The "Utano☆Princesama Maji LoveLive 6th Stage" event revealed this weekend that the previously announced new anime project for the franchise is a brand-new anime film (as opposed to a compilation film).
Uta no Prince-sama - Maji Love 1000%, the first anime season adapting Broccoli's dating simulation video game for female players, premiered in Japan in July 2011. In the first season of the slapstick romantic comedy, the female protagonist goes to a school for the performing arts with young men who are budding idols. The subsequent seasons followed seven of the young men after they form the idol group ST☆RISH.
Niconico streamed the first series outside of Japan as it aired. The 13-episode second season, Uta no Prince-sama - Maji Love 2000%, premiered in Japan in April 2013. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. The 13-episode third season, Utano☆Princesama Revolutions, premiered in April 2015, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.
The 13-episode fourth season, Utano☆Princesama Legend Star, premiered in October 2016. Crunchyroll and The Anime Network both streamed the series as it aired. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series and plans to release it on home video.
