The Japanese film studio Kadokawa Pictures lists the fifth "Super Movie" ("Chō Gekijō-ban") based on Mine Yoshizaki's Sgt. Frog (Keroro Gunso) manga for a 2010 release in Japan. Junichi Sato (Gate Keepers, Pretear, Princess Tutu) will retain his chief director duties from the television anime series, while Susumu Yamaguchi will be the actual director of the fifth film (as he was for the second film). Hiroshi Yamaguchi (Bastard!!, Blue Submarine No. 6, Yukikaze) will write the screenplay, and the Sgt Frog television anime's Fumitoshi Oizaki (Kaleido Star) will design the movie characters. Kadokawa Pictures lists the film as monochrome, although that may be an error on the company's website.
