The Japanese distributor Shochiku began streaming a television commercial for the Fairy Tail: Hōō no Miko (Fairy Tail: Priestess of the Phoenix) film on Monday. The film just opened in Japan on Saturday.
The film revolves around a mysterious girl named Éclair who appears before Fairy Tail, the world's most notorious wizard's guild. She lost all of her memories, except for the imperative that she must deliver two Hōōseki (Phoenix Stones) somewhere. The stones may spell the collapse of the magical world, and Natsu, Lucy, and the rest of the Fairy Tail guild are caught up in the intrigue.
Fairy Tail manga creator Hiro Mashima was in charge of story planning and visual design for the film's all-new plot, and he also drafted the guest character designs and image concept art. Masaya Fujimori (You Are Umasou) directed the film, while Masashi Sogo (Fairy Tail, Bleach, Rurouni Kenshin) wrote the screenplay.
