Maaya Uchida, who plays Liliruca, said, "I've had so many opportunities to play Liliruca that it hardly even feels like it's been four years. I'm delighted to play her in a film as well!"
Yoshimasa Hosoya, who plays Welf, said, "The fact that the film was timed at this stage makes me think that this series will continue for a long while yet. I think it's a message to all the fans."
Sōma Saitō, who plays Hermes, said, "From the moment I first got involved in this series, I had a feeling it would make its way to the big screen. As a fan myself, I'm so happy to see this film come out!"
