posted on by Egan Loo
The staff of this year's two Puella Magi Madoka Magica films announced on Thursday that the films will open in 18 cities in eight countries and territories between October and December. The eight countries and territories are the United States, France, Italy, San Marino, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
Producer Atsuhiro Iwakami had revealed last November that the film trilogy will begin with a two-part compilation of the original television series, followed by an all-new film. Gekijō-ban Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica Zenpen: Hajimari no Monogatari will open on October 6 at Tokyo's Shinjuku Wald 9 and other theaters nationwide. Gekijō-ban Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica Kōhen: Eien no Monogatari (Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part II: The Eternal Story) will follow on October 13.
Update: A piece of key visual art for the United States release added.
