The official website for the Tiger & Bunny anime franchise began streaming the full trailer for the Gekijō-ban Tiger & Bunny -The Beginning- film on Saturday.

Masayuki Ozaki, a producer for Tiger & Bunny at the anime studio Sunrise, revealed during the Tiger & Bunny panel at Anime Expo last Saturday that a new NEXT character will appear in the first film. Original character designer Masakazu Katsura created the character.

The trailer also features "Linear Blue o Kikinagara," the new theme song that Unison Square Garden, the rock band behind the television anime's first theme song, contributed for the film.

The full trailer is running in theaters starting this Saturday. The film itself will open in Japan on September 22. The website also presented the visual from the film's poster:
