Gekijō-ban Mahō Shōjo Madoka Magica Shinpen: Hangyaku no Monogatari (Puella Magi Madoka Magica New Feature: Rebellion), the upcoming third Madoka Magica film, will open in the United States, Canada, and France this year. Aniplex announced at Japan Expo in Paris that the film will open in France on November 16.
Japan Expo also presented the same teaser trailer that debuted in Japan on Saturday. The teaser showed new footage of Madoka, Homura, and other characters and had the following lines:
"No one understands this sadness I feel."
A solitary girl has arrived.
A beacon of light towards hope
The new "rules"
They will overturn everything
The shape of love
"Who are you?"
I want to meet you, just one more time.
The teenaged female duo ClariS and the Japanese pop trio Kalafina will be singing the theme songs for the film, just as they did for the television series and the first two films.
The film will open in Japan on October 26. Advance tickets went on sale in theaters on Saturday, and buyers can get the first batch of tickets with a card and an exclusive clear file folder. Aniplex aims to release the third film in still more countries worldwide, just as it did for the first two films.
