Designer Ume Aoki draws 3rd key visual for poster

A new flyer for Gekijō-ban Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica [Shinpen]: Hangyaku no Monogatari (Madoka Magica The Movie -Rebellion-), the brand-new third Madoka Magica film, is revealing more of the story premise for the film:

[Note: Highlight the text below for the story, which contains spoilers for the end of the television series and first two films]

A girl becomes a magical girl in exchange for her wish. The magical girls have a fate to fight against the witches, the harbingers of destruction that plant the seeds of despair, and in the end, they will succumb to despair and transform into witches themselves... The terrible cycle that had repeated so many times was finally ended by Madoka Kaname's sacrifice, and the world was led into a new order. However, the magical girls' battle must continue. The reason for this is because it is the compensation for the miracle. Unable to let her memories of Madoka die, Homura Akemi, the magical girl left behind continues to fight alone in the revived world. Her feelings pave the way for a new story.

...Madoka Kaname, the girl who had become the pillar to the order of the circle and Sayaka Miki, the girl who had lost her life when her magical power ran out both appear in front of Homura. What is the meaning of the appearance of two girls who should not exist anymore at all? Will Nagisa Momoe, the new magical girl who has an unsure face, tell the truth of the matter? And what is the new being that fights against the order of god and tramples the world?

The true climax of Puella Magi Madoka Magica! The story reaches the unbelievable “incredible finale”...

Puella Magi Madoka Magica's original character designer Ume Aoki drew the third piece of key visual art which debuted on Friday. The tagline on the poster reads, "We could finally meet," and the art features Madoka Kaname, Homura Akemi, Sayaka Miki, Mami Tomoe, Kyōko Sakura, Kyubey, and the new magical girl Nagisa Momoe.

Starting on October 5, participating theaters throughout Japan will offer the third batch of advance tickets with a B2-size poster of the new art. The second batch with one of six different posters in a limited special poster box will stop being sold on October 4.
