Channel News Asia reported in May that Axxis announced "four live-action/computer-generated feature films valued at over US$135 million" at the Cannes Film Festival. The May 20 press release itself described Bubblegum Crisis as "a film based on the same-name original anime series from Japan about 4 young female mercenaries fighting for justice."
