aya Kamiki, Kamen Rider Girls, Mayumi Gojo, Psychic Lover, Yoshiharu Shiina, Sister MAYO, Hideaki Takatori, Hideyuki Takahashi, Takuya, Takayoshi Tanimoto, NoB, Tsuyoshi Matsubara, Rica Matsumoto, and Rider Chips.
Director Osamu Kaneda began shooting the film in late December, and it will feature 50 characters from the four-decade-long Kamen Rider franchise and 173 members of the teams in the live-action special-effects Super Sentai franchise. The film's first commercials and full trailer began streaming last month, and a promotional image featuring 485 cast members was posted.
CD and DVD releases of "Jōnetsu~We are Brothers" will ship in Japan on April 25, after Toei opens the film in theaters across Japan on April 21.
