The official Toei website has revealed that a feature-length film based on the Smile Precure! television series is slated to open in Japan on October 27 of this year. A final title for the film has yet to be determined.
While a Precure film is traditionally released every fall in Japan, this is the first official listing to reveal definitive information on this year's film, which will mark the 13th feature-length film from the Precure franchise since it began in 2004. The Smile Precure! series began airing on Japanese television on February 5 of this year.
The series tells the story of 5 legendary warriors called Pretty Cures who have been gathered by a fairy from Märchenland, where characters from fairy tales mingled together. Their goal is to collect the Cure Décor, tokens of happiness that have been stolen and hidden away when Märchenland was attacked by the Bad End Kingdom, a land where fairy tale antagonists gather.
