Idol Group 9nine Returns to Sing Star Driver Film's Theme
posted on by Egan Loo
The five-member female pop group 9nine is contributing the theme song for Star Driver the Movie, which will open in Japan on February 9, 2013. "Colorful" is the group's first theme song for a film, and it will go on sale as a single on February 6.
9nine's name comes from the original nine-member lineup at its founding in 2005, but it now has five members: actress Umika Kawashima, Uki Satake, Hirona Murata, Kanae Yoshii, and Sayaka Nishiwaki. The group already perfomed "Cross Over," the first ending theme song for the 2010-2011 Star Driver television anime series, and "Shining☆Star," the second opening theme. The group also performed the ending theme song "White wishes" for My Little Monster (Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun) anime and the theme song "Chikutaku☆2NITE" for the live-action Ranma ½ television special.
The Star Driver film will cover the same plot as the 25-episode television series, with a focus on the main characters Takuto, Sugata, and Wako. It will also add an all-new segment about their lives after the story of the series.
